Default Difference between STi short shifter and dealer install short shift kit?

Anyone know the differences between the STi short throw shifter and the one that is available as a dealer install/dock install for the US Spec WRXs?

I noticed on the subaru build-a-car thingy that the short shift kit you can select says nothing about STi. This leads me to believe that it's different in some way.

Also, any suggestions on a US supplier for the STi short shifter and ballpark prices?

thanks, sorry if this has been asked before but I think I looked through the forum and didn't see an answer.

Thumbs up here let me try to help

The short shifter that your dealer installs is in fact the genuine STI part. The reason it has no mention of STI or says SPT is because a Company in the U.S. already has STI as thier Registered Trade Mark. so Subaru couldn't use STI here in the States... Hense this new fangled SPT catalogue and parts. Hope this helped.

Default interesting...

But why then is the muffler called the "STi Performance Muffler"?

I haven't taken delivery of a WRX yet, and I'm trying to figure out if I should have the dealer do the short shifter install or if I should just grab one with the normal shifter and slap a STi one on instead.

decisions decisions.

Thumbs up well...not sure what to tell you about that one...

Not sure why in the catalouge it would say that cause our version doesn't even have the STI embossment on the muffler for the very legal issue at hand. but I can garuntee that the short throw is a STI part! the box won't say STI but ask them for the part number on thier piece and compare it to the actual STI part number and they will be identical part numbers.same with my exhaust! I have the WRX STI exhaust on my MY00 RS and it sounds great(I just wish it had the STI logo on it) but the part number on it and the new Gen WRX STI muffler are one in the same! as much as this might sound like bad advice things like the short throw shifter and more mechanically intensive parts like suspension you should order with the car... I wish I had financed my parts when I bought my car!!!!! it's allot harder coming up with the money for the parts later than it is to finance it! hope this helps. oh yeah and don't be affraid to go to your local dealers parts department and ask them for the part numbers and than go to North Ursilia's web site and compare the part numbers!

Yeah.. That is what the deal is. They can use the STI performace on the website b/c it is their website. But in the dealers with the parts flyer or order book they have to use the SPT stuff...

If the mufflers are the same why does the JDM one say Genome on it and the US ones don't?
