They all use the same transmission. The shift cable and linkage is the same. Both the 14-current Mirage have the same P,R,N,D,L positions. The DS mode on the 17+ is just an electric switch on the shifter inside the car, it doesn't physically shift anything on the transmission. It's not needed or missed on the earlier models imo. I don't race car my car but when I do I just stuff it in B or L or whatever it is..
I considered sticking a 17 shifter in my 14 but there are a lot of wiring changes between 14,15 and 17. The gains aren't worth the effort to me, even if it was just plug and play..
15-17 and newer are the same, the big questions was whether a newer cvt would fit an early 14' model. If you look up part numbers on a mitsu parts site they list the early 14' as having a different part number altogether. I took a gamble and tried a 17 and it worked. I already knew the 15 and newer were interchangeable.
