You can definitely do it yourself. Not sure how comptech's instructions are, but I hear the device is the same as the neuspeed one, so you can download their instructions, they're pretty good. The hardest part was getting the factory shifter out of the little cup. I ended up rigging a little fulcrum action with a couple of wrenches. PITA, but once that's done it's cake.

Shoot, I'll give you a hand if you want.

nope. First, kudos to the dealer tech that takes your car apart to notice you have it installed, and second, it just changes the fulcrum arm at the shifter, the connection to, and forces on, the transmission are the same.
