wouldn't have thought much to worry about roadwise but heavy 1/4 mile launches is anyone's guess.
I have the 6 speed conversion on my newage wrx wagon which is a heavier car and was ok up to 460hp launching at 4900rpm but snapped a front driveshaft when pushing 500hp using nitrous. The sti items are much beefier by comparison.
