I am in the process of ordering the Kartboy short shifter and bushings. However I still am unclear about several things AFTER searching around for a while.
Car is a 2013 WRX and came with the optional OEM STi short throw shifter:
1. Can I order the normal short shifter+bushings for the 08+ WRX on the kartboy website even though I have the OEM STS? (Will it fit?) I have read somewhere on here that if you have the OEM STS the linkage is different and you need to order a thinner shifter?
2. Will I notice a big difference between OEM STi STS and Kartboy STS or should I just order the bushings?
3. Can I do the install myself with just ramps?
4. My tranny whines like crazy in 2nd gear (low RPM) even more when slowing down. Also when I take my foot off the gas the car feels jerky, almost like it's going to stall. I read that this was normal but are the symptoms more severe because of the OEM STi STS?
Any info/advice is greatly appreciated!
