This is my new 2012 6mt about to go in to a my10 sh9

Sti grb 6mt gear box with clutch slave and fork
Sti grb R-180 3:54 diff
Sti grb tail shaft
Sti grb gear box mounts
Sti grb Shifter
Sti grb knob
Jpm 6mt shift boot
Sti grb drive shafts
Sti grb 114.3 hubs
Extreme chromoly flywheel
Exedy heavy duty sports clutch
Dccd pro (optioned)

To do a sh9 6mt conversion you will need all the above besides
Drive shafts and hubs .stock clutch and flywheel will be fine and dccdpro is optional but if your going to all that work seems a shame not to install one ,one prob I had so far you will need the mounting brace and mounting bolts for the diff the forester brace and bolts are different , il up date in the next month about the install

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 get that sometimes but it's never been annoying enough to address.

JDM STI driveshaft

Kartboy hub adapter plates

Here is where I get to be "that guy".

Does anyone have a complete parts list of what you need to swap a 6 spd. into our cars?

My list goes something like:

Transmission
Shifter/linkage
transmission mount
Clutch fork
starter
drive shaft
rear axles (fronts aren't necessary, right?)
rear differential
subframe
subframe spacer removal
DCCD Pro (optional)

Well i did this swap with the help from my local shop -metro performance-

my parts list:

-05 sti tranny with AP sure track front LSD
-sti driveshaft
-Cobb SS - kartboy rear bushing, cobb front bushing.
-ACT 6 puck sprung clutch kit
-sti starter
-Still have the sub frame spacers in
-the rear end is different from most of the swaps on here tho, I have a legacy (90's) rear diff 3.90, with legacy rear axles. (fit into forester hubs)

Also am not running Dccd or dccdpro

I used 04 Forester xt front axles

I am waiting on getting a R180 to complete the brembo swap (5x100)

I've been posting on the 6spd sticky, but I just purchased a fsti 6spd swap. I plan on taking spacers out, I'm finding out that the fsti probably has spacers do now I'm researching measurement on the fsti driveshaft and carrier. The tyranny xmember resembles fxt but has a 6spd bushing/mount as its shorter than the 5sdp mount. I'm trying to get Sti alignment and deleting spacers
