Yep, it will fit; but remember, the regular 2005 transmission has a 3.9 final gear ratio, the 2005 with the sport package has 4.11 fgr. If your front and rear differentials don't match, you'll toast the center diff...

Correct. You could try to find a 3.90 ring and pinion set for the rear diff, they seem to pop up in the classifieds fairly regularly.

a NEW one or a newER one?
You have lots of choices on trannies (5spd). You are not LIMTED to the Impreza 2.5RS trannies only. You have Forester trannies, Legacy GT's non-turbo, Outbacks.....

If you like shorter 5th gear, the Outback has this; 97-04 non-turbo 4.111FD.
Forester 97-04 4.111FD
Impreza 2.5RS 98-03

I persoanlly was looking for a Outback tranny. Those are on Outbacks, and people who OWN outbacks drive less wildly and are not HARD on the tranny. muahaha
