Default Where to try out a short shifter in NJ

So I recently acquired a 2012 WRX, and like many others I find the gears a bit hard to find, imprecise. So I figured I'd rectify that with a short shifter. My issue is, I'd like to try one out before buying and installing it. None of the dealerships by me have any cars on the lot with one installed. If anyone in NJ has one, I'd be eternally grateful if you'd let me sit in the drivers seat for like 10 seconds- we don't even have to turn the car on.

Ditto, azp Installs would be the place to call.

Also the dealer installed spt short throw is MUCH different than the kartboy. Kartboy is much more significant In making it crisp, throw in their bushing too and youll love it.

In all honesty almost everyone has a short throw just find a local meet...

I'm actually right near that place. I live in Piscataway during the week, up at Rutgers. Maybe I'll check em out just for the heck of it.

I know you ordered already, but I'd like to add that a Kartboy Shifter bushing made quite a difference in my 04 STI. Shifts were much more notchy after the install.

You want the bushings for sure. We stock them, so if you want us to do the install and put those bushings in just let us know and we'll set you up.

Ayyyy Paisan! That's an awesome last name. Thanks for the offer Mike. Once I get the short shifter in, if it doesn't improve the accuracy of the throws then I'll make an appointment. Just a question, I was considering stopping in to see what you guys stock. Is it just a mechanic shop or do you guys display and sell parts as well?

We are generally an install place, we do stock most of the KB common items and a few other commonly replaced parts. We have a warehouse in PA that we usually get any parts we need within 1 day for customers of ours. Definitely stop by anytime we are always happy to shoot the breeze and are also track instructors if you are into road racing at all.
