Quick Shift


I have heard a lot about quick shifts and that people add them to their cars and they dont cost much. I have a 5 speed manual. What do these actually do, where do you get them? Are they inexpensive....and are they hard to put in to an Ea Gl....

Re: Quick Shift

HI Pazza,

Dont take my word for it, but my understanding is that a quick shift is for an auto trans and just makes the car go into gear quicker from the time you manually put it into gear. my xd 4.9 had one and it used to go into gear a bit harder and faster than standard when i manually was selecting the gears

Re: Quick Shift

i was under the impression that a 'quick shifter' was for manual - a shortened shifter lever type effect, giving less lever travel.
and a 'shift kit' is an electronic device fitted to auto to make the box shift faster.

could be wrong...

Re: Quick Shift

A quick shift is what people put in auto's not manuals and what SVO has is just a short shifter really.

With a quick shifter on a Auto, you pull the quick shifter and it goes up a gear. Basically it does what you can do with your standard auto T-bar, but with less fidling(pull quick shifter, goes up a gear).

Won't work on a 4 speed Auto unfortunately anyway as they are electronically controlled and it changes up a gear automatically at a certain RPM.
