        feels extremely clunky

        doesnt like to spring back to upright after its pulled out of gear, kinda just sits at either end by 1st or 5th. decent for $70 but would not buy again.

        Easy to install

        After watching the on line video it was a breeze putting this shifter together and it performs as described much smother and shorter shifting.

        You get what you pay for.

        It served me pretty well until now, a year after I bought it. The short throw is very nice compared to the original length, but make sure you Lock-Tite the side-to side adjustment screws. Mine went too tight and when trying to push it into reverse, I snapped the bottom piece of aluminum in half. Luckily I had my Vice-Grips with me to use as a temp shifter! Might as well pay a bit more and not risk this, in my opinion.

        Poor quality

        Love the product for about 2 weeks. Then the screws came loose and shifter was worthless paid money to have it professionally installed had to pay money to have my old shifter reinstalled call the American muscle and no warranty nothing they could do about it. Do not recommend anyone this product

        You get what you pay for

        Overall it's a nice shifter and good for the price. Some of the threads were a little improperly cut, and the shifter has a slight side to side rotation which I can't figure out.

      Questions & Answers (30 answers)

      5 Top Rated Questions

      are the springs and washers necessary to assembly

      • The springs included with the SR Performance Short Throw Sport Shifter are replacements for the tension spring to allow adjustment of the shifter's tension. The washers are needed for the install and will go on the bolts connecting the shifter to the transmission to evenly distribute the clamping force.

      Do I need to replace the rubber bushing that connects the shifter to the transmission?the old one fits small and I don’t know we’re to order the right one or if I even need it?

      • The SR Performance Short Throw Sport Shifter is designed to reuse the OEM shifter bushing. This will also work with any aftermarket bushings designed to work with the stock shifter.

      do you need a new seal while installing the new shifter?

      • Yes, it would be required to get a new shifter gasket or apply a bead of RTV when installing this shifter.

      will this work with the hurst competition shifter handle in a 93 5.0

      • We have not tested the SR Performance Short Throw Sport Shifter with the Hurst handle, however this shifter has a standard shift handle bolt pattern and will accept any shift handle that will fit the stock shifter.

      I just wanted a new one but mines an automatic can i still use it

      • Unfortunately this will not work with the automatic transmission. Only the manual.
