2008-2014 Subaru STI Basic Short Shifter Kit by Go Fast Bits (4003)
GFB's Short Shift kits are like no other. Until you feel the action of one for yourself, you won t believe the difference!
New from GFB is the STi 6-speed Short Shift Basic Kit, which has been designed as an infinitely more affordable alternative to STi's own aftermarket shifter.
It is derived from the popular and unique GFB STi short shifter (part # GFB 4002), which consists of two main parts; the gear lever and the linkage clamp, which work together to allow shift-throw adjustment over the largest range of any shifter on the market.
The new Basic kit utilizes the adjustable gear lever from the 4002 kit, without the linkage clamp. This means the Basic kit allows shift throw adjustment, but over a smaller range. Importantly however, it is easily upgraded to the 4002 kit with the addition of the linkage clamp.
So why choose the Basic over the 4002 kit?
When using the full 4002 kit, some people find that the shorter settings are actually too extreme for their taste, as the factory shift is shorter than earlier versions), and only end up using a small amount of the shifter's range. In such cases, the Basic kit gives the same result at a lower price.If however you decide that you want to go shorter, you can always purchase the linkage clamp separately and upgrade to the full 4002 kit at a later date with part # GFB 4202
Installation of the Basic kit is all done from within the car in about 30 minutes, and is made all the easier with the inclusion of GFB's pin-press tool.
The GFB Basic kit is adjustable from the factory setting down to around 32-35mm per gate (depending on year model). Add the linkage clamp (part # GFB 4202) later and the possible throw range drops to a miniscule 20-22mm).
- Offers adjustable shift throw
- Unique linkage clamp allows shorter throw than any competitor
- Quick and easy installation from inside the car with basic tools – no need to crawl around underneath the car
