This is going to be a future sticky thread. This is going to be a massive and ambitious overview on the changes done of the STi transmission over the years. This will take a lot of time and thorough research until it gets completed and will constantly be edited with new information. This will be based off of the USDM transmissions from 2004 to present time.
