jdm sti spec c drivetrain swap to legacy turbo '92

Post by clamence »


I have an idea to swap complete (from gearbox to diff) drivetrain from jdm sti spec c 2005 (dccd, 114 hubs) to my legacy turbo '92.
I am looking for someone who has experience with such change, especially with use 5x114 hubs and 17" wheels.
I've seen some posts and sites describing similar change but based on 5x100 hubs. I do not know if it is big differences but I would like to avoid unexpected problems using drivetrain with 5x114 hubs.
I am interesting in any notices and tips could help me to realize my idea.
I would be really grateful for help.

Welcome to the BBS.

I don't know if anyone has any direct experience with that exact setup. However, the 6spd swap has been done. Check out the links in the sticky post in this forum.

There are a couple recent threads talking about the 5x114 hubs. I think getting the wider track and wheels to fit is going to be your biggest challenge.
