I can see what they did on that 997 factory short shift. The pivot point of the lever was raised, just like the B&M/Porsche short shift used on the 996/986. So watch for B&M to come out with a metal version for the 997.

What is the claimed shift throw reduction in the 997 tequipment booklet?

The problem with the B&M/Porsche 996/986 unit is that the factory cable adjustment tool would not fit on the shift lever because the legs on the tool were too short to snap into the shift tower. That blue tool in the picture has longer legs so it will fit on the 997 factory short shift.

Here is a 996/986 oem shift tower with the orange factory tool.

The stock 997 shifter throw is 15% shorter than the stock 996, if you order the short shifter on a 997 (20% shorter) it would be 35% shorter than a stock 996. The new trans and shifter in the 997 is so smooth and effortless, i deceided not to install the optional short shifter.
