Ultimate short shift

Recommended Posts

  • Moderators

The shortest shift throw on a Boxster/996 I have ever seen over the years is Danny's 2000 2.7 Boxster. He came to the last work on cars day and I was thinking about meausuring the throws. Why bother - there is almost nothing to measure.

I had always thought he cut down the oem shift lever, like the 550 SE. When I lifted the shift boot he had a B&M. He cut down the shift lever on a B&M!

Danny is not the gt3fx guy - which I think is John Reed. Who, as far as I have seen from the pictures, might have a 3.4 conversion in a 1997.

Not much pictures since I have seen Danny's car so many times over the years. But, it always looks different. I think the NOS gauge is a dream.....

Some old pictures.

Danny's carbon fiber hood fits very well. Alex's turbo has the problem and may have Klevar. And the cross braces are not bonded like on Danny's car.

Danny went back and forth between the cars and showed us what was different.

I did not take picture of the other side of the hood. If they show up on Saturday for detail day and I remember I will take some pictures. Or you can ask Danny where he got his.

If you lift up your hood you see structural supports that make the metal skin rigid. Both Alex and Danny had similar supports. But on Danny's car the supports were bonded to the carbon fiber skin. Not so on Alex's hood which is why there is so much flex.
