The ratchet shifter is more of a novelty item. It will in no way help your performance, the stock shifter shifts way fast. The tuner will make the shifts a lot more firm and quick.

I purchased this item myself, more for the look. i hated the stock shifter, looks soo lame, this definitely made me enjoy driving my car a lot more than i did.

Getting the shifter aligned with the transmission cable was a pain, but i think this has to do with the cable being worn, I got it as close as i can, for the most part it works perfectly, every once in a while it doesnt push/pull the cable far enough when im in second and going to drive.

Next thing is, unless you hit the perfect shift point, you will usually have a half second or second wait before you actually shift.. after getting my tuner it helped this a little, but really learning how to make the car shift when you want is going to take some time learning the transmission.
