B&M short shift - great

Just installed a B&M short shifter - I am very happy with this unit. Easy install and also helped with the notchy 2nd gear. If you have not done this - it is worth the $250 bucks, its like driving a new car

+1 -- One of the best upgrades I've done. You reap the benefits with every shift!

basically an hour once you figure out how to remove the center console and bat wings....several well hidden fasteners

after installing a few it takes about 1/2 hour.

I was worried about it being to hard too... But it really is simple and a great shifter, and for less than $250 its a no brainer. DO IT!!
