BF Legacy GDB/GRB STi drivetrain questions.

Post by Swarz » Thu Oct 12, 2017 2:42 pm


Would like to know into how much of custom work I am getting into before buying a BF Legacy turbo. Of course I am in luck by having GDB donor car and some GRB bits too.

Want to swap GDB STi all drivetrain, 5x114.3 hubs, driveshaft, axles, r180, steering rack 6mt with dccd, also have GRB STi black brembos around which I would like to use. Wheel specs - 18x9.5 ET38/18x9.5 ET40

Right off the bat I know that the wheels will be a hard fit with custom bodywork.

Any other comments/advices?

I have my own reasons for this build, one of them being having something different and hard to complete.

That should be all for now, will add something if anything comes up.

I know it's a little late, but welcome to the BBS.

As for the swap, if you have a donor car it makes things MUCH easier. Here are my write-ups/info for my awd & 5spd swap and then 6psd swap.


And another 6spd swap thread
