First post here, I’ve looked all over and have not found a definite answer. Is it possible (worth it) to put a shifter stop on a 2018 sport? I have a decent amount of play in the gears and would like to have a more solid feel. Has anyone installed one?
My initial search brought me to this: Perrin Shifter Stop
No idea about the use case is necessary or if it applies to our cars (my memory tells me that the 5 speed Imprezas use a rod connection to the transmission vs. the 6 speed’s cable connection)
But I guess if it’s an issue you want to try, can’t hurt to check under the leather boot before ordering to confirm the setup is the same as the 6 speeds.
To be honest I have a 17 and the shifter ( manual ) is extremely tight ….. In the “old” days (2003) there was a rubber ring/gasket from below that was swapped when the shifter became loose/soft and also helped get things back to center and enter the correct gear ….. probably they are much more refined in 2018 but just a very small thought …..
