ok so ive searched, but i got the version 1.0 kartboy kustoms short shifter with the plastic ball on the bottom thats pined on.

now i read that i can just knock out the pin and use the plastic ball off my stock shifter to make it stay in. but my main problem is getting the stock one out. i have the consol out and the linkage unbolted but it wont pop out of the socket. i even turned it 180degrees around and tryed pushing it into 4th gear per say and still nothing.

Thanks for any help

cool got it out, swapped over the lower ball and then notice after i pop it back in that it wont work with my stock linkage.

so how long does it take to swap in the linkage from a 99 impreza. i have it sitting on the bench and planning on doing it after work tonight on our lift. also it should go right in right? or will i have to make some custom stuff to get it to work?

Thanks,
Shean

never mind, i was going to cut my linkage end off and make something but i ended up just dropping the tranny down, pulling the tranny mount all the way off and knocking out the pins and changing over the linkage on the tranny it self.

i LOVE HOW IT IS NOW nice and crisp and much shorter throws. i will eventually upgrade the shifter bushings in a few months as well as the tranny mounts by TiC.
