B&M Short Shift Kit shifting effort

Some time ago I installed a B&M Short Shift kit in my '00 S. At the time I was surprised by the high shifting force but figured I would get used to it. It's now been a while and I'm still not satisfied with the force required to shift. Others have reported good results with the B&M so I'm wondering if I'm just a wimp or if perhaps I did something wrong during the installation (all the gears engage just fine, but maybe there is something else wrong). Is there someone in the bay area who has a B&M kit installed in the car willing to let me feel the shifting force in their car? I'm in Fremont, but anywhere in the south bay is good for me.


p.s. I have experience with short shift kits, having had them in other cars, so I realize the shifing force will be higher, but it seems too high with the B&M.

p.p.s. I realize that with the B&M you don't want to torque the bits holding the bearings too much, I didn't do that.
