B&m Ssk & Great Vendor Experience


Recommended Posts

I had the B&M under car short shift kit installed in my '04 Carrera today, and really like it a lot. You can select 10%, 20% or 30% shift throw reduction--I went with 30%. It attaches between the gear cord and the transmission.

The throw from 3rd to 4th, as an example, decreased from 5" stock to 3.5" with the B&M (30%). The shifts are much more defined, but not notchy (if that's a word). Shifting effort is increased a bit (due to physics), but it's a welcomed shifting tightness. Left to right travel is unchanged, so you won't accidentally downshift from 5th to 2nd.

I got it from Brandywine Porsche for $175. As usual, Justin Lane was great. There was a mix up (apparently caused by mislabeling by B&M) and I originally got the wrong part, but Justin stepped up & got it fixed.

For you bay area folks, I had it installed at Akkurat in Menlo Park http://www.akkuratpgi.com . I can't say enough about their professionalism and expertise...and they're great guys to boot! They recognized it was the wrong part, and worked with B&M, along with Justin, and had the correct part FedEx'd to them today. George Young is a great guy.

Here's a pic of the gear cords attached to the transmission before installation:

Here's a comparison, with stock shift throws on top, and B&M on bottom. The throw reduction in 3rd gear is misleading, because neutral with the B&M is moved forward a bit.

For those (like me) who wanted shorter shift throws, but were concerned with overly difficult shifting, I can say that this is the ticket.

Now I just need to figure a way to lower my car without increasing ride harshness...

I "second" everything you said about the positive changes with this SSK. It works well right out of the box. Absolutely no left/right issues, no adjustment issues, nothing, just install and go.

When I made the decision to order a SSK, I "thought" I ordered the in-car version. Imagine my surprise when I opened the box to find the under-car version. Justin convinced me to try it anyway, and I'm sure glad he did.

It is so simple, yet works so well.

Yep--simple but effective. I guess the guys who designed it paid attention in physics class! :clapping:
