Default 5mt shift knob to 6mt stalk adapt

searched and didn't find so....

made a 6mt to 5mt shift knob stalk adapt for $11. here's how...

+ buy a 1/2" flare plug, $3 and change at loews. This threads perfectly and firmly into your 5mt shift knob. Also brass is easy to tap.

+ while there get a nut 12x1.25 to counter tighten against the flare plug, maybe $2

+ buy a 12x1.25 tap, $6 and change at Northern Tool. Sets at sears and northern tool do not have this size tap.

+ drill a larger pilot hole through the flare plug and at same time all the way through the plug end, sez use 27/64" drill, I bought a 7/16" and worked great.

+ thread the flare plug hole with the tap.

+ tighten flare plug into your shift knob...I placed knob in vise with protection on each side and made really tight.

+ thread counter nut then shifter onto shift stalk. tighten.

+ I zip tied my shift boot right below the shift knob to hide the brass and counter nut

+ reverse lockout ring works well from inside the boot.

Would it be possible for you to machine my momo (05-09 legacy 5 speed)shift knob to fit the 6 speed transmission and reverse lock out?

TIA,
Anthony

besides the thread pattern number referenced in the original post, are there any other fitment metrics to worry about?

I ask because I would like to use a shift knob I had in a previous car (sold it when i sold the car, i should have held onto it).

http://www.carmate-usa.com/html_razo...shift_m_gt.htm

Can anyone provide some insight on whether or not this kind of RAZO will fit in m 2013 WRX?

Also, any guidance on how to lower the shift knob height? The STi short throw kit was in the car when i got it, but i'd like the height of the knob reduced if possible. (I have a feeling this answer may be in a different post but I havent been able to find the info via search)

I have the titanium sphere knob, and it significantly lowers the height, just by sitting lower.

It is also *significantly* more solid than the stocker STI knob on the factory 5sp short shifter, since there's no acryllic(?) insert like the stocker.

I'm not sure what variation Chris does on shallow/deep drilling the Ti spheres, maybe he'll comment.

Both feel and shifting effort are increased by this setup.

From my experience, A polymer sphere with a decent balanced weight and make all the difference compared to a stock knob.

Default Do the 2004-2007 STI shift knobs fit the 2008 up models

Hey just got a 2012 STI and wanted to know if the 04-07 knobs fit the 2012 model. I assumed they were the same but when I called Cobb tunning they said they have a different part number for the 07 compared to the 2012. I had a few knobs when I had my 05 and 06 STI and was hoping to get one of those again. Thx

Wow these are nice. If I do the 5mt swap like I want i'll pretty much surely be buying one in the near future. I like them a lot, and they look extremely well crafted.

So are you saying that the 06-07 sti knob is 180g compared to the 04-05 sti knob being 69 grams?
