This is a discussion on Hi, this has been bugging me for a while and would like someone to help me within the Interior Mods forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; I bought a 2011 subaru wrx about two years ago. My first mod was a factory SPT short throw shifter ...
I bought a 2011 subaru wrx about two years ago. My first mod was a factory SPT short throw shifter with bushings installed during my first oil change. Later on, I have bought a kartboy short shifter with bushings and had it installed with the SPT short throw shifter already installed in it. My question is, is it alright to leave it like that? or should I replace back the SPT short throw shifter with the stock version and keep the kartboy short shfiter?
I'm sorry, now I am honestly confused.
What do you mean by "stock shifter with kartboy"? Which part is the stock part and Kartboy part?
Same goes for: "than using the SPT short throw with the kartboy"
To go from a stock shifter to lets say Kartboy shifter you would have to remove the stockshifter assembly before you can install the Kartboy unit.
You said you had all 3 units there should have been a reduction of throw as you upgraded man.
I disagree. For what you pay, I feel it leaves a lot to be desired in what you get. I'd take an aftermarket lever with all four bushings and $100+ in my pocket every time.Originally Posted by efmd3
SPT plus lever and bushings is ideal, but $$Originally Posted by efmd3

The SPT linkage replacement reduces shifts by 10-15% from what I've read over the years.
The Kartboy lever reduces shifts by about 30% from what I've read over the years.
If you have both uninstalled (since you said you have both currently installed), expect to notice your shifts to get about 40% longer and taller. I'd say you will notice this.
So why the hell would you want to remove the increased performance value of these items?

so it is kind of like a synergy system so to speak? so my shift throw would be reduced by almost 55% because of both the kartboy and spt?
