    Just bought a 2002 WRX, have a question though

    How do I find out if the car has the stock short shifter already on it. It has almost all of the other accessories minus the spoiler but I was just wondering how i would figure out if it has the short shifter on it. Thanks for your help.

    does it kinda "click" into each gear or just feels sloppy when u shift?

    if it has this little click feel to it (u wont hear it), then more than likely it is a short throw.

    Pull down the shifter boot. Is the linkage gold colored? If so then it's the STi short throw.

    It should look like this:



    I too bought a 02 WRX used and I discovered a couple months after purchase that it has the STi short throw. It was a nice surprise

    thanks for your help guys. Just checked the color of the shifter linkage and found it was gold.
