short throw shifter prices?
Posted 09 June 2004 - 08:21 AM
i would like one but not for $300. has anyone had any success with a less expensive shifter.

Throws were definately shorter, and shifting was more 'crisp'. No more rubberery feeling of the longer factory shifter.
Only down side was the are no insulators on the short shaft. It attached with the bolt thru a roller bearing assy, so you could feel the engine and tranny vibrations more thru the shift assy.
But I am pleased and would spend the $14 again......Fould it on Ebay.

took my 30 mins to put in and haven't had any problems with it.
IMO get the cheaper one. The concept of a short throw shifter and I don't see the advantage of paying more for a "name brand" shifter.

That would make the shifter shorter but not change the leverage. A short throw shifter moves the shift linkage connecting point so that it takes less travel of the shifter to change gears.
Cant you saw the one in there shorter and put a different knob on it?
It makes a huge difference in the crispness of shifting.
