I just ordered one of these kits for my wife's 2011 WRX. I hope to install it next week. Thanks for the write up and I definitely plan to keep this with me while I do the work. Finding the parts with pictures handy is a great asset to keep. I have a 2008 STi with the SPT shifter. My wife loves how it feels vs her stock shifter, so I hope this will work out well for her. She also had a 2009 Civic SI before the WRX, and I'm pretty sure it was a short throw as well. Never researched it though. Thanks, and I should be able to do a pretty good comparison when it's done.
