Default 5 Speed SPT Short Shift Lever

WTB: 5 Speed SPT Short Shift Lever

Anyone with the SPT shifter upgrade to something else and have your SPT lever sitting around?

I'm looking to pick up an SPT shifter (lever only) for my 2011 WRX. Like this:



Please post or PM with price and pictures available. Thanks!

I'm in the same boat as you. Was thinking of switching to kartboy, I need to look into it further to see if it is worth it.

Do you still have the adjustable, xluben or are you on kartboy? Are you tired of it now?

they say on rsd that you can mix kartboy. I'm not even sure the sti shifter lever is even shorter than stock, I think the whole difference may be in the linkage

stock


sti

Having driven my car with the stock shifter and stock bushings, STi (5 speed) shifter and bushing and the Kartboy shifter with Kartboy bushings, it is such a HUGE difference. Add in the Cobb Knob and you get some really solid shifts.

$160 is money well spent for the Kartboy shifter and bushing combo. Install is kind of a pain in the ass but well worth the effort.

I'm pretty sure his build is just a bit beyond adding bushings, shifter, and a weighted knob

My guess is he's probably trying to compare this shifter to his MODE adjustable...

Wow, I guess I forgot to subscribe to this thread!

The stock and SPT shifter use the same linkages. The lever itself is what makes the throws shorter. Here is an image I made:



You can see that the lower section of the SPT shifter is slightly longer, which results in shorter throws. The top section of the SPT shifter is shorter to keep the overall height similar to stock. The overall build is nearly identical to the stock one.

I do have the bushings, and I had the COBB/MODE adjustable shifter. I loved the shifter, but when I switched to the PAR gears it felt like the throws were actually too short/notchy, and I also wished it was a little taller (even at full height it is still quite a bit shorter than stock).

So I sold the shifter and went back to stock. I like stock a lot, but I recently found out about the SPT lever being different so I thought it might be worth giving it a try. The throws won't be as short as a COBB or Kartboy, but it might be perfect for me.

Anyways...

BOUGHT AN SPT SHIFTER! NO LONGER LOOKING! THANKS!
