Question Will it be worth it?

So I have been looking and would like to get the Focus-Central race shifter. I'm just wondering if it is worth it. I will be getting the t/b later on after I get my tax returns back. So will it be worth while to get the short throw or should I look at something else. I have Intake and Catback exhasut now. Any ideas abnd feedback greatly appreciated!

It gives you a nice shifter feel, more sporty. I think it's worth it, you don't really get performance from it, mostly looks and actual shifting feel. I think it's worth it for sure.

I drove a car with a shorty and it's alot more fun of a car, if that could happen. I can't wait to get mine. If you drag you will get a LITTLE better time because of the quicker shifts.

if your focus is on performance I wouldn't get that yet. Get a few more performance upgrades, I have about every bolt-on you can get and it will be a while before I even think about getting one. If you are going for performance and looks though, get it because it sounds like you already want it.

Remember that now the FC Race Shifter doesn't come with a knob anymore.

I was lucky when I purchased mine and it included the knob.

It's definitly worth it and it's good to be rid of the reverse lock-out.
