Agree with SVT4ME....WD40 has excellent instructions, but some SVT's (my '04 for one) have a one-piece console, so the supplied instructions are a good supplement. But who's complaining? The finished product is THE BEST bang for the buck mod available.

From start to finish here:

I scanned the picture in from a Ford brochure I picked up at an auto show, then I resized it in Photoshop to a very small size for signature use, then I hosted the picture on my Photobucket account ( it's free, http://www.photobucket.com or http://www.imageshack.us/ ) and then linked to that file in my signature; where you can enter text, you just enter the URL of the image.

Update - those of you that go for the Phil Wood grease, you will NOT be disappointed at all! I've had mine in some REALLY cool weather recently - was below zero for a few days - and, I won't lie, the STS did get a tiny bit stiffer but it was negligible at best. The Phil Wood stuff is really great in the cold weather and for sure it will be fine in the heat of summer because I've used it in bikes for years.

Anyway, just an update here....

Thanks for the update on the Phil Wood.
Mine has been rather "stiff" at first in these double digit below 0F temps for over a week now.
It's at 23 right now. Feels like a heat wave.

WD-40 You did a nice job in detailing the install of the short shifter . This is probably going to be my first after-market. ( and could also be my only one ,as I think the stock SVTF , is close to perfect, except for the shifter ). Does the short shifter void the warranty on the power-train.?

Thanks!

As long as it can't be shown to be the cause of whatever warranty claim you have.
With that said, when I had the Clutch TSB done, the STS was installed when I took it to the Dealer.
No problem.
