Also, I took the heat shield off... will it do any damage if I don't replace it? One of my friends seems to think the heat shield is worthless. Thanks for your help... this is my first posting
I have never grinded a gear once w/ my B&M, shifts are extremely smooth and easy.i just got a B & M short shifter and one of my buddies said that it may grind a lot. is that true only on a poor install ????
This was the first mod. I did and I really didn't know what I was getting in to, it took me ~4 hours. It is not simply taking the stock boot off and replacing the shifter. You have to jack the car up, drop the exhaust and work in a very small space surrounded by the f#$king razor sharp heat shield. My hands were not happy at the end of the day.Installing a short shifter is one of the easiest things you can do to your car. honestly it should take only 2 hours if you know what u r doin
