Default Short Shrift on Short Shifter

If you plan to swap out the stock shifter bushings, get the ones for the WRX (usually black) and not the ones for the STI (usually grey or blue). Don't ask me how I know.

I installed the TVM short shifter (bought it from Rallitek for $110). It's a real nice piece and was easy to install. However, I found it a bit too short, so I yanked it. I'm not sure if I'll try another, but if I do, I will go with Cobb's adjustable-length shifter so I can get it at a height that I prefer.

I installed the Momo knob and think that's a great improvement over the stock knob (easier to grip). For what it's worth, I found it also fits the TVM short shifter--it screws right on.

Finally, I aslo installed the STI tranny mount. That went on without a hitch, if that's something you're thinking of doing.

Swapping out the bushings is worth doing. Shifting is more precise and there's a nice feel to it. I'm not sure about the value of the industrial-strength tanny mount. It's not apparent, in any case. It supposedly minimizes the possibility of missed shifts but that hasn't been an issue for me.

I have the Cobb setup, other than being tricky to mount the shifter to the shift linkage fork(tricky = real pain), I am very happy with the outcome. And I do feel a difference in the movement of the trans with the sti mount, meaning less movement.
