Shifter Question

Today I was just playing around with my car and took out my center console. Between my the top of my shifter and the bottom plastic plastic thing is this blue piece of medal with DC Sports on the side. It doesn't look like it does anything, so does anyone know what it is.

are the shifter cables attached directly to it?
if so, its a short shifter adaptor, which are pieces of junk. i'd advice you to throw that thing in the garbage.

Yeah, one of the shift links is connected to it.

It isn't exactly like yours because mine is raised off the plastic base a little. That's why I don't think it is a short shifter, it doesn't look like the shifter is any shorter.

thats because its not a TRUE short shifter. thats why i said a short shift ADAPTER .


trust me, its a short shift adapter, and could never even compare to a true short shifter.

At least now I know it's a piece of **** on there instead of just thinking it was.

I fitted a Neuspeed one to a mate's car a little while ago, and thought it was fantastic! 10/10 mod considering the cost (not much), the result (nice shift, shorter throw), and the fact that there's no true short shifter on the market for a 5g.

Def an easy install too, well worth the money in my opinion!
