MY96 Time Attack
and 06 STI daily

Default Swap is done. WRX tranny with v6 RA gears into Legacy SS.

Just in case anyone is wondering what's involved...we put a wrx tranny with v6 sti type ra cryo treated gearset, wrx rear end, and rear axles in our shop's 91 legacy sport sedan rally car a few months ago.

What you need:
WRX tranny
WRX rear end
WRX **SEDAN** rear axles
A bolt to mount the starter and a helicoil.

The tranny bolts right up but the wrx uses a stud and the wrx uses a bolt for the starter so you'll need to helicoil the legacy block and run a bolt through the starter into the block. The speedo sensor and other harnesses etc. all plug right in.

The wrx rear end has different bolt spacing on the coupler to the driveshaft, so you put the coupler from the stock rear end on it, and you're all set.

The wrx rear axles fit up without issue. Just make sure you put the right axle on the right side (they are different lengths).

The difference in handling with the rear LSD and a center diff that isn't shot from 10 years of abuse is staggering. The car used to flip from under to oversteer and back while appliying constant throttle which was disconcerting to say the least. Now it's predictable and traction is, of course, much improved.

If anyone has any questions, let me know. Custom front mount IC coming soon!
