does anyone know the difference between the the standard el xr8 shifter(manual) and the el gt shifter. Is the gt shifter shorter? Will it bolt straight in or are mods needed? Im after a shorter stick.thanks

off the top of my head the EL GT shifter has 16% shorter throw.

The H-pattern also feels alot more definite than a stanard t5 shifter.
