    i actually like my factory sts. its worlds better than the wrx i test drove without one....although it was port installed so i didnt pay $600 for it. the only reason i have one is because it came with it actually. id go aftermarket(kartboy) for 1/3 the price if i was in this situation

    Comfort and human performance. I actually miss 3rd every once in a while just because of how long the throws are =/

    You end up shifting "from the wrist" instead of "rowing"...
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    I actually used to miss 3rd also with the factory setup. Since installing the kartboy sts and bushings I haven't had any problems at all. Plus install is super easy when the exhaust is off, FYI.

    I have the factory STS. Still not the best. Could I go with an aftermarket without changing the bushings?

    The bushings are the majority of the upgrade. You can use both the factory STS along with an aftermarket lever, however. It would be silly not to upgrade the bushings, in my opinion.

    Completely agree, the bushings are what make this mod awesome.
