The issue with the VW shift tube is the VW Shift Bush. The OD of the shift tub must stay the same which prohibits the welding of anything to it which increased the OD of it. So the kit included a machined plug which is welded into the rod and linished down to keep the OD the same. Once the rod is back in the tunnel the threaded centre is placed in it which has the Subaru compatible Boss on it. This achieves two things. Firstly it works well and 2ndly it allows you to adjust the length of the shift to get the best shift possible should you have not measured your tube correctly. Adjustment is about 30mm which in a world of shift tolerance in the mm range is a heap.
I am working up the release version of this with fitting instructions at the moment. The kit price will be confirmed once I have the quote back from Subaru on the shift bushes .... that right I retained the Subaru Shift bush as some crazy little japanese guy spent a lot of time designing that sucker to work well without vibrations etc.
These will be released with the rest of the parts to do the conversion
