ok i was thinking...

instead of spending the 80-120 bucks for a new one of these, i was thinking of sawing a couple inches off the stick itself, then getting one of those tap and die sets or whatever they're called that re-thread things. with this i could re-thread the stick and then voila have a shorter stick.

would it work is my question.

well actually it wouldnt be as good beacause the short shifter is also tighter and shorter in the gear box as well and if i were u i would spend the extra money and get the real thing

yeah, he's right. i sawed off about 2 inches from mine, and put on a shiftknob... but it only lowers the height of the stick from the top, a short shifter extends the bottom which shortens the throw of the gears which is what you want... it's better. i've been driving around for a while with just the chopped stick, and i really want a real STS...
