short shifter

Ive been wanting to get a short shifter for my 06 wrx, my buddy suggested a b&m but I could save money,which is important right now, by getting a kartboy. I dont know whether or not the quality is up too par with the kartboy so if someone who knows could give me some advice on both or on any other short shifters. I would greatly appreciate it

Look into ixizshift @ ixizconcept.com. The 2nd version is double adjustable and well-priced. I've had a few shifters (including kartboy), and have really come to appreciate adjustability.

I am thinking about selling mine with the Sti titatium shifter, only had it for about a month. I would be selling it for probably 120-130

+1 Kartboy short shifter
+1 Kartboy polyurethane front and rear shifter bushings

I have this combination and it feels great. It makes a pretty noticeable difference - even in a brand new car.

+1 ^ I recently purchased the ixizconcept short shifter II and installed it with the kartboy bushings. Awesome product. Well made and as already mentioned adjustable not only on throw reduction but also height of shifter knob. Customer service is really good there.
