A4 shift kit?

Ive been searching around the forum for the anwser to the question for a while. And I do know that the Automatic transmissions in our cars are great, but still wanted the option of manually shifting it like I could in some other cars that I have built with 700r4 or TH400 transmissions.

Ive looked on summit and other parts websites and have seen that B&M does make a couple rachet shifters that say they are compatable with the new GTO. Has anybody installed one in thier cars or even have pictures?

Thanks in advanced for any help.

NO!!!! DONT DO IT! I have had nothing but problems with my shifter, the metal flexes too much and makes it a nightmare to put the stupid thing in gear, and that was before i started have the problems that I have now and dont know how to fix. At least i knew how to fix that

can't keep up with the abuse, my stick literally flexes. It's ridiculous! That is just one of the many problems. Do you know much about clutches and Slaves?

Are you talking about a shift kit, or a aftermarket shifter?

Red, mongoose is talking about an automatic transmission. Sounds like you are talking about a manual transmission. You have the B&M manual shifter for your car?

That's ok. You need to toss that junk and replace it with a BMM Ripshifter.
