    Welcome! "Stage 1" is generally considered to be just a tune, or a tune with an intake. Check out the link in rage's sig and the link in mine for good reading on modding these cars.

    Welcome from NJ!

    Killer color. Big fan of the PBP. Is top 3 in terms of favorite colors on the '11+ hatches, for me.

    I heard from a friend that installing a shirt shifter on the new wrx's can cause gear grinding

    lolwut.

    Transmission gears are in constant mesh... the shifter has NOTHING to do with gear engagement, and I fail to see how the fulcrum of the shifter would have any effect on synchro engagement either. Your friend sounds like he/she is grasping at straws in attempt to sound like he/she has some basic knowledge about cars.

    You'll be fine. Plenty of people on here have short shifters. Short shifter is even a factory option. Its ok to install if you want to.
