What can you tell from this??
Well, I've been trying to find the Service Manuals associated with the STi at TechInfo.Subaru.com. One of the search methods, besides supplying year/model (so far, no 2004 option), is to supply the last 8 characters from the VIN (which I've just found doesn't work yet, either).

I did note the character "L" in your VIN with interest. That position is reserved for transmission type and previous Impreza VIN values included "G" for "Full-time AWD 5-speed MT" and "H" for "Full-time AWD 4-speed AT." I guess we can assume that "L" in that position means "Full-time AWD 6-speed MT."

I wonder what happed to the Impreza "K" transmission?
