2017+ Mock Reverse Adaptor

A Car Guys Garage

Regular price $110.00 Sale

Here you have it, after hours of design and testing and creating I have finally come up with this mock reverse lockout CVT adapter for all of you.

This adapter functions by simply lifting it up and shifting into gear. It also cleans up the interior nicely all while making it look like this is how it came straight from the factory. The shift boot lines up beautifully and it just accents the interior much better than the stock one.

This adapter allows for other knobs to be used on it, but why would you want someones else's knob, after all they didn't make you this adapter!

Threaded M12x1.25 with similar lockout measurements to the reverse lockout on the Subaru's, running other competitor knobs should be possible.

Threads: M12x1.25

Reverse Lockout Width: 18-22mm

This is just the adapter and DOES NOT include the knob itself, the shift boot or any trim pieces etc. Choose this option and then choose a shift knob as well. 

This is my personal design and fabricated part. With everything I make, this is all  done on a lathe and mill. Once this gets out I am sure more people will use my design and do what they want with it. I am happy to say that right now I am the only one to my knowledge and to many others that provides this type of adapter for CVT Subaru Shifters! That should say something for the SMALL GUY!!!!!


Using another companies knobs is used at your own risk. Extensions and or taller shifters over 4 inch is not recommended but you can do what you like. This design is similar to my original and all my knobs are under 4" and I have had zero issue with adapters failing or wearing out. This is your risk. Understand that. I am not saying it will break but it has not been tested for anything over 4 inch.

Please confirm that your shifter looks like the one pictured in this posting. If it doesn’t this may not fit. Contact me. I make everything personally so I can adjust design if needed!!!
