You have a V2 STi and it doesn't have the closed deck block I'm afraid.

Re: What kind of Impreza i got?

also it has written ATS LSD on rear diff #015399 and under diff is written 5Y KN31

rear lsd is really noisy especially when u turn car left or right or 360 slowly but for drift is great thing
is it Standard option for my impreza or not? i mean ATS LSD

also please advice how to take care about Gearbox to not kill it
actually this subaru i bought for my wife as Christmas gift. and dont want to let her kill its Gearbox soon. she love to race especially Drag


thx in advance

The diff is an aftermarket one.

As fot taking care of the box, would personally change the gearbox oil for fresh oil if it hasn't been done recently. Is the box ok at the moment? No crunching or anything in any gear?

Reverse is a bugger in the classics anyway so wouldn't worry too much. As for oil, if the box is in good condition then I personally would recommend Motul Gear 75w 90. That's what I use but it is a bit pricey. For a professional opinion add a post to this thread;

Oil advice and recommendations here

Subaru recommend gearbox oil changes every 2 years. Box takes about 4 liters if i remember correctly.

Heres a guide to changing gearbox oil;
