Thanks to Doug and rjb23 for experimenting with other short shifters (Doug-EVO and rjb23-7th gen). I recieved mine (7th gen about $45 on ebay) and installed. It took about 1.5 hours from start to finish. I downloaded the instructions from TWMs website and read the ones in the how to articles.

I have to say the throw is much much shorter and about 1-2 inches lower than stock. My finger are kinda close to the dash but I think it is because I only used 2 of the 4 spacers (the back 2) plus I have big hands. I will put some pics up when I put the other 2 spacers in.

Bottom line, this this rocks - great mod for $45.

batman, would it be possible for you to post pictures of how low it is and how close to the dash the shifter is in gear? Im assuming when you say its close you mean when its in 1st, 3rd, 5th gear.

This sounds like a great mod that i want to do in the future.

Wanna drive to Washington so I can see how it feels? tongue.gif

Since I posted up that information, I've been curious as to how an EVO or seventh gen shifter feels compared to my TRD quickshifter.

Yuo only have to dremle if you do the lancer one. its cheaper and comes with a knob.. but you have to dremle/sand down..

Also mine is no ware near or close to hitting my hand confused.gif

I think we owe more credit to Coomer for thinking of this. wink.gif an then me for trying.. biggrin.gif

It feels a bit stiffer than stock and I have heard people use the term "more precise" and I have to agree, definatly more precise.
any questions ? ask away...

pictures are so sexy.
so you just followed the install as if it was a twm shifter? no other mods necessary?

and it feels better/shorter throws?
how could anyone justify an extra $100 for a twm shift? or 100+ for trd?

which shifter did you buy? a no name one?

yes, just like the TWM
no other mods necessary

feels better, shorter, awesome
there are no other aftermarket ones for 6 gens like there are for the 7th gen

cheapest one I could find on ebay (they all looked the same)

I think they were talking about that piece. The GREEN ARROW

I didn't cut mine and it's smooth. I might hack it out tomorrow and see if there is a difference...

I know for the lancer one you def need top, unless you spaced the housing a lot higher. Its all really depends on how high it is sitting so if it is or not bending the shift linkage. If it shifts smothly and you dont have to use much pressure, Only little more then stock, it should be fine. Mine was a BIA in 1st 3rd an 5th.. I mean it was hard to put into gear.

OK just to be safe I cut mine and didn't feel a difference. It still feels smooth.

Doug and rjb23, did you take out the stock rubber spacers on the assembly ? I did when I put the new spacers on. That might be the problem...
