Here are some pictures of my shortened shifter. I raised the cable mount up approx 1 inch from where it was stock. Then Cut the shaft down 2 1/2 inches, rethreaded it, and put it all back together. Also I took the shift pattern insert out and sandblasted it and painted it with 3 coats of black and three coats of clear coat.
On my focus, the Pivot beneth the shifter does nothing, so I could not see spending over 100 dollars for something that is only slightly better than the setup I have now.
