No problem screammachine although all I did was write it up. I had seen it mentioned a few times and couldn't find a how-to so I made this for the benefit of those who want to do it but couldn't find the info. As I said above I have never used a "true" aftermarket short throw shifter so I honestly can't say how much they shorten throws but I was able to move the ball mount up pretty much a full inch on mine and the throws are shorter than they were. It doesn't make the throws rediculously short like on some cars but you should notice the difference. I can't immagine a Steeda or a B&M's throws to be much shorter than this anyway (at least not a $120 difference) but again, I don't know. Anyone who has used an aftermarket shifter feel free to weigh in on this.
All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.
