This week on Money Pit, we’re replacing the 26 year old oem shifter with a Short Shifter. Along the way we’ll take a look at how short shifters actually make shifts shorter and we’ll see if it’s a worthy mod.
I’m also going to start including links to all the stuff that we use on the show for anyone that wants to check them out!
Link to the short shifter kit:

Doesn't a short shifter feel heavier than stock?

Dude, you changed where the heat shielding schold be. I don't know, but i think that the heat will come off the transmission and damage the shift boot, and it needs to be mounted below the shift boot to prevent that.

If your rev hang is kind of high, won’t this have minimal impact? Asking because i think I’d like to put a short throw kit in my 2006 Impreza (na) but I’m usually done shifting and waiting for revs to drop before i let clutch out anyways. I just don’t feel like the shifting itself is the limiting factor.

The guy that put a short shifter on my WRX was a fucking idiot. Had to take that shit back to factory to get it to shift correctly. No fucking clue how he jacked it up.

What about a hearse shift? Not sure if that is the correct name but it's the one where it basically just shifts by going straight back and up to downshift? Maybe you could help us understand what double clutching is.
