This Shifter makes a huge difference!! I dont have any of the winding noise everyone is writing about and the installation was super easy. This shifter is very smooth and does make the car feel a lot more responsive.

Best mod ever 3 years ago
mmsautner
Seriously, I comtemplated doing this for so much longer than I should have. It is the best mod I have done on any car I've owned. From here on out, I will always install a short shifter on every car I own. Five stars on the install because I paid someone to do it for me. Great choice on my part. Oh, and do the bushings too!!!!

Kartboy sti short shifter 3 years ago
kingcobra1983
Install wasn't too bad, I installed same time as I did the Cobb stiffer bushings and Perrin reverse lock out. Install wasn't bad. Just make sure you use the second zip tie underneath the car and move the reverse lockout cable away from the drive shaft. If not you will hear a ticking in 5 and 6 gear while driving. I tightened nice and snug. I placed bearing grease on the shifter where the Perrin reverse switch is, if not it won't slide back down to its original position. Also the shift knob will sit around an inch shorter. Feels great!

Feels great,but pain in the but install 3 years ago
deneshsantiago35536
the shifter is great shifts a lot shorter,and smoother...feels a lot better then stock and also shorter in height...only rec is to get the perrin lockout reverse lever because when you try to put the pin back in,it has some slack in it and makes some noise when shifting,cause the lockout was moving around and the perrin uses a screw and not a pin....

  • Q: major difference between STi sts?  bst_lfe_sti4 years ago

    I have a 2013 sti with the factory sts. I know this will change the height of the shifter but curious about the throws? The video didn't say if your sti had the sts or not. I'm doing my clutch next weekend and if this makes a substantial difference between the factory short throw then I'll probably buy it along with the bushings.
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  The factory short shifter reduces the throw by approximately 10% and this shifter reduces the throw by about 40%. This shifter will also lower the stock knob height by about 1 inch.

  • Q: Knob  zeus122376046024 years ago

    Will the stock shift knob on an 05 STI work with this shifter? Thanks.
  • Q: Slop.  nedimiiedin4 years ago

    I have a decent amount of slop with my stock shifter (2005 STi). It was never firm to begin with when I purchased it a year ago. I have installed pivot bushings, and the front/rear kartboy bushings, and it is still decently sloppy. If I were to purchase this shifter, should it theoretically remove all the slop that I currently have? Thanks!
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  Investing in the actual shifter should help alleviate some of the slop or at least help reduce the actual throw distance over the OEM shifter. Primarily speaking, replacing the bushings in the best solution for removing slop from the shifter, which you have already done. Have a nice day.
