Well, I'm heading home from work now... FedEx delivered my STS today. After I get her on this weekend I'll be happy to give my feedback

Again, thanks Brandon for all the help!

Your going to love it, after driving it for a while you wont believe that you ever drove it with the longer through. This is the way is should have come from the factory.

I'm thinking about possibly doing it in two stages... Bracket tomorrow and tri-ax on Sat. Be able to see the difference

You will notice the largest gains with the braket. While testing the shifter I had the tri ax part in for a few months then the braket was installed.

If you use it on the shorts throw you will need to do some trimming, not too bad though




To install the bracket you have to pop of the linkage here


And this is what it looks like with the bracket on


More pics are available apon request
