I will say this:

I know alot of people that have busted trannies in the 2.5RS and WRX. Both with power mods and without. With that said, I have over 30K miles on mine and have no problems. I did have the clutch shudder problem the clutch was replaced at 17K miles. It seems to be doing fine, but when starting you do have to slip it just a bit or it will shudder. :(

The people that I know that have blown them- some of them could break even the hardest dog-box money could buy and then there are some that have experienced catastrophic failure of no fault of there own.

BTW, Subaru's Pro Rally team is using the STi transmission in the car. There were quoted in Grassroots Motorsports as using 26Lbs of boost in the car without problems WITH RALLY USE. They even said the limit was somewhere between 29-30Lbs :eek: :D That's upwards of 400HP people!! :) One reason to wait- you do get a much stronger tranny, no bull. :wink:

Even the media overseas notes the traditional tranny problems with the WRX and praises the STi transmission.
