Default Kartboy lever + STi shift assembly??

Can the Kartboy short shifter be used with the STi short-shift setup? Is it even worth it?

thanks

The STi setup was too tall for my taste. The best combination is pairing the lever with ALL of the shifter associated bushings (kartboy and TIC bushings). I have upgraded pretty much every bushing associated with the shifter and would never go back.

its not worth the extra $$ imho
but if you must have the linkage from the STi, you will need the narrower RS style. assuming this is for the 5 speeds. 6 speeds are all the same
