finnished my DIY shift rod selector

took me quite a while cause i was using small machines but got the job done the same never the less

replaces the part of the shift assembaly thats been known to wear down and make your shifter wobble

UUC makes one similar but i made mine slightly different then theirs, i was worried about clearance with the driveshaft

What exactly is that part? I can get them CNC machined if anyone is interested.

You will need a CNC lathe. This part is the linkage that attaches the bottom of the shifter to the tranny selector. The added weight allows easier shifting and the tighter tolerances removes 'slop' from the shifer.

No problem, I STILL have to finish the CAIs first. The problem is that since I installed the S/C in my car, I don't have a template to fit them. Looking into buying another E36.
