Default Pics Inside of Stock Shifter vs Kartboy Short Shifter Height

Photo comparison of stock vs Kartboy short shifter height:

As you can see, the Kartboy Short Shifter shortens the height of the shifter almost exactly an inch from the stock shifter.


wider shot after Kartboy SS install.

Haven't seen this before and i was curious before i installed mine so i thought i'd post a comparison for those who are thinking about installing one. I just completed it and it's my first mod to my week old MY04 WRX Wagon!

It's even shorter with the knuckleball and helps ease the shifting a bit from the weight.

Nice pics and comparison job.

I have one question, is your "factory" shifter the regular one or the short shifter Subaru offeres as an option?

My car has the optional short shifter and seems to be pretty stubby as well. Have not measured it as you have though.

Question Prodrive SS

Prodrive.co.uk also does a quickshift kit for the Impreza,
but complete with a new linkage. Does that mean Prodrive
does it in another way ?

Any comments/views on the prodrive ss kit ?

My working theory is that the reason the linkage is different for shifters like the Prodrive, STI, etc. is to avoid the interference that requires the "shifter lever only" installer to grind away, flip, or remove altogether the plate that is under the console. (see installation instructions posted several places)

Can anyone confirm this?

I'll let you know next week.

I have the STi/SPT short-shift linkage with a Kartboy lever and knuckleball... the interior pieces are probably going back in this week after I reassemble the shifter cup at the bottom.
