this thread has been going on for quite a while. it is just continuing to circle around in a round little circle. it goes 1. argue that this is gay. 2 then how sticks are better. 3 then how every one is hurt boo hoo. 4 then how this thread is not to make it look like a manual. 5 then we cry and start over something like that again.

One day, a little girl accidentally walks in on her mother in the bathroom. The little girl says "Mommy, what's that?" The mother replies "Oh...that's just my...little black squirrel." Having her curiosity satisified, the little girl walks up to the second bathroom on the upper floor, only to walk in on her grandmother. The little girls asks "Granny, what's that?" The grandmother says "Oh that....that's just my little gray squirrel". Confused, the little girls asks "Granny, why is your squirrel gray and mommy's squirrel black?" The grandmother replies "That's because your momma's squirrel hasn't climbed as many poles or bust as many nuts as mine has."

Nice touch to the interior. Those ATX knobs are evil clunky.

With a tune, an ATX can be one mean mother... flower!

who cares how long the shifter is as long as its there.. you got real problems when its not ....

and wats with alll the arguing... damn its still auto just with a shorter shifter... should all the atx drivers make fun of the stick drivers because they have three pedals and only 2 feet...

Come on now lets all play nice in the sandbox...

LOL this thread IS funny. I have an ATX and I think I posted in this thread before but what the hell. The shifter mod does not increase performance - period. It does make performance more convenient though. When I did mine I also removed the "catch" that stops the shifter from moving into 2nd from drive without pushing the button. I also noted that when the shifter remains in drive, the transmission shifts gears at 6000RPM whereas if you shift manually through the gears the rev limiter is set to 6500RPM so you get an "extra" 499RPM to use in each gear. Not a huge difference but you can notice the extra ease in which 2nd gear picks up if you pay attention. It is equivalent to about 3MPH extra in each gear. So, it does not INCREASE performance; it merely makes using the performance more convenient and it looks a HELL of a lot better. Morons who try to act like they have manuals should have bought a manual. I personally put mine in neutral when slowing down from about 15MPH or when sitting still because it makes braking easier. Do I try to "roll back" or whatever? NO. That looks stupid because anyone with half a brain can realize from any number of clues that you have an automatic and usually anyone you may be trying to impress is going to be smart enough to know you're just being stupid. Anyway, I recommend this mod as an essential for anyone who owns an automatic.
