At last, a short shifter that gives your 5-Speed VW choices! In house engineered and manufactured in America with precision quality and focus to detail! The ECS Adjustable Short Shifter Kit comes with five balancing weights that can be bolted on to the shift pivot arm or removed as needed to adjust shift feel. These weights fix the problem of lesser short shift kits, which leave the lever feeling vague and disconnected.
Reduce shift throws by 40, 20 percent, or leave them stock using one of the three pre-drilled adjustment holes. Make adjustments under the hood quickly and experiment until you find the best combination of throw and shift feel for your driving habits. We are partial to using the maximum amount of counter weights and leaving the shifter at the shortest throw for best performance. This offers good, positive feeling shift motion with a "click-type" shifter engagement .
Our shift lever arm and counterweight bracket are both CNC manufactured from mild steel and then plated in a high quality black zinc-chromate finish for excellent corrosion resistance. The kit comes with a billet 304 stainless steel shifter pin in 10.0mm size for factory-like fitment and the counterweight hardware is high quality 18-8 stainless steel.
**NOTE: May require re-positioning of shift cables (home position). We recommend Tool # T10027A for proper alignment. Please reference our Online Installation PDF for procedure.**
To determine if this kit will fit your vehicle, inspect your factory shift lever (located underneath your shift knob and boot). Your factory lever must be straight (no arc bend).
And to also confirm correct part for up to 2001 models, the stock shifter cable is connected to the selector lever on the transmission to a ball-shaped mounting stud.
**Will not fit vehicles from the 1998 and 1999 model years.**
