Luke,
The shifter is a go, for sure. I tested the latest design version this past weekend. I still need to make a couple of changes but it's looking very good. I don't have an exact eta but should be in a few weeks.

I'll work with PP to see if they are interested in offering a group buy.

That's a Hargett Craig? I thought they all had an elevated pedestal?

Gotcha- I've heard great things about the WEVO, but the Hargett design is intriguing.

I may be totally off here, but about 2 years ago a guy in my area had one installed.
IN MY OPINION, it looked really odd, like an erector set between the seats. And the shop had a hard time with the install.

Just what I saw & heard.

I own an 87 turbo and I noticed that turbos up to 1986 have a specific shifter. What changes did they make for my 1987. My car had an early 915 type and worked like hell. I took it out and replaced it with a 4 speed shifter from Einmalig in H.B., Ca. I guess someone replaced the original for some reason and geez it had 5th gear and reverse lockout. what a mess. Car didnt shift right and wore the synchros. I get a little scatchiness going into 3rd sometimes. Most people have forgotten what the car should have. I also would like to bend the shifting lever back toward me alittle. I think Ferry Porsche designed the shifter ergo for midgets. I'm 6'2" and have to result to some stretching to hit first and third. Poor me... 6 bones for a Wevo ? maybe after the k27 upgrade.

Bob

The WEVO looks nice. But, in the end, you've still got the same sort of reach you have with the 930 shifter. If that's what you desire, with the "notchy" controlled feel that the WEVO provides, then the WEVO is for you.

If you are running your car hard, or are tall, and want the shifter in a very easy to reach configuration, with a good solid feel for when it goes in gear, then the Hargett is a great option.

Both are valid. It just depends on which one you want. The new design that Hargett has looks great, and the WEVO looks great, so from an aesthetics standpoint, either one will fit the bill.

It all depends on what you want. With the way I sit in my seat (I'm 5'8 - 5' 9) the Hargett offers a near perfect placement for me. And when I push or pull it into gear, I know it. Its a very "direct" feeling.

As far as install, the Hargett takes about 15 minutes I'd say, then you "dial it in", mainly to position it the way you want it. As far as aligning it and getting it working, 15 minutes though.

I've had mine for close to 2 years now, and mine I believe was actually one of the proto-types, that was shipped back and forth across the country several times in order to make changes to get it right.

Nobody's right, nobody's wrong here. It is simply what you prefer. In the end, "its a shifter!". And one meets one set of goals, the other meets a different set.

For racing, I'd go Hargett (but that's me).
I think A930Rocket would say the same.

Brian

I'd have to measure it to be honest. Its's in reality probably longer than the WEVO (don't have a clue really), but it feels shorter because its right here beside of you.

So its hard to tell, I'd have to take a measurement to be honest.

herbert : YOU DA MAN! My best is a 1:44.9
of course I've never gone to CMP with new tires (seems like a waste to me )

Good points, yet let me add a few things:

A friend in OR installed one in his 4 speed 930, and the reach is moved further back. But *not* as much as a Hargett.

The WEVO in my G50 is considerably further towards the rear, plus the shift lever cage is adjusable via the 3 slots

to allow fore & aft adjsutments, thereby making the shifter reside further in either direction..

It is definitely more notchy, as the travel has lessened.
It truly only shifts really well when absolutely fully warm, whereas before it shifted decently when cold.

G50 specific:
What amazed me about the WEVO is even though the literature describes the G50 shifter as NOT
having a centering mechanism as the 915 shifters do, the WEVO is much more centered than the stock lever.
And the stock lever busings were in great shape. I suppose I could figure out why if I removed the WEVO and reinstalled the stock,
but it was a very tight fit and took some working and cutting of the collar bushing to make it even go in...so I won't be doing that anytime again soon.

The Hargett configuration looks great from the aspect that I want a tall lever - I am making my 930 have the seat height,
rough shift lever location, and steering wheel location of a Cup car. I need to get the extension from WEVO to accomplish this.

Preference is totally the key - you got it Brian.
If you can get time in cars that have both (I did, I was fortunate) then you are all set to make your own decision.
I prefered the WEVO for it's simpler looks and the feel I liked.
