08+ STi shifter info:
Measurements of the arms / control rods - how do these compare to Spec B?
Upper arm, eye-to center of trans mount bolt
Lower arm, shifter socket center to trans mount center
Understand that this is a household tape measure, so measurements may be off by a 16th either way. I also measured a brand new 2012 STi shifter and got the same measurements. And yes, this shifter was in a fire.
