Re: short shifter???

there were two differant ones, PSPEC and the JTC customs. but PSPEC went out of business. you might be able to find a used one. JTC is amazing quality as well. besides those two choices, EVERYTHING else is just an adapter

Re: short shifter???

i just installed that one in my 5th gen lude about a month ago, very good quality when u actually hold it, shifts very smoothly. and took me about 20 minutes to install.only thing when u do this, you need to cut off about an inch off the plastic plate thats held on by 4 bolts, depending on how you want to adjust the throw and height

Re: short shifter???

Installing a short shifter with out first installing a lower mass fly wheel first ,does not make sense because one can't take advantage of the faster shift the short shifter affords if he has to wait for the revs to drop to an appropriate shift rpm. Also if your up shifting fast in a drag type situation, you will greatly increase the wear on the clutch and put more stress on your engines and transmission bearings as the rpms of the clutch disk and the fly wheel in the short shifter type car are forced to sync with each other immediately after releasing the clutch after each shift because the rpm difference between the fly wheel and the transmission will be greater as a result of a faster shift compared to a stock configuration.This is another example of how after changing a part one has to look at how other parts along the drive train are effected when trying to re-engineer your stock drive train.

Re: short shifter???

holy run on sentence! you really do love talking out of your ass, don't you? just because you have a short throw, doesn't mean you have to physically shift faster. all it does it decrease the distance that your hand moves, that in turn makes the shift itself shorter. short shifters have nothing to do with flywheels or anything of that nature

Re: short shifter???

Get the JTC short shifter! My car was the test car used in making it and it's a quality part! It's also the only true short shifter available

how much more misinformation are you going to give. im really surpised you have positive rep for all the garbage you spit on the boards. you really should just stick to copying and pasting other peoples CORRECT info. obviously, you DON'T KNOW SQUAT about cars, period.

OP, like everyone else has told you, get a JTC short shifter, dont worry about your clutch or tranny, the throw of your shifter has absolutly no effect on them....if anything the only damage that could be caused is by you, just dont go banging through gears...


robert taylor, this for you.
