Well, after I changed the oil, rotated the tires, and installed new plugs on the girlfriend's car, I was able to install half of the Steeda shifter, which was the reduction bracket that goes on the shift arm under the hood. Since I had a fair bit of flashing on the cast arm, I had to do a fair bit of filing on the lever arm to get the bracket to fit properly. The removal of the battery took a little time, too.
I'll hopefully have the chance to do the rest on Friday or Saturday, but that depends on the weather.
So far, the throw reduction is pretty significant with just the bracket installed; color me impressed thus far. Can't wait to get the rest of the kit in the car, and I really can't wait for the MS3 RMM to arrive.
