one thing i did want to mention that is not correct/accurate from your post above:

you can install the r180 with STI axles and you do NOT need to change the hubs, brakes, wheels, etc.

i have the r180 installed on my 08 WRX with the 05 STI 6MT using 09 STI outers and JDM v7 inners (any 05-07 STI inners will work). i believe i mentioned this to you in our discussion, but perhaps my memory fails me. i got the idea from another member who has been running the similar setup for over 30k miles without hiccup. it's a great solution.
OK, so you need custom axles, but you don't need the hubs/brakes. I must have missed that in our conversation. That sounds like it would be an option at some point, but the r160 and stock axles was by far the easiest choice.
