SVTF Short Shifter - Install Pics

Got it! Works great! Nice crisp improvement in the SVTF’s shifting abilities.
I acquired mine from NorthCoast Performance (very nice folks to deal with) for $84.95 + $5.00 shipping and handling.
It’s actually the Ford Racing Performance Parts shifter, which others have noted, is the same unit as the Steeda.

With the good reviews I received for my VF Engineering Rear Mount-Install Pics thread,
I decided to put together another one for the short shifter.

It appears after reading about the trials and tribulations of others in doing the STS install,
that the removal of the stock shifter and components is the hardest part.
For this reason, the concentration of this write up will fOCUS on the removal process.
You’ll also note, I was able to do this install without having to remove the entire console,
which also appears to be a “bone of contention” with previous installers.

Here’s the FRPP (Steeda) short shifter kit.
