Yukon or sti. Sti wins the ride battle even being lowered. I feel the ride and the noise is tolerable. I had a Jetta and never again will I buy a vw.

Drone is kinda inevitable with running Catless and with no res. At 70ish it's at 3k in 6th so it does get kinda loud. I know 04/05 trannys were geared different than the 06/07 ones and I'm sure the 08+ are also different ratios too but I think they all share a 3.90 final drive.
I believe you're correct on all that mike.
Only thing with the 6 speed vs 5 speed and gearing is yeah the final drive ratio between the two are different they work out to around the same in the end. 5th in the 5 speed and 6th in the 6 speed are about the same. Only advantage to 6 speed besides strength is the gears are closer together to keep you in the power band more.
6 speeds actually suck for drag racing as unless you have a higher rev limit you run out of gear in fourth and end up shifting with to make the quarter. Or over rev the crap out of fourth. Built 5 speed is the ticket for a subie drag car
6 speed is the road race choice. Gearing wise for a daily they are more or less equal on the highway.

I was helping my buddy with his 2012 sti the other day. He got an aftermarket tmic because he's gonna turn up the boost to catch up to my 95 lt1. His coupler blew off and it was boost leaking like a mofo. After we fixed it I was ripping around his and my other friends bug eye wrx. Those cars are so fun lol

They really are fun to bomb around in. Especially when you start really throwing them into turns under power

I haven't got the tires to squeal in his sti yet, but we hit some corners HARD!! They handle very well.
