Just installed mine- the shifts are definitely noticeably shorter.
Install was very simple. Took about 20 mins and is very easy. Love the feel and the throw of it!
Installed my new shifter today. No problems encountered at all. This shifter is short but I like it. So far I have had no problems with it being short. Got sideways shifting into second and no issues at all. Like the look as well. Expecting the Blowfish bracket later in the week but so far I have not encountered any issues shifting. Seems smoother than the stock shifter but that may be because of the reduced throw. All in all I am very satisfied
Installed my short throw shifter today during lunch. Here are my immediate impressions from my short 10 minute drive to work.
--I broke the plastic chrome ring around the shift boot. I was pulling up and wiggling and it detached from the ring that clips into the console. I will have to plastic weld it back on. Not the end of the world, but be careful.
--Much much much shorter than the stock shifter. When I have my hand on the shift knob and I pull it back into 2/4/6 the heel of my hand is rubbing up against the center console. Yes, it's a more natural arm angle but the rubbing may bother me, we'll see.
--The knob is VERY close to the chrome shit boot surround when in 2/4/6. Very very close. Almost so close and short that you can't get your hand behind it. Another inch or two shorter and it would have been trouble, but it's just long enough for it to work.
--The reverse lockout is much stiffer than stock. Takes a lot more effort, and because the shifter is deeper in the console it's a little more awkward to pull it up. It also makes more noise when going up and down compared to stock, but not a big deal.
--Makes an audible "click" when you hit the stops all the way to the left when pushing into first or second. I can't recall if the stock shifter did this.
--Looks very very good. I like the black reverse lockout sleeve compared to stock. The lower look is cooler too.
--Throw is noticeably shorter. Obviously doesn't do anything for notchiness or slop, except for the fact that you shift slightly faster so there is less time for play to affect your shift.
Overall I think it was a good purchase. I don't plan on getting a blowfish bracket or MGW, so this was a happy medium. Be careful when pulling the chrome ring out so you don't break it like I did. Also, if you think a super low shift knob won't work for you, maybe don't buy this because it is VERY VERY short.
Great design, quality feel and materials. Easy install. Best paired with their shift knob.
Followed the development of this unit since it first appeared on the forums and as soon as it was available I had to try it. Of course, I had already bought a shift knob from Boomba for my Mustang and was so amazed by the quality that I didn't even think about waiting to see what others had to say about the shifter... And it didn't disappoint!! 2 day shipping free, good written instructions, installation video online, and the shifter itself is outstanding. Very precise machining, and much better quality materials that the factory unit. Thanks to their purpose built tool, it took a whole 20 Mins. to install it, and that's only because I took my time removing/modifying the boot. It's such an improvement over stock, certainly took me a few drives to work to really begin to appreciate the benefits, but now I can't imagine what it would be like not having it. Can't wait to see what Boomba makes next!!
