    PERRIN Performance — — Short Shifter Adapter

    Has anyone tried this? Can't find much for reviews seems like a cool approach though. Just debating if its better then the other options out there.

    I tried it and it seemed to work well. I just couldn't get used to the short throw, so I took it off. I had a 1985 Nissan truck before my wrx and it had a ridiculously long throw so the oem one feels short enough for me lol.

    Installed this morning, took all of 30 minutes and works GREAT! I didn't even adjust to the lowest adjustment (for the shortest throw). I still have the front bushings to install when I get a chance to get under the car but so far very happy with the purchase, not bad for $76.00.

    how does the shorter shift length affect cold weather engagement into first or(gah) reverse? i realise thats a way subjective question, just wondering if it made it harder to get into gear since my 02 actually shifts into reverse fairly well. i dont want to alter my daily driving too much for a harder if not quicker shift. thanks!


    and that is a trick little part now that i look at it better. Cool!

    The benefit to this "adapter" is that it alters the throw without actually shortening the length of the shifter. It works great for me, no issues with any gears. Good luck!

    thats good to hear. i am considering this seeing as its half the price of a kartboy. and i really dont want to lower the shifter down any.
