sti gearbox in wrx

sorry if this question has been asked before have a 2001my wrx in the next month or so i think it will need a clutch just wondered while the gearbox is out if a 6 speed sti box would fit and if it is worth doing also assumes i can find a sti box any help would be appreciated

Cheers dan50

erm well u know u add about 25 kgs with a 6 speed so unless you have a bhp increase planed then its wont go down well,
That said a 6 speed is a close ratio box so does get ya going well but you do have a few more changes when your on it !

Re: sti gearbox in wrx

will also need rear diff,shafts and possibly prop,and the 5speed clutch will mate up to the 6speed box,the choice is yours my friend...

didnt realise 6 speed weighed so much have got power upgrade in mind but probabley only as far as an exhaust, filter and remap sounds like i would be better off with the 5 speed box
