Go Fast Bits makes the shortest throw shifter I have ever felt. I love mine and the nice thing is that it is adjustable so you can change it up if you don't like a certain setting. Check it out here:csappswrx said:Thanks for all the insight. Which short shifter do you guys recommend for an 06
If you're worried about warranty then don't mod. Are you going to keep the car running on the stock tune that's been proven lethal? 98% of Wrx/STi get a Cobb ap and reflash the car. Also based on your quote "WE ONLY LIVE ONCE" you should just mod your car and don't worry. You're car could potentially have more issues on the stock tune then you would have on the stage 1 or 2 Cobb tune! You plan on any other mods besides a short throw shifter? I did see you're from Cali so you're limited on your mods. Kinda must suck to live in Cali. I talk to guys all the time from Cali and they tell me how strict it is our there.Got my 2013 WRX in Nov. 2012 and it came with a short throw shifter. The car was an "STi inspired" Base WRX awarded to the dealership for selling so many in the past quarter. (got some pretty sweet other extras too at no cost!). That said, the stock set up is sloppy and doesn't guide in the stellar way I want. I just bought the Kartboy kit w/ bushings (link below) and can't wait to install it next weekend! But, I will hold on to my stock STS just in case anything happens. We only live once!
