GOT MY B&M SHIFTER

Hey everyone I called RKsport yesterday and they have inventory on the B&M Shifter. So this morning I drove over to them and picked one up (only 1/2hr from the house). Saturday will be the day for installation

The install process and pictures has been covered really well on another forum several days ago (Friday I think). Put mine in tonight, big difference.

Do you really need to jack up the car to get to 2 13mm bolts...I'm thinking thats the worst part of the installation.

If you can get under the car to the tramission tunnel, no. But you'd have to be really skinny or have a pit to work in. Car ramps would work fine.

WIKID 04 Thanks for the link. I'm very interested in this mod. Seems as though all who have done it have no regrets & all are seeing a worthwhile improvement.

Just added it to my list.

You know if the B&M kit allows you to use the stock shift knob and boot? Desperately need to toss the stock stick in the trash -- but wish to retain the factory look. Let us know how you like your installed product!

Absolutely! The install looks OEM till you shift gears.
