SVO Lightening Shifter

Well i got mine in the mail today. fitted it up, took about 1 hour(i had a little problem with one bolt, so i had to take the console out to access it from the top.).
Once fitted i took the car for a drive and whow what a differance, once it beds in it will be great.
It has cut the shift length in 1/2.
The action is a little knotchy atm but i have been told they loosen up/wear in, with use.
I will keep you posted.

Neat snappy little shifter with a very direct feel- I've got a surplus one for sale if anyone is interested.

Re: SVO Lightening Shifter

sounds good kerry , has it made the box feel heavier at all? Does it use the standard shifter? Sounds like you got a bloody good price!

Re: SVO Lightening Shifter

NO, it is four bolts to remove the old shifter and put on the new one.
As it is near new it is still quite stiff, Philstoj has one and he says it took a while to loosen up, but still quite firm.
It is heaps better than the old spoon in poridge shifter.
The other option is to put in an XR6T T5 shifter, they are heaps shorter than tthe E series.

Yeah, but then you have to bend down to change gears and reach for the stick.. don't you?

Re: SVO Lightening Shifter

The stick itself is no shorter, it is the throw of the stick.
