If you are using a torque wrench I would suggest using no more than 7lb to tighten the plugs.

you can do some electrical work for cheap if you know how to do it yourself (my wig-wag lights and ign setup were just a few relays and some wire)
How do you make your own short throw? Cut it?

Yep, cut the shifter and rethread it. Then adjust the rod for the shifter up higher for shorter throws.

How do you adjust it. Take apart the black box?

What do you mean black box ? You pull up on the shifter boot (towards the front of the car at the part closest to the cup holders) and it's a rod the goes towards the front of the car, it sits about halfway up the shifter stalk. There's a phillips screw you loosen and just pull up on the shifter rod.

not if you have power tools to cut it. removing from the car is fairly quick and painless. just have to be carefull cutting it and threading it. oh, and you'll also have to trim the plastic tube on the underside of the shift boot as well.
