So I just got my car back, rear spoiler, front lip, and an Evo3 SSK.

Question...is it true that you can't shift as fast? My mech said you have to wait longer to shift because the tranny doesn't have as much time to slow down....what is the point of a shorter throw if you have to wait to use it? Seems kinda retarded to me...


Next week, lowering w/ H and R cup springs and Bilstein shocks! Strut tower coming too!!

How on earth do I take pics of a short shifter? Or did you mean of the spoiler jazz?

D. your mechanic is uh let me be kind..... misinformed. The reason you have syncronizers in your tranny is so that you dont have to match revs with speed, it also means you ceertainly dont need to wait for your tranny. Besides that, all a SSK does is change the leverage ratio... which means the lever moves a shorter distance but at a higher amount of force required due to the lower leverage afforded by the changed pivot position. if you timed your fastes shift before and aftewr the difference in total shift time would likely be a few milliseconds. thus given the rotational inertia of the tranny components, i wold go so far as to say that the differences in rotational speed of the gearshafts in your tranny between the SSK and the stock are as close to negligable as you can get. in otherowrds your mechanic be talking out his ass.....

Well, he was telling me to shift slow at first....maybe he meant to get used to it. But he had a point, he said since I can shift 10x faster now, my tranny doesn't have as much time to slow down in comparison to my engine.

When you get a short shifter, it will in no way take longer to change gear. What will happen is that you'll end up shifting into gear faster than you can engauge the clutch. Which is fine, you'll still be able to shift quicker. I don't understand what your mechanic was talking about.
