With this 6-Speed transmission swap package we've made finding the needed parts much easier for you. In the basic package we inlcude shift linkage, seals, gaskets, mounts, & stub axles that are needed for the 2002 -2003 WRX 6-Speed swap.
If you go with just the basic kit you will still need to source a transmission, driveshaft, shift knob, clutch & flywheel. You may need more depending on the rear differential you choose to go with.
If you are in need of a more complete swap we do offer the additional parts that are needed to do a complete swap. In this package we do allow you to tailor the install kit to your needs. Whether you have some of the parts sourced already or if you need everything from the transmission to the rear differential.
**Keep in mind we do base our swap kits on the 2007 STI transmission. So if you do have another model year transmission please make sure they are compatible. If you are not sure please contact us.**
When selecting your options select the options to match your needs. If you are using an r160 or r180 please select the respective parts for those rear differentials. They are vastly different depending on what rear differential you use for your swap.
For the 2002 - 2003 WRX the least complicated route for the swap would be going the r160 rear differential as you have most of the parts needed on the vehicle. We do recommend replacing them with new parts as they are 16+ years old, but is not entirely necessary depending on condition.
The R160 will need a different driveshaft as the OEM 2002 - 2003 WRX driveshaft will be too long with the 6-Speed, but we've got that sorted out for you!
If you plan to go with the R180 rear differential there is a lot more entailed with it. Driveshaft, axles, & differential mount have to be addressed. The wrx driveshaft is too long for the swap and does not have the mathcing flange for the r180. The axles will be hybrid axle that has a r180/sti inner and a wrx outer. With this package we have a variety of options to choose from and the parts you need.
If you are still unsure on what you need do not hesistate to contact us through live chat, e-mail, or phone.
**We will not be responsible for incorrectly ordered parts. You may incurr shipping/freight fees and a 20% restocking fee.**
