    Had short shifter installed in my 997S today

    I chose the Porsche OE to be safe. I cannot say I feel a huge difference but the throw is indeed shorter but the big plus is the changes are much quicker and cleaner especially 2-3-4

    Same effort required as the original one. Smooth.

    Wish the car had come that way to begin with. All and all a good modification without breaking the wallet.

    Parts: $460
    Labor: $260

    Re: Had short shifter installed in my 997S today

    You said you notice a difference between 2-3-4. What about the shift from 5-6? Do you still have to push the stick firmly to the right to assure not downshifting into 4th when you want to upshift to 6trh?

    I have heard that 1st gear sometimes gets stuck with the short shifter. Do you have any problem with that so far?

    Re: Had short shifter installed in my 997S today

    Let me tell you 1st that you've make the good choice getting the short shifter, it's one of my favorite options. Concerning the hardness of the gear changing, it's true, when you start your car in the morning or after several hours parked (so the car is not warm) you tend to feel some kind of hardness in gear shifting specially the 1st and 2nd. That would automatically be fixed after a couple of minutes driving, so don't worry about it, it's just normal.

    Re: Had short shifter installed in my 997S today

    Even more so it is actually a good feature, it's like the engine tells you when is ready to play hard.
    This coming from a car that already comunicates feelings and sensations like few others.
    We are really lucky people.

    No issues going into 1st. Few minutes of driving and it gets

    real smooth. I am betting that when thte weather gets real cold it will be harder but once warmed up, it should be fine. Worth it though.
