No I didnt dremel anythign, tho I suppose that would have worked...
If you look on that picture, theres two bolt lookin things coming off each side of the of the shaft (think frankenstein). Take those screws out, and the black assembly thats further down and attached with those long skinny pieces comes off.
I noticed the difference, but it wasnt that big of a change. But coupled with a new shift knob and its definately more fun to drive [thumb]
I managed to get mine so the reverse lockout was stuck in the upwards position. It makes it easier to grip also. I can't remember exactly how I did it..but I know I unscrewed the two screws at the top and then put the rubber piece from the inside of the part where you screw the shiftknob down so that it would stay stuck up there. A little creativity and it works like a charm! I love the steeda STS. It makes shifts way faster without compromising the arm position. It's great!
I have an 06 and the TSeeda. Yes it is as easy to install as everybody sasy, and you don't NEED to modify it. The only modification if you will would to replace the black plastic thing inside the head with a spring so the shift knob can move up and down when putting it is reverse. It isn't necessary, but I would kinda suggest it.
