Little bit of a pain to install but the difference from stock is 100% worth it. Night and day difference.
I'm simply going to echo the sentiments of every other review on here and say the results are definitely an improvement and this is only after 2 days. I love the nice firm and direct action it gives you and the 40% reduction is seriously noticeable. I had mine installed by SAE Motorsports in Oceanside as well and I'm really looking forward to some more seat time so I can really enjoy these results.
I have had the shifter arm, adapter plate and metal bushibgs (ultimate package short shifter kit) in my 2016 fist for a few months now and it was totally worth the money! I have mine set to 40% reduction and the shifting is smooth and not much more effort from stock. I do have it paired with a 675g ashiko shift knob as well which makes it even easier to shift but even with stock it was still nice. I will say after the initial install it was VERY stiff and almost made me regret putting it on 40%, but after about a week or so it broke in and after a month it is perfect. No slop, and definitely took out one of the week points of the fist which was crazy long throws for a sports car (even longer than my 03 Honda civil lx). Love this product! It's pricey but definitely worth every penny!
At the time of this review, all I have installed is the transmission bushings and adapter plate, but I can already feel a lot more accuracy in shifting. No slop at all, except for a little from inside the cabin if I pull past the shift position. This is something everyone should get, even if you don't do the full short throw package.
My wife purchased this shift kit for me as a Birthday gift. Let me first say that this shortens the gear shifts considerably and also eliminates any mushy feel of the stock shifter. However, the install is very time consuming and can create a few headaches if you aren't prepared. The most difficult part is removing the side shift arm once the entire shift assembly has been pulled out. To do this you have to pry up on a plastic clip that is maybe 1/2 inch long & 1/8 inch wide. I broke this clip trying to get the shift arm out. This made the entire shift assembly useless. I ordered a replacement through Ford for $135 and it took four days to arrive. My FiST was not drivable during this time. Once the new part arrived I had the Ford Tech remove the shift arm to avoid damaging it again. After that, reinstalling everything was pretty straight forward. Now that everything is installed it is a drastic improvement over the stock shifter and I am very happy. Make sure you set enough time aside to complete the job & don't rush it.
Got it all installed a couple days ago and so far so good. Nice reduction to throws. Changed gear oil to motul 300 at the same time. Shifts are nice and solid. The craftsmanship on these parts is impeccable, especially the shifter arm itself. Fit and finish are spot on. Not sure if the bushings do much to improve shifting feel seeing as how they don't fit snug into the openings where the rubber ones used to be. But the rigidity of them may come into play with them being tightened down as they are. Time will tell. Haven't gotten a real aggressive drive on the set up yet but as of now, it's great.
I am in Southern California and I got SAE motorsports in oceanside to install the shifter and blow off valve adapter and I LOVE IT. I had them set it on the shortest throw and It was a dramatic improvement from stock. I recommend this product to all FiestaST drivers. I drove Palomar mountain last night, and I had a blast on every shift!
