Description: We are building and selling our own version of the Saturn shifters for all years SC and SL cars. They can be had in three stages from mild to wild. These are also not just a cut down shaft or different hole placement.
The shifters are completely disassembled and rebuilt with 5 different laser cut parts ( a total of 10 new parts are in and shipped with each shifter).
The throw ratio is changed in both directions fore and aft as well as side to side. The plastic tower is raised to accommodate the extra throw, the stick is shortened and the mounting of the whole assembly is lowered to maintain the stock boot fitment. I've also included a fix for the plastic retainer that breaks in the shift cable. All shifters will have a two year warranty against breakage.

$100.00 Mild: Improved ratio and mounting. Stock stick height. Feels great but not too stiff.

$110.00 Middle ground: Improved ratio and mounting. Slightly shorter than stock height. Great feel and an even shorter/faster throw.

$120.00 Wild: Improved ratio and mounting. Couple inches shorter than stock stick height. Adjustable shift stops to save shift cables. Additional spring bias to improve 2nd to 3rd shifting. This thing takes a beating and is virtually impossible to miss 3rd gear with. I'm a big boy and I shift this thing as hard as a Hurst shifter in a Camaro tranny. I think it feels better too!
It's a little stiff to shift but really only has just over one inch of movement from neutral to any gear.
I've got a lot of parts ready to go or we can build a combination of the stock or medium stick height with added spring rate and stops. Lots of design work in this, it works and feels AWESOME!

All shifters require a $25.00 core.
Payment accepted through PayPal only. Core refunds made to the same PayPal account you pay through.

Is anyone listening? There have been several inquiries about the shifter, but no bites. I swear by these and so will you after driving one. I'm going to give one away for FREE to a frequent poster who agrees to write a review...good, bad or both.
I would like the shifter to go to someone with a car that is driven regularly and hard!
It would be even better if they swapped for a short throw shift from elsewhere for comparison. Once again, is anyone actually reading this?
