    Cobb short shifter lever?

    I got the option of the short throw shifter when i bought my wagon and Im thinking about getting the Cobb short throw lever. Does anyone else have this setup? Is there any gain from the already short throw shifter and getting the Cobb lever? Im mainly looking for more weight and a shorter throw.

    I was going to ask the pretty much the same question - does anyone run the Cobb adjustable short shifter? It sounds pretty cool on their website, wondering how it feels in the real world. Should I go Cobb, Kartboy, or another one?

    Have it and love it!
    I also have the short shifter option from the factory.
    The stick feels much less rubbery, almost rifle-bolt like (clich&#233 and it's about 2" from gear to gear! (1-2, 3-4, ect.)

    With the throw set as short as possible, the stick is about 1" lower than stock. If you go with long throws (ie. stock) the knob is almost level with the trim.

    I defiantly recommend getting this shifter to anyone who likes short throws.

    Now I just have to get the shifter bushings...

    Im running the whole stage 1 drivetrain package, easy to install and what a difference. Make sure you have a rubber or plastic hammer so you dont mess up the threads.

    for the money its a great mod.

    The Cobb adjustable shifter is probably great, because everything that Cobb makes is great (and greatly overengineered!!!) It seems a bit overkill to me, and i am prefectly happy with my kartboy ss w/ bushings... kartboy + bushings + new shift knob = Much more resposive transmission with nicer throws

    I have 06 wrb tr, Installed cobb double adjustable short throw. I love it and a few guys I know through kysubaruclub say that it is considerably shorter than an STI short throw. Very short, crisp and no trouble ingaging.
