i got this SSK from BSP. came in 4 days after ordered. cost me $160 with shipping. installation are very easy. poor instruction with no pics. but i can do it without instruction.

shifter kit reduce shift throw, but has stiffing shifting. got use to it after 10 mins of driving around town. Greddy shift knobs screw right on it. perfect combo.

Short Shift Kit that lowers the shifter height and reduces the shifter throw.

Product came complete with all parts needed.Very easy install.Provides an absolutely incredible feeling shifter!!!

I was very aprehensive at first about this product.Worrying that it may produce shifter vibrations and disturb the great feel.After the first day out with this product installed I am absolutely overjoyed.Using the stock shifter in the "other" Miata now feels like shifting a truck.I highly recommend this product.

BrainStorm Short Shift Kit. Shifter lever replacement.

Quick and easy. It took me about 20 minutes to install it. Very straight forward and easy.
I also have the vodoo knob. Combination of both is superb. With the vodoo knob, it felt like a joystick, now, it feels like a longer "power mirror" switch. It requires some "very minor" force to shift. Getting used to takes about 2-3 minutes.
A great product but could have been sold (or worth) a little less. ($200).
Yes, the feeling is great.

You really feel like you are driving a very high performance car but you realize the facts right after you shift. This thing just wants to make you go ahead and get the turbo or sc.
