Not me.. I hated mine. Probably makes a great race car. But I didn't like it as a daily. It's not my style either

ya 5spds are made of glass. Youd probably have a few "cores" laying around. Or youd do a 6spd swap

Nice thread. That car feels way more comfortable sitting in it at dyno day than my camaro. I have always liked WRX's and if i ever bought an import it would be one of those. AWD Launch Control should rip out of the gate.

It's not that bad once you track down all the parts. Plenty of write ups to go off of.

All usdm Sti's had 6spds and I believe the 02/03 Sti's that are only overseas are 5 spds. Matt correct me if I'm wrong. Just going off the top of my head. 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 drove my buddy's. Felt like a mid 90's Jetta. Didn't like the plastic rattle and loose feel for a daily. I prefer quiet and comfortable for a daily.
