I installed a weltmeister short shift kit and also fabricated a short extension on a lathe that attaches to the end of the shift rod and extends the shifter by about 3 inches. I also bent it back towards the drivers side to shorten the reach in first and third gear.
Reattached the shift ball to the end of this extension piece and it works real nice.

Of course you still can't rush the shifts like a modern box, so instructors at track events are always commenting on how long it takes to shift and its like I am rowing a boat.
