Sweet! That's cheaper than expected. And a tranny is all I need. The drive shafts and everything else will be custom anyway.

Ive priced 6 speeds from various sources (ebay,craigslist etc....) and it all depends if you want just the tranny or the whole 9 yards for the swap....tranny,R180 rear diff, axles, hubs,brakes etc...but i have seen just the trannys sell for as little as $1800-$2000....

As I said, its till in the beginning stages, I have to swap out my stock EA81 for a performance tuned, aeronautic engine. Hopefully with forged pistons, aluminum headers, etc, etc, etc. For now, though, I'm stuck with my stock engine and 4 speed tranny. But I have some connections to the aeronautics field, that may allow me to get my hands on one for cheap. :) I'll keep everybody posted on how its going. Btw, anybody know how much an STi tranny would cost from a wreckyard? 6 speed manual only, clutch optional, probably be putting an adapter plate between the clutch and the engine anyway, so its not absolutely necessary. Anyway, yeah, when I'm done I expect 450+ WHP and the ability to spin all 4 on dry pavement. Anybody wanna race? Or should I say, Any Evo wanna get creamed?

Dude you have got to take some pics for me of that thing!..That will be disguisting if it all comes together well...Twin Supercharged dear lord...Naw i chose Evothis a while ago when i just had my N/A legacy and the dude where i worked had a 540 WHP 10 second EVO....the thing was def. fast but no matter how much i tried i still couldnt "like" the car...a few months back I bought me an 02 WRX....Currently ive got a map on it tuned to 417 WHP at 24 PSI...but get back at me with project dude....I would love to see that thing go through state inspection/emissions...lol
