With adjustable throw reduction between 20% and 35%, this kit greatly improves feel over the stock setup with a more positive and precise engagement. Side-to-side movement is not reduced; gear shifts feel familiar and chances for misshift are not increased.

    Great fit and function. Very happy with this item.

    The CTS-Turbo short shifter has to be one of my favourite upgrades I’ve done. The install was very straightforward but for my car I needed to use a puller to remove the old shifter piece. I have mine set to the more aggressive 35% and its an amazing difference. This piece really makes the transmission feel like a totally different car. Highly recommended.

    Easy to install, shifts feel crispy. Changed the whole feeling of the car! Definitely would buy again.
