Hey! I thought I recognized this 244... I PM’d you a few days ago on Instagram about your seats. Looking good!

Is that a Craving Boost short shifter?

I think the seats are from a 2004 WRX.

This is the shifter: https://www.aliexpress.com/i/32810106598.html

How long have you had the shifter installed and what is your opinion of it? Quality? $60 is a great deal.

Bump. How's it been? The cam, the compression, etc.. I never heard a review after you got the RSI cam in.

Great cam. Power all the way to redline. At idle sounds like a Harley. Had a guy ask if I had a 350 under the hood haha.

How do you like the shifter? Can you tell a difference?

I had the sam shifter from Sweden in my car and had to get rid of it because it was so noisy while driving from vibration. My shifter had steel split bushing between the aluminum and steel shafts. There needs to be rubber insulator between the two materials.

Same, but with the Chinese shifter.
A delrin center section (reverse lockout) would be a nice upgrade on one of those.

Yes, the shifter is extremely tight and significantly shorter. Mind you there is something special about the stock M46/7 shift throws being about 4 feet long.

Only issue I have is the shift knob rattles at certain RPMs but the car is so loud I hardly notice.

I'm off doing army stuff right now, but when I get home I'm re-gearing to 4.10, installing a Corbeau Forza seat via Kaplhenke V3 side mounts, and a Momo Mod 07 wheel.
