Hey everyone im sad and happy to say im most likely getting an 05 STI here in the next few months for a smoking deal with hella low miles but my fiance refuses to drive a manual and i refuse to sell my focus so ive come to the conclusion if i am not selling it why not make it an auto its hard to even think about but ive been wanting an sti for awhile now, just wondering exactly how much work it will be i know major stuff like computer center console transmission pedals but is there anything else??

Unless you change the PATS receiver (and keys and ign cyl) from the car that is donating the computer, services of a dealer computer to reprogram that may be required. You may also need to add some additional wiring to the car, like the Turbine Speed Sensor, atx connector wiring and splice into the harness and/or add pins to the connector plugs going to the CPU.
(haven't done it, just speculating here)
