This short shift lever is built for performance without compromising comfort. It installs easily, replacing the OEM shift lever on your Subaru WRX with no modifications required to the surrounding console. The re-engineered lever reduces shift travel by 30%, giving you a shorter and crisper shift experience as you row through the gears. The shifter height is shorter by almost 2 inches and is also positioned closer to the driver by half an inch, putting the shift knob in a much more comfortable position, all while retaining full functionality of the reverse lockout.
Our shifter is compatible with Perrin shift stop as well as the factory STI short throw shifter!
The shifter and collar itself is designed & manufactured in Boomba's facility, right here in the U.S. and all mounting hardware are included. All shift levers are precision CNC machined black oxide billet steel and high quality delrin for maximum strength and durability. A definite mod for daily drivers as well as autocross and road racing enthusiast!

Exactly as advertised. This shifter eliminates side to side slop and the gears are very easy to row now. I paired with a shift plate as well and am very pleased with it. the only con is that my shift boot is getting stuck between the shifter and my Perrin shift stopper now because of the extra slack due to the lowered shifter height.
The installation was not easy to be completely honest but it is soooo worth it! The difference it night and day from stock. The short throw shifter paired with a shifter stop is so good! There are some good videos on YouTube that we’re very helpful (SubiSpeed, Theshaddix, Ryan’s Random Ridez). The issues I had was putting the shifter assembly back together. The videos show how to take it apart but not how to put it back together. I recommend taking a lot of pictures of how it is before taking it apart. This is a must have mod, I can’t believe I didn’t do this sooner.
It took a while to install, but it was worth it. Best car part I’ve bought for my car thus far. Shifter feels a lot more smooth and driving is more enjoyable.
Great product. Easy install. Product is great and furthermore Boomba has great customer service!
High quality short shifter, Made a world of a difference in my 2015+ WRX, the dull grinding sound going to third went away, shift’s VERY nice now, so glad i spent the time for the tesious install. Dont lithium grease the reverse lockout, it’s all sticky now. Use a lighter grease or spray.
Fantastic product, feels so much better now! Paired it with the Perrin shifter stop and it's just Fantastic! Only issue I had was the installation instructions on the website didn't have instructions, and some instruction for how to put the side shifter back together would have been fantastic! Other than that the install was pretty smooth, maybe 2-2 1/2 hours tops. I would absolutely recommend thid to anyone considering it.
I got this along with the shifter plate and a perrin bushing. The shifts are crazy short and that makes the car that much more enjoyable to drive. Great upgrade. I had everything installed by subaru which ran me an additional $250. A lot of people were saying the install was a pain in the ass so I think it was worth the additional cost.
I ordered the Boomba Short Shifter and seconds later i realized there was a 10% discount. So after i contacted them Mike immediately refunded the amount and had told me he also included a bottle opener, beanie and stickers. I dont know if that was already included but it made the experience even better. My short shifter came in I havent installed it yet but cant wait. These guys have great customer service and great products. Definitely will buy from again. Thanks Guys!!!
This short shifter is really well made (not to mention the only one i've found for the 2015 WRX). It's a bit of a pain to install (I blame Subaru for that) but with a little bit of patience you will get it and let me tell you, its well worth it. Each shift is smooth and crisp, and significantly shorter than stock. I recommend getting an aftermarket shift knob for it because if you tighten the stock shift knob too much the shift pattern guide will pop off. Thank you Boomba Racing for this product!
