Short Shift Kits

GFBs Short Shift kits are like no other. Until you feel the action of one for yourself, you wont believe the difference!

True to our philosophy of Performance Without Compromise, GFBs Short Shift Kits are designed with a unique linkage system that means the shift throw is fully adjustable whilst retaining the stock gearstick height and requiring NO modifications to the transmission tunnel. That means you can simply bolt one on, adjust it the way you want it, and get a positive and direct race car shift feel!

Weve also made the installation as easy as possible. Our 6-speed Subaru kits include a specially designed pin removal tool for the reverse cable. Suffice to say, youll appreciate what a great touch this is when you install the kit.

GFB Subaru STi 6-Speed Short Shift Basic Kit

GFB

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 # 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 (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!As with the 4002 full kit, 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 brilliant and unique pin-press tool – when you use it you’ll know why we included it and wonder why others don’t!So how much shorter is the throw?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 and the possible throw range drops to a miniscule 20-22mm (see photos opposite – these show the factory shifter vs the GFB full kit on a 3rd to 4th gearshift)!

GFB Subaru STi 6-Speed Short Shift Kit

GFB

Following on from our popular WRX short-shift kit, we have now released a new version to suit Subaru’s 6-speed gearbox found in all late-model STi’s, from MY02 and on.As with our WRX kit, the GFB STi short shift kit includes a unique clamp arrangement that allows the shift throw to be reduced much more than by changing the gearstick alone. As you can see from the picture, the GFB clamp eliminates the need to lift the gearbox linkage higher to reduce shift throw. Instead, you simply select one of the three holes.The factory shifter in an STi has a shift throw of 40mm per gate; the GFB unit is adjustable from the factory setting, right down to a tiny 22mm per gate! To put this into perspective, the best any aftermarket shifter (that replaces only the gearstick) can hope to achieve is 30mm per gate, without modifications to the linkages or surrounding bodywork.  The photos opposite show the stock STi shifter vs the GFB shifter from 3rd to 4th gear.Installation is done completely from within the car, and is made much easier with the inclusion of a special tool for removal and installation of the reverse lock-out cable pin. Typically the installation can be completed within 20 minutes
