I'm not sure I can do either FSWerks exhaust, the stealth or race... they both seem kind of ricey to me from the videos I've seen.

I'm not sure what RMM is or how swapping the rear sway bar helps out.

Short throw shifters are cool though, although since this is my first manual vehicle besides a motorcycle, I think I'm still trying to figure out how and when to correctly shift without getting those jerking motions.
Short throw won't effect your learning curve here. That was my first mod on my mustang and it was my first stick car. You drive in traffic for 2 weeks, you'll be a pro. It comes really fast.

Ok thats good then. I still need to look up info about the RMM and sway bar. I really only get jerking motions when accelerating relatively hard, especially from 1-2. I still need to experiment with how fast to let the clutch out and when to give it gas. It seems like my issue would be more exaggerated with a short-throw, since I would be ready to accelerate in the next gear quicker, but the RPMs haven't dropped as much.

RMM (Rear Motor Mount)
Rear Sway Bar
Steeda Short Throw Shifter
I got short throw, green filter and exhaust coming in.

I would only change the short throw shifter with a steeda intake. I'm really pleased with the shifts on the stock throws. But eventually a short throw would be nice.
