Default Finding Short Shifters for Saturn

Im having a hard time finding a short shifter listed for Saturns. I found a B&M for an ION and one for 03-07 but nothing as far as the "MSO" I heard about or other companies. Can someone give me some links and advice for a good 1995 s series short shifter.

Any 5spd shifter will work in any S-Series. The only premade shifter I knew of was SubZero's but last I knew he wasn't making any more.

...
The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

They're pretty simple to make with some welding skills. Have any friends that can weld?

Happy Re: Finding Short Shifters for Saturn

There are loads of threads on this subject already, but basically- as Low Saturn says you can extend the lower arms where the cables attach by adding in a little bit of metal (welding required) or you can cut 1"-1.5" off the top shaft and lower your knob (hence shortening the throw, simple geometry), or as others have done, do both for a truly short throw. No need to buy one if you are the least bit mechanically skilled or have a buddy who can do it for you.
