this is a Larry Ganz roller bearing short throw shifter for 97-01 impreza. i bought it incorrectly for my impreza about 2 years ago, but i had a 96 and it didnt fit and ended up laying around the garage.
imprezas and forester share the same shifter design. as far as the install goes, we had to mcguiver it a little.
according to the install notes that Peaty provides at scoobymods, it says use a hammer to get the new shifter in.
that didnt work, the ball kept bouncing out of the socket cavity.
so instead, we used a peice of 1.5" x 36" wood with a groove running down the length of it. using this long and narrow peice of wood let us put the shifter rod into the groove and apply force from both driver and passanger side directly down onto the shifter (2 people pushing). this popped it in in a matter of seconds.
about 85% of the 'slack' in the shifter is gone. shifts are crisp, accurate, and more confident. throw is at near half of what it was stock. this is the way it should come from the factory (maybe some polyeurothane shifter bushings too)

the FXT just outperforms the gravel. its amazing how well it responds on it.

That's a nice looking little short shifter. I'm not sure if I'd want one though. The stock is fine enough for me coming from an old Ranger with about a foot of throw to each gear, lol.

I liked the little vid. That's what I do about evey day coming home from school, gotta love drifting and gravel.
