Default Short throw Shifter from Subaru.

Will I benefit from the brass bushing, and pitch stop offered from Perrin, or is the STS already upgraded?

Yes you will benefit. The factory STS, shortens the THROWS. The two things you are adding have nothing to do with the length of the throw. They firm up the shifts (bushing) and add a piece of metal that helps strengthen the shifter (minimally) but allows you to clean up the 1-2 slop.

I have both mods on my factory upgraded STS. Shifter still sucks. Money will spent to clean up what I can. Minimal effort installing both.

Nope... JSCSpeed. I get everything from Justin, because he's awesome. He has a 15wrx and tracks it, instructs noobs at track days and I love supporting his business.

Guys , there is only one "short shifter" on the market, and that's boomba. I refer you to the install video and the awkward angle of the shifter before you spend your money on it. Kartboy has been developing something for several months now, I'm sure we'll get a product soon. I am uncertain if Cobb is developing something or not.

Glad to hear Kartboy is working on it. Thanks.

Not interested in Boomba, unfortunately.

From the kartboy thread, it sounds like they're throwing in the towel on the 2015 wrx short shifter...huge disappointment. Seems to be much more complicated than the STI. Now I really regret not getting the STS from the factory

Were not totally out. Just taking a step back for a little while.
Believe me, we'd love to have a setup that's worthy of the kartboy name in production.

Great to hear! The sts is always the first mod I look forward to in a car, and I've heard kartboy's are the best.

Given the photos and videos I've seen of the disassembly of the shifter, I'm not surprised Tom. Is it possible to make bushings or things that can be easily replaced in the meantime?

My 0.02c to add to this convo:
Factory STS or not, the shifting mechanism is a giant pile of donkey doodoo, and the soonest I can afford to replace it completely, it's going to. I see it jump almost out of gear everytime i shift.. I'm not going to be surprised to have recalls later in the mileage. 13k later, it's still taking my abuse though, so I have that going for me.
