    For those of you who want to disable Hill assist,it can be done in an STI but not in a WRX.The instructions are in the manual.

    To activate/deactivate the Hill start assist system (STI only***)

    CAUTION
    While the Hill start assist system is deactivated, when starting on an uphill grade, braking power is not maintained if the brake pedal is released. Start on an uphill grade by using the parking brake. You can activate/deactivate the Hill start assist system according to the following procedure.


    ! To deactivate
    1. Stop your vehicle in a flat and safe place and apply the parking brake.
    2. Turn off the engine.
    3. Restart the engine.
    4. Confirm the following items.
    . The ABS warning light turns off.
    . The Vehicle Dynamics Control OFF indicator light turns off.
    . The Brake system warning light illuminates.
    5. Press the Vehicle Dynamics Control mode switch and hold it until the Vehicle Dynamics Control OFF indicator light turns off. The Vehicle Dynamics Control OFF indicator light will illuminate in green, change to yellow, remain illuminated in yellow for several seconds and then turn off.
    6. Within 5 seconds after the Vehicle Dynamics Control OFF indicator light turns off, release the Vehicle Dynamics Control mode switch.
    7. Within 2 seconds after releasing the Vehicle Dynamics Control mode switch, press the Vehicle Dynamics Control mode switch once again. Then the Hill start assist OFF indicator light illuminates.
    8. Turn off the engine.
    9. Restart the engine. While the Hill start assist system is deactivated, the Hill start assist OFF indicator light illuminates continuously.


    ! To activate
    When the procedure to deactivate the Hill start assist system is performed again, the system is activated. When the Hill start assist system is activated, the Hill start assist OFF indicator light turns off.

    It is advisable to change the bushings along with the shifter to improve overall shifting feel.

    The entire kit with the kartboy shifter can be found here TiC 08 Impreza Super Shifter Set

    It is a pretty straight forward install.



    Not included in the video is the install of the linkage bushings.

    The instructions for the bushing install can be found on this sticky by EJ257.(Thank you Matt).The install instructions are for earlier models but they are the same for all 08+ as well.Also all bushing install can be found on this same sticky.

    This is a diagram of what you will be installing



    A: Shift Linkage Bushings
    B: Short Throw Shifter
    C: Pivot Bushings
    D: Front Shifter Stay Bushing
    E: Rear Shifter Stay Bushing



    Thank you sjcurtis & BlueAngelWrx for the video.

    He answers the question in the comment section of the video "Kregan Auto parts"
