Installation Manual 10087ST 6 Speed



In 2008, Subaru made changes to their shifter and linkage, but some modifications to this shifter model can be made for use in the new models.

Notable changes:

  • Base Bolt Pattern.
  • Shifter Linkage Length is longer.
  • Console shifter opening is smaller.
  • Changes in other stock parts, or hardware.


Here are some notes from a customer that installed the shifter into a newer WRX 5speed.

New holes need to be drilled in the baseplate, you only need to drill two new holes. For this you should keep the existing bottom two holes and drill new top holes(this keeps the stock rubber “nubs” aligned. For this generation you need to drill out the existing bottom and new holes to fit the stock mounting bolts with are approximately 5/16”/8mm. 

For the 2011-2014 wrx the rubber plate that acts as the passthrough for the transmission linkage needs a few modifications. To begin there are 4 rubber “nubs” that act as guide pins for the stock mounting plate, the two side “nubs” need to be removed. The remaining top and bottom “nubs” help to allign the CAE baseplate. 
Also for this generation WRX(wrx only as far as I know) there is a pertrussion in the top right croner of the rubber plate, the CAE baseplate will NOT fit unless this purtrussion pushed in on itself so it purtrudes toward the ground. 

Next in the included parts for the shifter there are new mounting bolts and spacers. For the 2011-2014 WRX(wrx only as far as I know) These bolts and spacers WILL NOT fit. You can just reuse the stock bolts and do not need new spacers although I’m sure you could find appropriately sized washers to act and spacers. 

This part is wrx specific. For the wrx 5-speed transmissions there is no reverse lock out or corresponding linkage so the supplied small block off plate is not used.  

The 2011-2014 Wrx and Sti have the same(dimensionally) shifter bezel. This piece needs to be cut at the back to allow space for the shifter to move. The cut needs to be approximately 1” back and 1” both left and right of the center(I will supply a picture to help this discription make sense). A similar cut needs to be made in the same place to the plastic underneath the shifter bezel. 

The most vital component to making this shifter work for the 2011-2014 WRX(wrx only as far as I know) is a new adapter. Dimensionally the adapter I had machined is exactly the same in all measurement except overall length. The only change that needs to be made to your current adapter design is that the overall length needs to be 110 mm. This is about 2” longer than the original adapter.(I will supply drawings and pictures). 


We will be working with CAE to develop an adaptor as described above, or you may use this information along with the shifter linkage connections to machine your own. The 5speed and 6speed gearbox input shafts use a different roll-pin angle, so parts made for one are not compatible with the other.
