'06 WRX here with 74k. Cobb stage 2 for most of it's life, no problems. Factory short shifter is notchy as hell, but I feel like all short shifters are that way. On cold mornings I sometimes get a squeal when I first go into first gear, but it goes away after that. I never launch, and I'm pretty easy on it overall; not that I'm happy about having to be that way.

honestly how do you read the thread title " 08/09/10 5MT how are they doing?" and think your experience with your 2006 wrx applies ??

70000 miles with 210awhp/270awtq. The tranny is fine with the exception of the "tv snow" noise people are hearing. The clutch died at 39000 and I replaced it with an ACT which sucked and died when I pulled out of a snowbank after our large blizzard in MN last weekend. I will be replacing IT with an Exedy. ACT sux.

The decel noise I have has been there since I replaced the OEM one with the ACT. A kind gentleman at ACT informed me that the decel noise is common with an ACT HD kit used in conjunction with a OEM flywheel that has been resurfaced. Because of the "thinner" nature of the ACT assembly as a whole, coupled with the thinned down FW, there is much more slop or so it was explained to me. So, me no likey and going back to a brand I know works cuz I've had one before. That's all.

I think his point is all subaru 5mts have the possibility of having the decel noise. Mine has it bad with stock everything.

I do have natural gear meshing noise on decel that is a common sound with many types of gears however, the decel noise I call a decel noise and the one that's really grody, is this sh, sh, sh, noise, sounds like the disc sh, sh, sh,ing between the FW and pressure plate.

even before i modded my car, first, second, and third gears all whined and then whirred as well on off-throttle. The addition of the solid mounts made it pretty loud. Almost as loud as an aftermarket helical gearset. Most manual WRX's that i have been in with stock tranny's and clutches also do the same thing. I don't know why you think that you are going to change the past, but that's how it is. I don't care that your ACT does it too, that does not apply to my experiences.

Wow, you guys really don't read the posts. I DO have gear whine, I don't have a problem with that aspect. I will change the past.

2010 WRX, 100% stock, 13k miles

everything still feels fine, kinda surprised since this is my first manual and I know I grinded a bit the first 1000 miles or so.

oddest thing is if I'm moving forward at low speed (under 5 mph) and clutch-in and move the shifter into reverse (still clutch-in, in prep for backing into a parking spot), I get a wicked grinding noise that sounds like I'm trying to force it into reverse...

only happens if I don't let it sit in neutral for a tick

Reverse isn't synchronized. Don't do that . Come to a stop before you attempt to engage reverse.

100s of thousands of 5MT Subarus do it....GC/GD and now the new ones. Not all but many of them. It's blah tolerances and differential backlash. And as syndrome notes, it can come and go. Some people don't have it and replace their FW, clutch, PP and TOB with all OEM parts and it starts making the decel noise. And some people replace OE with aftermarket parts and it starts. Some people have it with OE parts and put aftermarket on and it goes away, etc.

what broke on his tranny. sounds like a manufacturer defect or improper gear tolerances to me at 3,000 miles unless every one of those miles was at the 1/4 mile strip

09 wrx with around 300 whp(stage 2+).

having no problem with 1-3, but having a little slip in 4th gear(if I really step on the accelerator the RPM's jump for a short time then they fall to the normal rate and I start to accelerate) but in 5th gear once I get above around 3000 RPM the tach jumps up and I really cant accelerate much further. Since noting this I have really pushed 1-3 and have no problems at all. t seems weird that i have problems in these gears and not the lower ones.

any ideas?

09 wrx 265, 21k miles on it. Completely stock except the dealer installed STI SS. I needed to do a U turn. I pulled into a driveway instead, put car into reverse and backed a little. The car jerked twice, stepped quickly on the clutch, put it into first, moved forward a bit, put it back into reverse and backed again with no problem. As soon as I took off though, it started making a sound that resembled a wheel bearing going bad and the sound was getting much louder when decelrating and it seemed like it was combined with a knocking sound under decel. It sounded just like what is those videos:

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2103908

The funny thing is that it was still shifting perfectly even though it was making that horrible noise. To the funny guys saying it is driver related well, usualy a beaten tranny will get bad syncros and dead clutch before getting a bad bearing. Besides, I was DD and lapping my 190k km 98 intgera GSR with stock clutch and tranny. That never happened.
