B & M Short Shifter Questions

Recommended Posts

This is my first post... I hope I am following the proper protocol.... Anyway, I have '01 996 C2. I recently installed a B & M Short Shift kit. I marked my cables as suggested in other posts, but found that the shift way too tight.... I loosened the cables and loosened the screw that is supposed to reduce end-play on the short shifter itself (didn't even feel any end-play after this adjustment). After a couple of days I notice that things have loosened up nicely and have become less notchy... The only potential issue is that there is a little end play now... Is having a little end-play a good/bad thing.... a personal preference.... should I just remove the end-play? Personally, it doesn't bother me that much, but I suppose I'll get used to any tolerable feel as I haven't driven a manual for a long time.... I would like some advice from the more serious drivers out there so I get the most of this mod moving forward.

The end play (if not excessive) should not hurt anything. Some folks go back in and adjust the end after a couple of years after things are well worn in. If it doesn't bother you then I would leave it as is - but if you start missing shifts you might want to tighten it up a bit. When we install them at our "Work on cars days" we adjust them so that the shifter is just loose enough to return to center on it's when released.
