Look like unapropriate statement.

Not really...he's not saying anything is wrong with that...for all you know his Uncle Scott is probably a great person.

And if you don't know what a clutch is...then i think you have more things to worry about then a short shifter

But it's a very easy and straightforward install...don't let it intimidate you.

^^^ LOL! I'm honored. Thank you.
"Uncles" are great folks, and are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet.

And...um...we should probably keep this on topic...
But then again, I needed the laugh at the moment.

They will be hard at first, as LocTite was used to secure them.
I broke them all loose first, then turned them out in a criss-cross pattern, as you would with wheel lug nuts.
Once all the bolts are removed, carefully extract the shifter taking care not to catch the cables.
Im having trouble with the stupid screws/ Theure wanting to strip! Any Ideas!?!
