Default Another Subaru First from Kartboy

Finaly after a few delays we are happy to anounce the highly anticipated STi Shifter bushings for the USDM cars!
same great quality that you'd expect from us not some cheapass knockoff. (i'm sure that will happen soon anyhow)

Price is 32.00 this includes both halves of the shifter bushing along with a Stainless Sleeve that the new STi will need.

At the moment we do not have a install page but were working on that.

Happy Shifting

PS were working on another STi goodie too. stay tuned!

I'll be ordering my set when I return from UCKK. And would that "other" STi goodie be a shortshifter? If so, put me on the waitlist. Just tell me what the deposit is...

I'd much prefer that it just be a shifter lever like the one already available for the WRX and RS.

Well I can tell you that 95a bushings are 10x's as stiff as factory ones. Im sure with the 10% reduction with the short throw and the Kartboy 95a's I will be more than pleased. The stockers were soooo sloppy! In gear I could move the shifter left and right a couple of inches, also there have been reports of folks missing shifts on auto-x becuase of the loosy goosy shifter.

install is kinda a bitch to do. i'm sure we did things the hard way on the test car back in november. i think the easiest way is to yank the whole shifter assembly out of the car. i was trying to fight it and not have to do it. but then i wound up taking it all out anyhow. i'd guess its about a hour job. little more little less.
we hope to have the test shifter in a car soon. but honestly i think a set of shifter bushings on the car is enough. but we'll have to see how it all works out.
thanks for all the orders guys
our shipping guy is going crazy!

Lucky me- I'll get to install the bushings before the tranny is installed. Piece of cake.

No, just the transmission. I almost traded my RS for an STi, but I realized the transmission and block were really all I wanted. Saved myself $10k and my car is faster than a stock STi (well, once everything is installed...).

FYI - After you take the bushing bolt out as far as it will go, then remove the 3 bolts that hold the bushing bracket to the tranny.

Once the bracket is loose you'll have enough play to get the bushing bolt out, replace the bushing, re-insert the bushing bolt, re-attach the bushing bracket, then get the new bushing and bolt back in place.

If anyone need help, drop me a PM.

Big props to Mark and Tom for another fine piece.

Now I need one
