it looked pretty short already! I thought that was the picture with it already cut.I find shifters that are too short to be uncomfortable. But its a matter of preference. Looks good anyways.

Cut down shifters do not help you 'short-throw' like a real STS will. Why bother? Sorry bro, I just don't see the point. Nice shift knob though. You should meet up with some of us for Superfly Sundays car show in Akron.

Yea I know it doesent really change the throw of the shifter but I think it looks alot better. Its still fells like the same throw. But it takes more Umph to get it to the next gear because I have less leverage now. I would like to join you guys sometime. I may do that. Also i would like to get a cluster with a tach in it but I want one that is close to my mileage. I was offered one for 30 but the mileage was WAY off
