Default Short Shifter for Free?

Folks--an idea coming out of the Supra community that may be true for WRXs. On a MkIII Supra, the shifter looks just the same as a WRX. There is cynlinder with a metal rod coming out of the top and the bottom. Just as on the Subaru, the bottom rod connects to the linkage and the top rod has the shifter knob attached to it. What we'd do on the Supra is to tear that cylinder off. The cylinder basically had the two rods embedded in some very firm rubber to reduce road noise and vibration. If you just removed the cylinder and the top rod, you could attach the shift knob directly to the bottom rod. Is this true for Subarus? Can you just get a blow torch and remove that cylinder for a DIY (Free) short shifter?

I own a 1990 Toyota Cressida with a mkiii Supra 7MGE/W58 swap and I can confirm the design is not even close to my 2007 STi.
I know you got an answer already, but I wanted to solidify the answer with proof lol.

It's called the sogi mod btw, it was done to my Cressida. lol.
