Late model wrx 6 speed vs STI 6 speed

Postby crembz » Wed Mar 01, 2017 8:07 pm

Hey so plenty of info on STI 6 speed conversions, just wondering whether a late model 6 speed out of a wrx would be a viable swap? Seen a few pop up at very reasonable prices. Anyone know how they compare?

I believe the late model 6 speed is based on the 5 speed box and not as strong as the good old sti 6 speed with the r180 rear diff.

However you do have the possibility of looking for one of the liberty gt 6 speed boxes or the similar year range 3.0 h6 6 speed box.
