Also, same question with the counter weight removed and bushing on the shift linkage. I have the CFM short throw in the car and do like it; much better feel than the factory shifter. It definetly has a kind of "gate" feel to it going through the gears.

By the sounds of all these recent purchases, sounds like SVTF's are on another wave. I imagine the nicest ones were kept 7-8 years by the original owners, maybe more. How many owners on your '04? I'm third owner on my '03.
And how do you like this SVTF compared to your '03 Cobra?
Well I still have my 93 Cobra. There's really no comparison. They are completely different animals.
As for the RP fluid I'm doing that tonight as it came in the mail today.
The counter weight removal helped with the lack of input from the shifter. It did make it notchier but in a good way. I'm hoping the RP fluid will help with the notchiness. It works great in my Cobra. Also I highly recomend replacing your white bushing.
I'm the third owner of my car and the previous owners did great job keeping it mint.
