Default Perrin Short Shifter

Just installed the Perrin short shifter adapter and I noticed something that seems a little strange to me. The throw going into the 'top' gears (1,3,5) seems to be the same as it was before, but the throw going into the 'bottom' gears (2,4) is drastically shorter. Is there a reason for this? Anyone else experience the same thing with their adapter?

Yes the adapter tends to slide down the the shifter. You have to clamp the adapter over the central most point of the shifter shaft while in neutral. I recommend wrapping the area where the adapter clamps on in either electrical tape or other type of rubber material. With metal on metal the adapter tends to slide down the shaft as you shift, therefore shortening throws to 2nd 4th and reverse but lengthening 1st 3rd and 5th. Especially 5th.

i havent noticed this. All my throws are much shorter. I did tighten the hell out of the adapter though.

Thanks for the recommendation...I'll try it out when I have some time and see if it solves the problem.

My 2013 came with a short throw and a full spt catback from the factory I wonder if its adjustable, but my real question is does the short throw make a difference?? I really haven't noticed a huge change from my 08 wrx.

Depends how your driving the car I suppose, and which short throw you have. Shorter throw equals less time shifting and less time between shifts. Especially 4th to 5th.

Yea I suppose, I mean I feel that this car is quicker but maybe my STS is not as short as I thought. Kinda kool I guess because I didn't have to spend a done on it, came with the ride.
