    the sti short shifter for the 5mt, yes it's the same threads as the standard shifter.

    The STI short shifter for the 6mt, no.

    I just got the Titanium piston style knob and the threads are too big for the threads on the stock short throw shifter on my WRX. Do i have to take out the white plastic part on the stock knob to make the new one work?

    wow hmph, I don't know what to say.

    That appears to be the 5Mt short shifter, my stock & short shifter when I had my 5mt were the same thread.
