Everything Is built in jigs and test fitted after final assembly for proper fitment. Why trust anyone else to powder coat your parts other than us? When we finish our coatings, we double check fitment, bolt holes and threaded holes.
***We require you to send in a 04-07 STI or 08-14 WRX or STI steering linkage for modification.(standard 02-07wrx linkage not accepted) See Picture below for part identification. Requires 02-04 wrx/sti steering rack for the subframe. 05-07 wrx/sti steering rack is not compatible.
If you have a Forester or Legacy we will need your Oem linkage as well as the new linkage without the bushing to be sent in for the custom linkage to be built for your car.

Such as rear trans brace must be removed from firewall and new compact clutch master cylinder.

• The new Transmission mount will work with a T56 6speed and F-body shifter and also now allows the use of a gm automatic transmission 4L60E, 4L80E, Turbo 350/ 400 or any automatic in that family. Your choice.
The mount does require drilling 1/2" holes for mounting. We recommend you installing the front subframe with your engine and transmission mated together to find the best suited location for your transmission mount. Simply bolt the transmission poly mount to the transmission mount and use a jack to raise the transmission up so the mount goes to the correct location in the frame rails. Mark and drill. Every Automatic Transmission style has different tail shaft lengths for mount locations.
With the automatic transmission pans, most require spot weld drilling and removal of the stock transmission mounting locations underneath your car.
