997 Shift Console Upgrade

Recommended Posts

I noticed that suncoast offers the 997 Shift Console Upgrade. I was considering adding the B&M short shifter to my 99 996 C2 Coupe. Has anyone tried the 997 kit?

I get the impression that it isn't quite as short a throw as the B&M, but that could just be unclear in the product description.

Any feedback would be great!

That was the shifter I was looking at a while back. I agree the throw needs to be a bit shorter. I'm just wondering if the 997 Shift Console Upgrade would shorten the throw enough? It's cheaper and is direct fit which would be nice. (I believe you have to break a minor plastic piece when installing the B&M. short shifter) I just don't want to do the mod twice.

i had RMS & IMS seal & new clutch done at dealer recently- I broke the shift cable rear clips few yrs back while installing a B&M trans mounted short shifter-

I had cables zip tied to bracket on trans for some time-

bought shift cable & 997 stock shifter from sunset and had dealer put these in while trans was out.

Shifting is much smoother & 997 shifter seems tighter with less play than before & i believe a very slight bit shorter- not sure if this is due to 997 shifter, new cables that are properly attached and/or clutch.

That's what I'm getting from the description. I don't think the 997 kit is about shortening the throw. I think the focus is on the "feel" of a 997 shift being better than the 996. Since I'm looking to shorten the throw it sounds like the B&M would be the best choice. Any other feedback on the B&M would be welcome.
