I'm with ya- I took it to my mechanic today, paid him $300 to adjust things and get it working "right" and, although the throws are short as advertised, it's definitely not as smooth as the stock shifter- and, because it's so stiff, it encourages you to "slam" it into gear. I think I'll switch back to the original after a few drives if my impression doesn't change. Thanks for the input.
