Umm not sure what to say here but short throw shifter are pretty damn useful, it has nothing to do with the skill to drive a manual either, it is a worthwhile mod. granted I wouldn;t necessarily recommend it be the first mod you make.Tavel said:short throws are for pussies. spend your money on things that will actually help your car. there's no need for short throw if you have skill enough to drive a manual.
i would reccomend replacing the exaust first...the stock exaust is very limiting, but don you dare go getting a folgers muffler!!! 2" pipe is the max size for your engine, dont go above that. (for reasons i dont know, but its true).
and i would also get some stiffer suspension second. sentras have what i call an "american ride" which means they're comfy, but super soft. most suspension kits will also lower the car about an inch i think, not bad.
the stock brakes are wonderful, nice and big...so no change need there.
Anyway good luck with your car man.
