Is a short shifter really going to eliminate the jello feeling? Sure it will increase effort and shorten the throw which is all for the better but you are still dealing with a cable linkage thanks to FWD. I would be surprised if you can get it to feel anything near as solid and mechanical as a Miata or BRZ.The part that the ST needs badly is a shorter shifter. The stock one is the typical telephone pole connected to jello.
I personally have never had any problems.Do frpp parts preserve warranty?
Wait until you drive it for a week. I personally think 1st should be closer to 2nd, ratio-wise. Similarly, , 5th would be better slightly closer to 4th, reserving 6th for a super-overdrive gear. 2nd to 3rd gear change isn't bad but 4th to 5th is truck-like. 1-2 shift comes up really quick too which can be a pain at busy, city intersections.Short Shifter after driving a PB dealer unit today... But will wait and see what comes over the winter months
