neuspeed short shifter

just put in my neuspeed short shifter today at work. for anyone interested, you should spend the $50 and get it. it has a good throw, although, if it were any shorter i would think it was too short. relatively easy to put in, just a bit of a pain to get the plastic cup off the bottom of the shifter. i used a pair of wire cutters and just pryed and pryed until it popped off. everything else was a piece of cake.

just wanted to give anyone with a manual a heads up on a good purchase.

yeah, you should put some loc-tite on there. i tried tightening that thing until i thought that the little allen screws would break off, and it came loose. tightened it again with the power of godzilla working on that little allen key. came loose again. turns out the reason it comes off it just based on how the shifter moves...when you shift forward or backward, the ball supplies a loosening moment to either one allen screw or the other, which naturally unscrews them. you can't help it.

then i tried turning it sideways and tightening the screws in the front/back position. theoretically, it should hold since the shifter rod shouldn't rotate the ball against the adapter. but alas, this method was hard as hell to tigheten (try fitting your fingers thru the little rod hole to tighten the front allen). it SHOULD work, but i didn't really trust it since i couldn't apply much torque to tighten it because you can't really get much with your index and middle finger on the allen key.

what i finally decided to do was use loctite on the allen screws, the kind that you can shear loose if you apply enough torque. i think it is loctite yellow... it's the middle strength stuff. i haven't had a problem since.

no, it does not. The shifter is like a fulcrum, the short shift adapter fit on the other end of the fulcrum.

The comptech and the neuspeed short shifters look very similar, they might even be the exact same design. I believe the comptech kit comes with a little tool to remove that plastic ball. I think $30 is what it costs used.

yeah, i just got my comptech for $50 shipped.

One thing that neuspeed definnetally has on the comptech is the instructions. The comptech's sucked! Then again, it's a simple enough install to use common sense.

^^ yeah, about that. Except I let the loctite dry overnite cause I was working in the dark anyways. It's that easy to install that you can do it in the dark

You installed it in the dark? Damn, I know for sure that I would lose all kinds of nuts and bolts if I did that

does anone know how much it reduced the throw, and how much shorter than stock is the SS (in terms of length)? trapshot was telling me the spec sheet says throws are reduced by 38%.

It just makes the "shifting" shorter. Not the autual Shifter itself. It a peice that pops onto the bottom of the shifter. I have the Neuspeed SS which looks exactlly like the Comptech SS.

Yea, but if you cut the shift lever, you're not shortening your throws. Are you combining that with a SS or some sort?

I personally like the fact that you can basically shift with your arm on the center console..but I'm lazy like that

oh, didnt know that. im sure it reduces the throws to a degree, but you may be right in that its not significant. ill probably cut the shifter an inch (for aesthetics) and also get an SS. thanks!

um, Wong has the i4, which doesn't have the nut on the bottom of the knob.

From what I've seen, only the 6spd has the nut.

I don't understand - you removed the nut and the throws are shorter? Probably not- the lever might be shorter, but that's not going to make your throws shorter..unless you have a Short shifter in there of course.

YES 100 times better!!! The throw on it is shorter than an s2000's throw. Very good combination Neuspeed & 2 inches off of it. Yah I did it a long time ago also, just never put up any pics.

well actually, reducing the height of your shift lever will reduce your throws. it wont be as obvious of a difference as a ss adapter will produce, but nonetheless reduces throws to a degree. if you dont believe me, grab your shift lever right under your shift knob, and try shifting like that. throws will be shorter, and much stiffer due to reduced torque.

i think tomorrow i will try tapping the i4 lever an extra inch so that the knob can be turned to its maximum. not sure how much more room the knob has got inside, but i'll give it a shot. keep yall posted with pics if i decide to do it. mostly for show, but perhaps may reduce throw a noticeable amt. but hey, if its free and undo-able, why not give it a shot ;D
