Short throw shifter's from eBay, are they any good?


Recommended Posts

I have seen these installed at an informal tech session here in the East Coast, and have noticed that when installed they don't allow the shift knob to sit straight up and center when in neutral.... ie. they are angled toward the driver when installed. If this doesn't bother you, then I think it's fine.

From eBay, I see a number of these available, look to be pretty much all the same blue anodized piece with chrome shift handle.

Do they work well, and feed back from those that have tried them, etc.

Thanks, Al

I have a B&M short shifter installed. Looks alot like that one. The handle does stand up straight in neutral. The best part is shifting with a simple rotation of your wrist. Your arm does not have to move.

Hey Jim, a couple of things, does the stock shifter knob fit on these and does it sit in the correct position for neutral? (Boxstaboy's comment has me concerned...)

Thanks, Al

Westcoaster, honestly, I would forgo the ebay clone shifter because it won't sit straight up in neutral after installed. It will be angled slightly toward the driver. It works fine, but the fact that it didn't look stock after installation would bother me if I put it in my car, and might bother the next buyer of your car too. IMHO, go for either the B&M shifter or the Schnell. They may cost a little more, but both sit in the correct position when installed. All 3 (Ebay, Schnell, and B&M) will accept the stock shift knob btw.

See my post. The shifter is great. Just flip the lever around before you install it and it will stand straight up.
