My favorite wagon quote:
I needed to both haul stuff and haul arse.

im talking about the jdm sti not the usdm sti.. the jdm is a 2.0 not the 2.5 so it should be somewhat similar right? i just thought it would bolt right up since it was the same engine and all...

Congrats on the sticky Ash!

I can contribute to this thread by attesting the O.E. USDM STI Tranny > O.E. USDM STi clutch.

In a momentary, yet complete lapse of reason, I lauched from 6.5k uphill with three passengers in the car. First held strongly, leaving the clutch to completely fail engaging. I was only able to preload the suspension and the clutch smoked very nicely! Even better than that guy in the white Firebird in that "priceless" video!

I don't know whether to attribute this to the strength of 1st gear or the weakness of the clutch. Either way, it was probably best the clutch gave in this case!

Sorry about bringing this back from the past, but the tranny i use is the Kazz gear set, it also has teh awesome whine of 1-3 being straight cut, I am able to shift into first with out issue, I have mobil 1 syntehic in gears right now. Only thing that sucks about the gear set is 5th is so short hit 7k rpm around 130, other than that it is great feels like I am always in the power band. Now with my new setup i will be able to hit 8k rpmwith out much to worry about.

But the aritcle is great and i think next time i switch my trany fluid I will try the Neo oil.
