Short Shifter

Does anyone here have this short shifter?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/OBX-S...74734683QQrdZ1

It says how much the throw is reduced but what about the height?

Re: Short Shifter

The height should be lower as well. Most every one I have seen is lower.

Re: Short Shifter

Mine is about a half inch shorter top to bottom but that's not what's important here, it's how much shorter the throw is. Mine does not throw anywhere near as far back as the stock shifter did. I would say it cut at least an inch out of the back throw for sure.

Re: Short Shifter

It's not going to be 2" shorter top to bottom. Get a shorter shift knob. Do you wan't me to take a pic of mine for you? Mine is the B&M as well.

Re: Short Shifter

I'll snap one tommorow when I get home from work. I get off at 8pm so remind me. Might be able to do it before I go in.
