I’m ordering a puma speed induction hose, I’ve seen they do a short shifter aswell that goes directly under the air box so was thinking may aswell do the two at the same time etc.

My question is are they worth it do they add anything to the driving experience?

also sorry for all the threads I’m new to the st world!
Thanks,
Mark

Cheers, I’ll probably leave it for now as I have now intention on taking it on a track anytime soon. Was just thinking if they was worth it I would do it at the same time as I’m im already halfway there by changing the induction hose :)

I have a Collins short shifter on mine & it has made a huge difference to the general driveability. Mind you I had one of the infamous Focus ST Owners Club short shifters on the Mk2 so was probably spoilt as the gear throw on the Mk3 seemed massive by comparison! It was the first mod I did to the car! Makes it so much nicer to drive 'enthusiastically'.....................:whistle:

Im glad it’s not just me that thinks the fear throw is is big I thought I did something wrong 🤣 this is what I’m looking at I may have thrown some people off saying “short shifter” sorry in advance!

Be aware that these short shifters will move the diesel gearstick back 25mm in its home position. The best short shifter to buy is the 4H-tech which can be tapped to give the original position for the diesel. I went through Pumaspeed, then Mountune before getting the 4H......it's by far the best.
