i found some short shifters on ebay for 12.99 (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1868048023). i got mine friday and installed it saturday. the throw is noticably shorter than the stock (i should have measured it but forgot), but it keeps the stock height, which is too tall for me, so im chopping the threads off and using a knob with setscrews. but for $13 bucks its a good deal. no mods were needed but did need to use a different bolt to attach it to the bottom end of the shifter to that bar that connects to the tranny(forgot what its called), luckly i had one laying around that fit perfectly. all in all im very happy with it.
