Any reason why you settled on the forester 6spd? Open front diff and viscous center diff, its not really a proper STi box.

You can buy these for $1200.00
Would suit most people's up grades in a street car. IMO good value for most

Yeah. I hear you on that one. The gearing in the forester box coupled with the diffs from an sti box would make for an awesome combo i reckon.

The thing i loved was it feels same as five speed and in sixth it sits at 2500 at 100kph instead of 3100 with the 5 speed.
I only wanted extra strength was not interested in dccd.
Also because i wanted to drag race, the long ratio means i cross in 4th gear instead of having to shift another gear in the cloae ratio

Yeah. I find with my box, being from a 2L STi it is too close geared. When im racing i find i get to the top of the rpm range, shift into the next gear, and im still at the fucking top of the rpm range. So annoying

But i find for me, the interaction of the diffs/dccd outwiegh the gear ratio annoyance. I havent driven the firester sti box, but i have driven a 5spd forester box and i know the difference in cornering/power deleivery with the dccd is so much nicer.

Didn't Rossco put down very close to 350 with a very very similar setup on 98, and 409hp on E85
