Yup, BUT ....

If you don't have a short throw shifter, then you're taking a chance when attempting to powershift ACROSS the "H" pattern.

In my car, the 1/2 and the 3/4 powershifts are fairly straightforward.

But w/o an STS, I completely avoid the 2/3 powershift so that I don't have to cross over the "h" pattern.

Just a 'lil hint!
