It was sorta easy to install, I just didn't have much room to work with. Haha. And had to make a frankenrachet full of extensions, adapters, and swivel heads for the passenger side. Haha. Took about two hours be ause I was bull****ting around and had stubborn O2 sensors and bolts. Lol.
But DEFINITELY worth it. Vid soon to come. Sorry for delay.

And the steeda shifter I installed in about 45 mins. Works great as well. Most definitely worth it.

And my car is a GT.

The pass side can be a ***** but I have a specific socket for pulling those Xpipes or Hpipes

I got the passenger side off in like two mins. Haha. And the driver side. I had the stock h-pipe off in like ten mins. But the 02 sensors were seized so those are what took the longest. Lol

Went take a little ride today. First trip since the trans rebuild. Still don't like the tri-ax. But that's just me probably.

It's got spring tension on it and it doesn't center itself with 3rd gear which is the most important gear to me at the strip. So grabbing third is tricky at times. Plus I just don't like the angle. I'm gonna try the mgw next. It's a six speed. It may be better for the 5 speeds.

Ohh must be the difference between the 5 and 6 speeds cause it centers on the 5 perfect.

That's what I thought. Mine is right in between 3rd and 5th. I don't think the counter springs can be adjusted. If the mgw doesnt do it for me, I'm going pro5.0 on it. Old school proven.

It might be worth taking the top 4 bolts out and checking. I'm surprised for the 6 speed that they didn't center it on third. Or call them and check. Pro 5.0 though is proven and I would have gotten it if I didn't get this brand new for $120

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one that is this impatient to put new parts on!

Haha. Well I'm completely happy with my tri-ax. It centers right between third and fourth gear. It makes hitting third a no-brainer.
