FRPP and Steeda are the same. One comes with the mounting hardware, the other needs to be swapped.

The best short shifter is the stock shifter..

Believe it or not.. I bought a shift knob that I like.. and I just saw the stock shifter short (to my prefered height).. and put the knob in..
It was a perfect job.. don't even need to worry anything about the shifting cable and stuff.. hehehehe

And of cos.. it only took me about 15 mins...

Yeah that's probanly the best short shifter because its the cheapest way...however, its not a short throw shifter. I know the steeda and frpp are the same because my frpp sts was shipped directly from the steeda warehouse with steeda packaing.

Yeah.. I did that because I read on some forum that there are some fake aftermarket short shifter.. also some aftermarket short shifter gives a lot of problem after awhile.. so I decided the best short shifter is the one that comes with the car.. heehehe

but its only a shorter handle...not a true short THROW shifter. The frpp/steeda changes the pivot point so that the actual shifter movement is shorter without reducing handle length much
