understeer short shift kit

Does anyone have the short shift kit from understeer.com?
The one for $85. I just ordered the fan delete kit with aluminum housing and metal water pump. I was thinking of getting the short shift kit, but it looks cheap.

if anyone has it installed, would you recommend it?

Thanks

It's nothing special, just a bent OEM ZM3 shifter. I have the same setup, it can be bought at any dealership.

It's not bad, just don't expect a B&M or UUC StgIII feel. Sure beats stock anyway.

I believe the shifter lever itself is $90ish, but then you have to bent the lever or else it won't sit in centered. Plus the pivot cup, clips and washers add about $15 on top of that. The understeer lever comes pre-bent.
