2008+ Focus Steeda Short Throw Shifter!

So I decided to try out the Steeda Short Throw Shifter, and i must say, it is not a bad product. The gears are tighter, and closer together.. But not Extremely tight. It took me all of 20 minutes to install too! Here are some pictures of before and after...

Yeah its a great product and definitely makes the car a lot more fun with the short shift. You were right about the install time, it did not take much more than 20 minutes to install.

I could not be happier with the product or the results.

May I ask where you found instructions to install in an 08+? I'm looking to buy this STS next week.

I wish someone made an STS that actually shortened the throws without making the thing sit on the console. The shifter should be close to the wheel, not on the floor.

Also, for anyone considering one; a poly dogbone mount really compliments the short throw. Tightens things up nicely on the shifts
