Mine was swapped in 2011. JDM 2004 transmission. Full Brembo's and rear STi rear subframe. Also have a dccdpro controller. Just to install an 04' STi cluster.

Question for those with the DCCDPro controller, do you guys notice any light buckling/vibration when in auto mode during slow initial turn - like if you are still releasing the clutch and turning from a complete stop?

I can never be certain of what my controller is doing because I don't have a STi cluster in my car. I sometimes notice the low speed/maneuvering binding of the centre diff when its in auto. Where do you have your adjustment knob when in auto? The ddcdpro auto isn't like the standard STi auto. It can be altered unlike the STi factory controller.

I typically have it scrolled all the way down and clicked in.
