To add more info here, thought I'd post the ratios I have for the WRX transaxles, and a couple others:
1-5 and R&P:
3.454 1.947 1.366 0.972 0.738, 3.900 (MY 02-05 US WRX)
I noted that the Forrester XT and Baja Turbo (MY 04-05) have the same 1-5 ratios, but run a 4.444 R&P. That's something that might work a lot better for acceleration or larger rear tires.
From there, the Impreza and Legacy (non-turbo) models seem to run a variety of different ratios and R&P combinations, depending on model, engine and year, but all run either a 3.90 or 4.11 R&P ratio.
Here's another interesting combo, MY 03-05 Legacy, Legacy Outback and Baja:
3.454 2.062 1.448 1.088 0.871, 4.111

Very good Jeff.. You saved me some time looking that up and posting a FYI. I've been told all the gears are interchangable in sets from year to year. Also Subaru makes a set of gears $$$$$ that they use for rally racing that are next to undistructable.
I'd like to see this site become the leader on rear, mid-engine and wiring for the Subaru powered Buggy's and rails. I think if we can get John at OutFrount (OutBack), Brett Longhurst at Bremar plus Breman now owns Saker to do some ad work here plus provide some info. would be a major plus. Just some food to think about. Besides rails are nothing more than a stripped down Buggy. We might even intice some $$$$ into building a modern Buggy.
At my age.. Everything I buy comes with a lifetime guarantee..
