Yeah ZZP is a good company, quality parts and they take good care of their customers.

Have you looked into some of the other "cheaper" mods? The shifter bushings from DDMworks are a good buy. Also their "coil cover" is a cool little piece that's inexpensive. I've got both.

That's pretty cool!

I saw their Facebook post a while back saying that they were looking for someone.

Also on that note. At a 40k range for an RS your now right into the middle of the cost of a mustang. That would be to conflicting for sales of either car.

What difference do you notice with the bushings?

That's cool that they have them too. I keep forgetting, I bought my stuff when ZZP was juuust really getting into the game.

The bushings just stiffened up the shifter a bit. I could see them making a much bigger difference in the long run over the stock bushings. They take only minutes to install.

On a brand new car you can feel the difference a bit but it's not life changing, lol.
