If you can find a name brand on ebay thats fine, but if its one of the generic ones that has 4 blue bushings pictured stay the hell away.

^^ Yes, these are garbage. I just installed a Steeda on my autox car, replacing one of the crap ebay ones.

I have a Steeda. Works great. Can't go wrong for $120.

Just buy the Steeda or CFM units and be done with it.

I have that one and have had it since 2006, been doing great for me. very solid, knob has good weight and it looks great. it's just a b&m knockoff but I'd compare it to a name brand any day.

I've got the Steeda short throw shift and I'm very happy with it. They redesigned the entire piece, not just shorten the length. It's quick, has a nice solid feel and almost finds 3rd gear for you.

You got a good one then lol. Quality seems to be hit or miss and mine was bad enough that I wouldnt want to see someone else make the same mistake

how hard is one of these to install? been thinking about one for my 05.
20 minutes tops. I know the Steeda comes with good instructions and I'm sure there is how-to on the forum.
