In general, any shortening of the shifter is going to increase the amount of effort required...but I have gotten quite used to it and fully appreciate the performance the short throw gives.
4/'98 2.8l Drk Grn/Beige/Black - 17" - sport bun warmers - Wood steering wheel, brake handle and trim - Dinan Stage 2 Software, Strut Brace, and Air Intake - Custom Borla Exhaust with Intercooler Tips - Eibach Sway Bars - BavAuto SS Brake Lines - Ron Stygar short Shift - LeatherZ stuff - starry night paint detailing on front - yada, yada, yada - and power top (real roadsters don't have no fuggin' power top)
I am thinking about changing out my existing shifter for a short throw type. I have two questions.
1. My tranny shifts are notchy and when cold requires a fair amount strength to shift. Does this effect become worse with a short throw shifter?
2. Recommendations for a high quality shifter?
