The transmission hasn't been bolted up yet in mine... but progress is coming along at a snails pace.

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?

Andy, perhaps only the relevant swap parts would help....

Whatever you do, do it right.
