Default New Combo Deals from Kartboy

With the recent release of the 6SPD knob, I finally had some time to sit down and make some new combo deals for the shifter, bushings, knobs setups.
There are just too many combinations to type out here so please check out the website for all the different deals.
Thanks

I have a JDM version III STi drivetrain in my car. So do I need the old school or the new age Impreza short shift lever?

The car came with a Kartboy Forester XT short shifter in it, but it's too tall and bugs me.

Thanks - Jon

Possibly looking at either:

Kartboy shifter bushings - set of 4?

or

Kartboy Short Shifter and bushings


my wrx (2004 wrx 2.0 ltr) came with Subaru short shifter preinstalled, if that affects what parts i need.

Please PM me with best Nasioc pricing and recommendation. Thanks!

Hi
If you car has the factory short shifter you will need the earlier RS style shifter. they are narrower than the stock ones. Our shifter reduces the throw by an additonal 20% from what you have in there now.
i'd recomend doing at least the front shifter bushings if not both.

Shipping is flat rate at 3.00 for all orders shipped USPS Priority mail( 2-3 days)

please check the website for the combo prices.

Tom, I'm not too knowledgeable on what the model numbers Subaru made from before 02 wrx came out. is your part number "KB-002-1997 - 97-01 Imp., 97-99 Leg, 97-04 For." the one I am looking for, or is it "KB-030-1997 - 1997-2001 Lever/Front/RearBushings"

I want to make sure i am getting the correct things

I tried checking the kartboy site, but I got a bit confused. If I wanted a short shifter and front/rear bushings for an 05 WRX which would I choose??

Oops, looks like my cryptic wording got the best of you. Sorry about that. If you go back and re-read it i listed 2 parts from your site.. Theres two that look right on your site:

KB-002-1997
KB-030-1997

Theres a $30 difference in the two... so which is the part i need for the 04 wrx with subaru's 'upgrade' short shifter installed from the dealer?


UPDATE EDIT:
Just ordered both sets of bushings from kartboy.com. if you can get in touch with me and we can add the shift lever into my order manually that would rule. I left you detailed email to sales@kartboy.com with about 5 ways to contact me.

Thanks!

hey tom, got any pictures of your 6spd SS installed vs. an STi 6spd SS? I am interested in how much lower yours is because I feel like mine should be used in a truck

Hey Tom!

Shifter bushings work great. Even the wife likes the feel.

Any chance the muffler hangers work on the Legacy GT? My exhaust is all over the place.


EDIT: Just saw them on the site. (KB-011-LEG - 2005 & Up Legacy Kit)

Tom, will the rear shifter bushing fit my version III tranny? I assume it will, but I wanted to make sure before I buy.

Also, I have an 02 WRX shifter that I kept from my old car and I need to ge the narrower version to fit in my new STi linkage. Is it adviseable to just grind down the sides to make it fit? (I'm having little success with selling or trading it )

the rear bushings should fit no problems. they are the same for almost all the AWD subie cars.

you could grind down the sides of the shifter to make it fit but i dont really recomending doing so without the proper tools. you will need to chamfer the inside edges to the bushings to seat correctly. best bet would be to put it up for sale. used KB shifters seem to hold their value quite well..

The Short shifter, shifter bushings, and rear bushings just got installed on my car. The difference is subtle but noticable.. its hard to describe well..

First I'm coming from a Subaru Short Shifter already, so the length isn't too significantly different (plus i hadnt seen the car for a week so any 'night and day' difference would be a bit forgotten...)

Anyhow the bushings both went in simultaneously so I dont know which does what, but the feel is better than the subaru. I think the amount of annoying inability to shift into first is lessened, and the feel is a little less spongy/bouncy/rubbery.. again words don't help much here, but I like it.

Hey Tom do you know this short throw shifter? It is good or its better to get a Kartboy with the bushings? The car is a 05 2.5rs.
