CFM is your current best bet...

FRPP discontinued the short shifter so their's might be a tad harder to find

The Steeda and the FRPP short shifter are the same exact thing...in comparison to the CFM one it's also the same thing with the exception of the CFM one being adjustable...meaning you can move the shifter stalk up and down.

I have the FRPP/Steeda one and since i've put it on about 2 years ago I have no single complaint about it.

And no...it's not a hard install...the hardest part for me was removing the stock shifter after i stripped one of the old screws.
