This is a wonderful improvement over the OEM part as it removes nearly all free play in the shifter and provides a tight, well engineered feel. The reduced shifting distance claimed at 40% is less noticable, but there.
I am impressed by those stating a 10 minute install.... it took me nearly 2 hours to free the OEM shifter from the transmission. One word of caution, significant torquing is needed during installation. I was afraid to over torque and possible strip the threads... bad decision. Three days after installation, the shifter disconnected from the transmission losing the linkage while driving. Not fun. The shifter needed to be re-seated and torqued. No problems since.
Overall, a great product that provides a significant improvement and added driving pleasure.
