    Bought the shift adapter to have 30% over the Fswerks one i had.....very tasty piece of billet. But that's besides the point of the dumb son of a bitch who decided the put and Allen head bolt to the bottom side of the adapter...talk about a large amount of Tedious piece of dog Sh$t turn by turn to get that cockwomble to go in....MOUNTUNE PLEASE CHANGE THIS. (STEPPING off soap box).

    The Allen screw has a slot in it so you can tighten it from the top once you get it started but it is a pain in the arse to start it

    Just pull out the gear selector.

    Put the car in neutral. Take out the one or two bolts. Pop off the trans cables (be very careful). Slide the gear selector out. When you put everything back in, there's a cable alignment you can do...it's somewhere around here. Just search "rodmoe shifter cable adjustment."

    A DIY preferred mod in my book.

    Started with shaping a piece of solid steel to fit the contour of the stock lever and welded it on then bored the hole were I wanted it which gave a shorter throw than any aftermarket part.
    Then cut and realigned the cable mounts so the cables aimed closer to the proper location and welded in washers to eliminate the rubber bushings. Total time was around 2 hours and cost around $1.

    One can also raise the shifter by using long coupling nuts screwed on to the tunnel floor studs then bolts through the base, I used nylon spacers between the nuts and base to firm things up a bit and left out the rubber bushings. I had to unbolt and move the sensor out of the way to raise the cable up over it, then reinstall. Total approx $5, time around 1.5 hours. (see note below)



    Now I have a taller, shorter shifter that has never failed, very precise, easy to feel exactly where it is, no missed shifts, no cables popping off, $6 and 3.5 hours invested.

    Note: At first I raised the shifter 1.25" by separating the base into two parts, made a plate to bolt them together on one end and used standoffs and longer bolts for the rest, it took several hours, cost a few bucks, did not raise it enough so I did the rest of the 2.5" total lift the the coupling nuts and bolts, then realized it could of all been done that way.

    I recommend 2" inch raise, possibly 2.25". I had to trim the boot trim piece to get it back on as the shifter base was a bit to high and it still touches it sometimes pops the trim up off the console a little. I will trim it more later or lower the base 1/4", etc...easier to trim the trim ring if possible to get enough clearance.

    My screw did NOT have a slot in it to make it into a flat head bolt. What would be great is if Mountune would tell you all of this stuff their "directions"....it was very vague. I will come over to anyone's house in the MSP/Stp. Area and do theirs with them if they want now due to this fiasco. It still is a very tasty piece of modding though....

    The FSwerks one was pretty tedious also. I put it on 25% and felt like there was no throw at all. Didn't like it. Took it off and switched it to the 15% one which was perfect. 30% would feel wayyyyyy too short for me.

    A bit late but for others to see if your short shifter part feels to short then adding a lever extension makes it longer again, why I raised my shifter base instead of using the extension I had.
    With all solid bushings my shifter is very precise and quite short in throw but 2.5" taller moved a bit forward, falls in hand perfectly for quick shifts on track, up and down.
