Hmm..don't think the RS transmission will stand up to an STi engine for very long. The WRX used the RS transmission in the beginning and a number of folks had problems in that area. The RS transmission wasn't an extremely strong box.

If you just drive it like a normal human it'll hold up fine. If you're redlining it all the time and shifting hard and banging gears it will 100% break.
