This is the Kartboy Short Throw Shifter for the 2002-2007 Subaru WRX, and the 2000-2004 Subaru Legacy. This will reduce the shifter throw by up to 40%, providing a noticeable difference in feel as well. These will also reduce your shift knob height by 1”. The Kartboy shifter is constructed of CNC’d and TIG welded 4130 Cr-Mo steel. With proper hand tools installation should take right around 30 minutes. 



Please note for you WRX owners, that this is the correct shifter for you. This will fit in the 2002-2007 Subaru WRX with the factory shifter assembly only. If your car has the upgraded SPT/STI short shifter package, you will need to purchase the KB-001 part number. The easiest way to tell this is by pulling down your factory shift boot and looking at the color of the lever. If it is a gold zinc plated lever, then you have the STI option installed. If it is dark gray in color, then it is the stock assembly.

Bought this on my 02 Subaru 2.5 RS.. so cool! if you owned an 02 impreza Rs like me you WON'T need a c-clip pliers for these models. but it's freaking hard to pop the new short throw shifter in to it's place, you might wanna take a tiny bits of plastic off and lots of pushing force. took me a while but it's worth it. so fun to drive now. Definitely buy this first including the bushings, it makes a lot of your driving exp. different.

Great but.

The shifter feels great in quality but I honestly didn't feel a difference in the throw of the shifts. With the bushings it feels crisp and new though.

Amazing shifter from amazing company

I purchased this to replace the long and awful stock shifter in my 05 wrx while installation didn't go as easy as everyone said it would it is a quality piece from a quality company I had a question or two and Tom from kartboy answer with in minutes of my email he's amazing and so are his parts

Good

First off you'll need to watch several videos on how to install a short shifter, as Kartboy doesn't ship directions. It installed easily and the change was immediately noticeable. The stick is shorter as is the throw length, but it does take slightly more push to get in gear. It gives a tighter feel overall. Combine with the bushings to make a full difference.

  • AnswerQ: Shifter Bushings  03BugeyeSubie 1 year ago

    Are the bushings recommend to get along with the shifter or will the stock bushings work fine?


    • A: I personally would highly recommend the bushings as they greatly compliment the improvements made from the shifter itself. These bushings are by no means necessary for proper installation of the shifter itself.
