Short Throw Shifter Install

  1. hey has anyone attempted a Short Throw shifter install. I bought the Ford Racing Short throw and think Im into a fairly big project. I looked at the linkage and its up on top of the trans. Anyone got experience or know who has? I installed the ford racing handle... Its a Must. the stock handle has a rubber mount and makes the shifting very mushy. With the new handle it is really reactive. Thanks for any help. Paul:nice:
  2. It is a big job. I haven't installed one yet, but will be, so I've read up on it. You have to remove the driveshaft, the tranny crossmember, and possibly the exhaust. Then lower the back of the tranny to get at all the attachment points.
    I'm hoping to do mine at the same time as my header install, so that will ease some of the work.
    Good luck!
