    Few small question. I am new to the subie world and have loved every minute of it so far. I also own a 79 trans am so this car is my daily driver. I wanna make her fun to drive but not get to a point where something will break.. What is the best thing i could do for handling. I saw bushings, sway bars and things like that. If you were to do one which would you recommend most? Where do you guys like to shop for parts, any specific sites?

    Also what the heck does it mean to be in stage 2

    For handling... Sway bars and end links, rear diff bushings and sub frame lockdown bushings. I go through turn in concepts (turninconcepts.com) mostly, great staff and local for me. Stage 2 is generally a turbo back exhaust and tune. If you haven't done a short shifter and bushing set, I would do that as well, makes a huge difference in drivability.

    Cool thank you. All i have done is put a turbo boost gauge on my car and i do want to do other little things. I think the short shifter and bushing set will be my next purchase. Any suggestions on a brand?

    ^ yes .. all of this.

    As for brand and vendor.. turninconcepts.com has been great to me, and Kartboy products are bomb proof. You will be pleased.

    will the Kart Boy shifter allow you to use the stock shifter knob. I want to keep my car looking stock. How do you take off the shifter knob. i would guess it screws off but from the looks of the kartboy shifter it doesn't look like it has threads at the end?

    twist.. if it doesn't budge.. twist harder

    I've had a factory knob on my KB shifter for quite a while now.. Like said in another thread, even scoobie nuts cant tell the difference unless they get in the car and move the shifter.



    Its a crappy image, but thats the kb shifter with factory knob.

    I know the throw on the KB shifter is shorter, but is the shifter itself shorter? Height-wise?

    Yes, about an inch or so with the stock shift knob. With the Kartboy knob probably closer to 2 inches shorter

    ??? what? Where did you get this data? I have the kb shifter and its not anywhere near that much shorter than factory. I may have to pop mine out and compare to the factory shifter directly just to show you guys that its not much shorter. I'm using the factory knob and its MAYBE 5/8 shorter.. if that.

    another aspect to think of is that its angled backward toward the driver a bit.. this makes up for any lack in over all height.

    So why would it be beneficial to get the KB hort shifter if it doesn't even shorten the throw?

    the throw can be shorter by raising the pivot point. that would allow the overall height remain the same
