Shift Light

Has anyone out there installed a shift light on their V6 6MT?

On the way to work today, I had a run against a TL about the same age as my 05. I had him by 1/2 - 3/4 of a car before I let up (85 or so). I did lose a bit of lead when I bounced off the fuel cutoff on the 1-2 shift, though.

Is there a recommended shift light and what is involved in the wiring? Thanks.

I just installed a Glow shift tach light. Not hard, power went to fuel pump fuse by the drivers left leg fuse box (fuel pump come on with ignition which is why it's there), ground also ran in the fuse box, and tach signal was ran from ECU under dash/Transmition well. Forgot what pin it was but it was on the Grey harness.

Glowshift, first gear is too slow for me. I have it set at 6,300 and still tag redline... But I do have a good amount of spin , Rest of gears are good.

I just found this one: Red is half the price of the other colors so I think I'll give it a shot for $25.

Glow shift looks much cleaner, IMO
