Default 04/05 sti owners that have a kartboy short shifter?

I have this shifter and am debating on putting it in. Anyone have it? I already have the kartboy front and rear bushings, also the tic shift linkage bushings. I wanted to know how much tighter the shifter is going to make it and whether or not it's worth it. Also, I know it sits 1" lower, anyone have pics of it in their car? Thanks ahead of time.

Were the bushings worth it? I am also debating the same thing but I have a WRX.

omg the bushings work wonders! Please it's a cheap mod, just get them.

Thanks for posting the pics bro. It looks like it sits pretty nicely. I may keep mine and not end up selling it.

Anyone else have any views on this?

lol Tom! Do you have any pics of how low the shifter sits on a 04? I am trying to maintain the high shifter look and make it short throw.

the picture above is one of our shifters installed. honestly after a day or so driving it will be second nature. the shifter height is only dropped 0.750-1.00 " its not that much

so it's a big deal? Can you notice a huge change in the shifter height? Also, did it make it stiffer?

yes, there is a noticable change in the height, you wont be able to go back after you change it.
