Short shift kits

Which short shift kit is better, the schnell kit or the weltmeister kit? And what is a good price range for them?

It depends. The Weltmeister offers adjustability in the throws, the Schnell does not. The Schnell is basically the Weltmeister on the shortest throws. I have a 944Racing short shift, basically the same as the Schnell. I like it alot, cuts throws down a good amount. I couldnt drive one of these cars without one.

Price range will be about $100-120 for the Schnell and about $175-200 for the Weltmeister.

Can you post up a scan of the directions? I know they're supposed to mount on the trans side, but how? Maybe a picture of one installed?

Have you heard of the Stuttgart Motors shift block? Claims to be different than others out there - presumably the Schnell and Weltmeister...actually looks pretty good, but who knows?
look on ebay for item # 8037982423

ANybody have the kolken one? They have a short shift but it looks to me like a lever like most honda's have. Is it? Could you use both?

I am pretty sure the Kolken is the shift lever, basically it shortens the height of the shifter, which in turn shortens throws. Yes, you could use both the shortened lever and the short shift linkage.

I hadn't seen that one before. I just purchased a Schnell style one on Ebay, so hopefully I'll like it.

As stated above the Weltmeister offers adjustability in the throws which I like. I bought one that was not adjustable and did not like it, to short for me. I modified it to make it longer but it would have been easier to have bought one that is adjustable.
