Sorry for the late reply, been on holidays. You have a std shifter. You can go for an intermediate factory item to give you about 130mm, same as later XR's. You can get a Factory Tremec short throw that will give you 110mm, same as BA XR6T, or any number of aftermarket versions which generally come in around the 90-96mm mark. Be wary of the contruction of some aftermarket ones, as they may be prone to noise and vibration.
