Going back to stock will cost very little less.

You could do a JDM swap for cheap. I wouldn't call that stock, and at that point you just mix and match. Look at my list. There only thing non-stock on it are the SB for $1K more, and oil pickup which you would be wise to do with any block.

You might pickup a JDM engine and trans for few $K? I never priced an STI engine and trans.

Added: Just remembered - I have a set of stock 05 gears, narrow ratio, the ones you replace to wide ratio gearing which is what I did, and why I have em. These were fine and include main shaft and 2nd through 6th. I paid almost $1500 for the LR gear set. I'd let the set go for for $500+ shipping. - the cost of a new shaft and third gear alone.
IMHO, to justify its' price, the S209 needs to perform at least as well as my moderately powered 05 built beater, and even that might not convince me to buy one cause my next STI isn't likely to be moderately powered.

I'm putting IAG back in here. Engine wise the car hase been trouble free for 56K. My STI is nearing the 60K minimum JJ led meto expect from a 2618 piston equipped block and it's still running strong.
