Damn thats better. Now I have to get my VR6Eater leather shift boot in there and put the whole console back together

:update: Got the VR6eater shift boot in there now. I ordered it for a stock shifter height but had to make it work with the DSM shifter.

looking good! i'm sporting the same setup. And don't worry, you'll get good at taking the console apart and putting it back together after you do it 50 more times [Razz]

I was going to be tackling this next after the fuel system is done.

I have a 90 and a 91 TEL shifter and boot. Which am I more than likely going to have to use?

Did you modify your's in anyway to shorten the throw?

Did you upgrade the cable heim joints to all steel units or did you just use the nylon ones?

I believe the 90 is different and wont work. Don't quote me on that though.

I didn't modify it to shorten the throw, its just a normal stock DSM shifter.

I didn't have to mess with any "cable heim joints"... at least I don't think I did. [Confused]

OK so these are the same as the 91's+ then? That's cool, I have both.

The heim joints I refer to are the little rod ends that the cables connect to on the shifter that actaute the linkages on the tranny. They have a nylon bushng in them vs a steel one.

It is an upgrade I saw somewhere but don't remember where. Here is a pic I pulled off the VFAQ to illistrate what I am reffering to.

 -

They are 6mm Heim joints (or Rod end to some) and can be replaced for about $10.

This pic, while highlighting another part, you can see the nylon in the heim joint on the right. I pulled them off on one of the cars I got the shifters from, so I could have it to find a replacement, and it is VERY sloppy.

I'll have to take a look at that, but to answer your question then, I didn't mess with that, all I replaced was the actual shifter. Its much better already.

Can I just swap out the actual shifter arm to a 91 and thats it? or do i have to change the whole assembly?

Its just the shifter arm.... one bolt through the center, and a cotter pin holding it on at the bottom. You do have to loosen the whole console in order to be able to slide the arm on/off.
