Installed Steeda Short Throw

I installed the Steeda short throw in my '08 over the weekend. Nice looking piece and fit in the car easily. Although they use a plating on the actual shifter and they don't compensate for it when they machine the thread, so there own knob wouldn't even fit on it, meanwhile it screwed right on the stock thread. Run die down the thread quick and it cleans it right up! Not a big problem but as a mechanical/manufacturing engineer it's a little disapointing as it's somewhat common practice to compensate for coatings when machining.

As for function, the throws are super short! And I love the short stick. Overall i'm very pleased!
