WOOO HOOO!!! I just finished installing my short throw shifter. I paid NOTHING!!! I know a welder that helped me out, and my cousin who has done this same mod to his mx3 to help me with the procedure. I got the welder to add on an extra piece of bar to the bottom of the shifter rod, then I hacked off some of the top. Now I have a true STS, that looks nice and short on the interior too! I am really pleased with the results. It's too bad I don't have a digital camera to show you guys everything (I'll try to borrow one soon). Trust me, it's amazing! Email, PM, or just reply if you want details on this install.

Hi! taitonator
I’m very interested in this mod. I’m hoping to do it ASAP, I could do pretty good weld, I’ve only got an arc welder, How strong does the weld need to be?
A Pic. Of bottom end of shaft and dimensions of pieces added/removed would be cool. And what did gauge/type of steal did you use?
Thanks Mate
OH ! you can borrow my camera if you like :p

hey, i just moved in yesterday so I havent had any time to get a camera to post pics. Thanks for the offer of your cam, but I dont think I make it down under right now. I didnt do the welding myself and dont know what metal was used. I added 7/8 of an inch to the bottom. He just cut it, and added that piece in. His welding is really strong though. He's been welding for years. I dont really know what else to tell you. It is an easy mod and I'm surprised more people dont do it. Hopefully i can get ahold of that camera soon.
Easy.
