No.

The bottom half of the shift lever has to to point straight up without angling forward or backward when in nuetral or else it will cause problems getting the synchro hub slider teeth completely engaged into the gear selector teeth in second and fourth gear, depending on how far the shift lever is angled back from the correct position.
I don't expect you to believe that though.

JFairman,
Why would you say that you don't expect me to believe you? That statement is completely unrelated to the post and somewhat insulting.

I simply asked the question, and you answered it. That's all. No need to question my ability to visualize your explanation and judge it to be worthy of my consideration as to its veracity.

Mark

It may be slightly faster due to shorter throws, but the syncros are what controls the actual shift speed, and they don't like to be rushed.

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.

The 930 would be sooo cool with a sequential shifted 5 or 6 speed (much like on a motorcycle). ...or for Pete's sake, just a transmission you can slam gear to gear like the old Detroit muscle car Muncie M22 rock crushers! I'm afraid to shift mine too fast because of the poor feel of the gates ... I probably would miss a gear and blow something up.

The Wevo shifter helps in that respect, keeping it in the gates.

Even the old M22's would eventually need syncros, a little syncro teeth sharpening and sliders after too many slams, that's why I had 3 backups on the shelf in the old days.

The WEVO's nice but don't expect too much of a change. I thought the coupler made more of difference. I bought the old style WEVO thinking I would modify the lever but haven't bothered. I did put a taller MOMO shift knob on it though to get it a little closer to the wheel.

How much improvement over a fresh rebuilt coupler with new plastic bushings is the WEVO coupler?

Just wanted to get an opinion before shelling out the cash for one of these since I have rebuilt my coupler already.

I've been dreaming of one of these. Do you just use a bock off plate in the original spot? Also how intrusive is the linkage? My kids still ride in back so...

yes i covered the original opening with very thin aluminum plate. i would not think that the linkage would interfere with small passengers in the rear seat area. the conversion thread is on the technical forum...first purchase for another LS conversion....and yes both my porsches are v8 powered...the gulf blue coupe has a dart all aluminum 434 cubic inch small block chevy which makes almost 600 CHP. the 930 has a Mast MOtorsports 427 cubic inch ls7 drive by wire motor which dynoed at slightly over 700 CHP. the blue coupe weighs in at 2300 and the 930 slightly less than 2400.

no, i removed ot years ago. i believe that most do still have the emergency brake in place. not sure how they do it. perhaps shorten the handle and adjust the cables such that there is very little freeplay in them.

Ashes caught garbage on fire, caught plastic container on fire, spread to stuff in garage, spread to porsches, porsches exploded, and took our house down with them. Lost everything we owned and two family dogs. Really Sucked!
this is a terrible story. what a tremendous loss. i just saw this thread and must say this is really heartbreaking. here's to better days ahead.

very best,

pcb
