    Changing shift knobs

    I just got a Greddy counterweight knob and I'm replacing the STi titanium knob I have now. Is there a way to get white plastic thing that is holding up the boot out of the STi knob and put it in the Greddy knob?

    I do not believe so. I have the GREX Trust shift knob and I had to get creative as far as looks go. Good luck.

    I let the the boot rest on the stopper that is right below the threads. I used a glossy thick rubber tubing and cut it to the length of where the knob stops and placed it there to cover the threads. Since mine is a round knob it actually looks really nice.

    Sure, but it will probably be late tonight or tomorrow before I can take it and post it. I have an intercooler, gauge pod, and spark plugs to install tonight, and a bunch of switches to wire. So I can snap one while I'm in there. DynoComp Pro Tune in the morning.

    Nice I screwed my knob all the way down and was able to pull the boot up to the tapered end of the knob. It's a lot shorter than the STi knob i was using, but it's much easier to grab.
