Just installed the Boomba Racing short throw shift kit on my 21 Forte GT. Takes the buzzing out of the nylon shifter knuckle. The new knuckle is anodized aluminum and it shifts super smooth. Puts shifter back by about an inch so my arm rest is much more usable. 270 gram delrin knob is a great weight and makes shift engagements much more positive feeling. Definitely recommend!!

I have the same short shifter in my FE. It’s probably still the best mod I’ve done to the car. It makes it feel so much better to drive.

Also, the SXTH Element shifter end link solid bushing kit makes it even better - shifts feel even more crisp and clicky with it. I just put them in mine - certainly makes a difference. Something to consider, especially if you plan have the intake out to do a CAI

Definitely doing the Boomba shifter base bushings and transmission bushings. Had a distribution block I picked up from sxth for my Elantra Sport to run a boost gauge. I'll have to check them out!

I've had that shifter a while now, and I love it. I also installed the shifter base bushings. I've got the ones for the trans, but haven't gotten around to installing them yet.

Puting in the shifter base bushings now View attachment 85507
Nice! Let us know how much of a difference they make. I'd like to get them but I'm hesitant to pull the trigger because I'm unsure how much of a difference they will make.
