997 Short Shift Install...

Recommended Posts

I imagine just about everything has been said already about the 997 short shift install in the 996, but I thought I would add

my 2 cents. I think for the money it's a great update. I didn't see that much difference in the shifting throw, but I did see a big improvement in the crispness of the gates. Bottom line, it's a worthwhile addition...

As far as the install goes it's a non event once you get the shift knob off. Loren told me to heat the steel shaft, even then It took more muscle than I thought I had. Twisting left and right and pulling at the same time will eventually get the job

done. One thing that I missed is that out of the 9 retaining torx screws there's 3 different styles, so best you mark where

each screw comes from. Also I nearly forgot to release the spring loaded rod keepers after mounting the shift mechanism.

Lastly there's 2 screws in the console storage floor. One is under the storage floor, the other retains the storage floor.

The hole in the console storage on the right side was too large for the washer head torx screw to grab anything. Not sure why,

so I counter sunk a hole in the floor plate which will hold down both the floor plate and the console.

Bottom line, for $225 is a nice upgrade to your shifter. My car has 60,000 miles so it wasn't a matter of replacing a worn

out shifter, it's just a good upgrade...
