I had a big-name short shifter kit in my car. It wasn't so good. The length was wrong and the bend put the knob in the wrong place.
Then I found UUC Motorwerks. Their Competition level kit with ERK is fantastic. Don't be afraid of the name "Competition" name or the reduction in throw. Definitely go for the Competition kit with ERK over the Street kit. I can't gush enough about it. I have a pair of the delrin bushings that will go in my car when I install a clutch, sometime before the Y2K autocross season. Check out their site for more info. 'Nuff said
