Ok so I spent the 30 or so minutes to install my shift bracket tonight. I've got a steeda short throw on the way as well, but for some reason it's taking a lifetime to get here. Let me be clear on something...I was skeptical of the results with a stock shifter. Thinking that it may be noticeable but chances are it'll shift stock. I'm glad I was wrong. There is still some slop in the shifter, to be expected with the stocker still being there, but the shifts are much, let me rephrase that...MUCH MUCH more direct with the bracket in there. The shifter seems to have a more definitive direction than it did 45 minutes ago lol. I'm very much looking forward to installing the sts as soon as it gets here.
