Kartboy Short Shifter for Impreza/WRX Five-Speed
Fabricated right here in the US from CNC'd and TIG welded 4130 chromoly steel, Kartboy's short throw shifter shortens shift travel by 40%.
Simple installation takes about an hour. (Allow a little longer on 2008+ cars because you have to take apart more of the interior.)
NOTE: If you have the accessory STi short shifter assembly (you can identify by the gold colored shafts, and by the narrower-width pivot) on your 04-07 Impreza/WRX, you'll need the GC version of this short shifter, available below. If you don't know, take your console apart and look at, and measure the shifter pivot point! See below for a photo of what the shifters look like.
Available for all five-speed Impreza and WRX. If you have an STI model, you'll want the Kartboy six-speed shifter.
