Hi all,

I wonder if there any short throw shifters easily available for our 164(s). I have seen them having on 156 and on some cars with savali engines. If anyone does, could you tell us how much it costs and how difficult it is to do on 164 and also how does it feel according to shifting and response. I know its very easy to do on subarus.

relax... A lot of people here are not into those things.

But to answer your question YES!! It's called a hack saw.

Cut down your stick about 1/2-1" for shorter throws. I find it much easer and faster.
Actually the throw is really short already it is the main shifter shaft that is long for easy reach thus making it seem like a like throw.

here is an idea: I cut off an 1"

"HACK SAW" :D, whose invention is that :p. So, in our case you basically take out the shifter road and cut 1" in its neck section and weld it back with the knob section :eek:??

The hack saw method is fine on the 1991-1993 cars, but doesn't work quite right on the later cars with the reverse interlock collar thingie...
