15 GBP STi
I just looked at the two spec sheets and maybe I should be getting the Street instead, due to it being "ideal for E85 applications".
I'm planning to be set up to run E85, but will probaby run 93 octane most of the time. I wonder how much difference the AOS makes between 93 and E85...

Transmission, before and after trans mount removal.
Oh, another thing... @Grinder34, that discoloration appears to be some staining from transmission fluid or something else like that. Since it's the first time I've had the transmission out myself (it's been out a few times before, done by shops), I can't really tell you what happened.
Disclaimer: Be suuuuuper careful standing your trans like this. You must have a void for the input shaft to sit in. Plus, it could always fall over and crack open or crush your foot.

Is the transmission heavy?
I'm leaving work around 1:30 today and driving it to TRE in Kalamazoo.

Sweet, can't wait for more updates!
This place is GREAT! They cracked it open on the bench for me while I was there. No gear damage, though the plastic pads on the shift forks are gone or nearly gone and many of the synchros are severely worn. Not bad enough to hurt anything, but bad enough that they don't work anymore.
They showed me how the whole trans operates, including how the DCCD works inside. And also went over the gear edge trimming, polishing, coating, shot peening, etc. that they do. I can hardly wait. This trans is going to be buttery smooth.
It's too hard to see the synchro wear in these pics, but look at the shift forks with the yellow pads. Then look at the shift forks in my trans. The yellow pads are either gone or nearly gone.
These guys are going to replace the plastic factory type fork pads with a bronze type material (I believe) that they make in house.

It is great that they took it apart while you were there and walked you through what they are planning to do. Great pics.
