GFB's Short Shift kit (part number 4003) is like no other until you feel the action of one for yourself, you won t believe the difference!
Why did we bother to make a short shift kit, when there are so many other brands available? Because there was room for improvement!
Shift throw is adjustable up to a 20% reduction over standard, which is about the same as Subaru's own optional shift kit, but at a fraction of the cost. If 20% is not enough throw reduction for your taste, you can always add the 4202 kit, which allows the throw to reduced even further, to about 40%, which equates to about 50mm (1.95") from 3rd to 4th gear - a larger reduction than is possible with any other shifter on the market, all whilst retaining the stock gearstick height!
We've also made the installation easier than other brands by including a unique pin removal tool for the pesky little split pin holding the reverse lock-out cable - once you install it, you'll know why little details like this make such a big difference!
Our products are manufactured in Australia and the company is accredited to ISO 9001, which ensures our products meet stringent quality requirements at all stages of manufacture.

STi 6-Speed Short Shift - Basic Kit
4003-image-1New from GFB is the STi 6-speed Short Shift Basic Kit (part # 4003), 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!
4003-image-2As 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)!
