Get a Kartboy shifter, the newer style kartboy looks a little nicer too having intergrated the bottom ball into the whole shifter out of spun metal (i think) as soon as I get one to photograph I'll update my pics.

get the shifter bushings too:

Everybody likes Kartboy and they are great guys. I think the STI is a bit taller (similar to stock RS) than the Kartboy. Don't buy the complete STI lever/linkage kit. Too much $ and more work with the same end result as just changing out the lever. I have a Graham Goode which I think is the same as the STI lever only and I really like it. I didn't want the shift know to get any lower than it was with the RS shifter I was running. A new option that looks pretty cool is the Rev-Lab shifter (search vendor classifieds for Rev-Lab and you will find it). Very high tech Titanium, aluminum, steel combination construction.
