Just installed Understeer.com SSK

I just installed understeer.com short shift kit (SSK). It is a PITA to install, as the driveshaft and exhaust are in the way. Also, with the car on jack stands, there was not a lot of room.

I am glad to report, that it is worth it. The throws are 40% shorter and much more direct. So far the best mod for $115 Canadian shipped to my door.

Just a few.Follow the instructions the understeer.com provides and take your time. Try to jack up the car as much as you can, as you need the room.

After I lost the first clip somewhere in the heat shield, I put on some thin wire on the clip, so when it pops off, I can easily get it back.

Good Luck!
