New from GFB is the STi 6-speed Short Shift Basic Kit, which has been designed as a more affordable alternative to STi’s own aftermarket kit.
It is derived from the popular and unique GFB STi 4002 short shifter, 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 (particularly on MY06-08 models, 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 – it really is win-win!
