comment Why do 5- and 6-speed transmissions typically need different gear ratios?
My WRX is a 2004. Our gear ratios are basically identical and I was think the same thing coming down the bridge on the way to work. Shifting up from fifth would put me in reverse, though, so that would be bad. ;-)

FYI, the STI transmission has two "overdrive" gears: fifth and sixth are both lower than 1:1. However, they're also both taller than the WRX fifth gear

comment My subaru legacy will not boost
Are all the hoses connected to the turbo and waste gate? Do you have a boost gauge? Is it reaching boost?

comment What does a flywheel do and what is it connected to?
Replace all "weight"s with "mass". "Kinetic energy" --> "rotational inertia".
