I just wanted to get a few other peoples word on this. Which of you guys are running a short throw shift in your car and what brand and percentage did it reduce it. Plus how does the shift feel. I've heard really good about the B&M short shift, and there only in the low $100-$140 range, and haven't heard anything about the one in BAV Auto's book or other brands.

it's needed when you actually have real mods on the car.. orrr, maybe it's just somethin of personal preference... either way, on other cars i've owned it makes the shifts a lot nicer
