Click here for information on the Ron Stygar short shift I added. There is also a link to an article on shortened shifters in general that is very detailed.

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 no 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?

Thanks!!!!

Spyder
