Steeda tri-ax shifter install problems

Let me start this off by saying I have not contacted Steeda yet. I am not in any bashing or making judgment on this product yet. I just bought their short throw shifter this afternoon. I had my mechanic buddy install it for me. Followed all the instructions and even watched the videos to ensure its was done properly. The install seemed to go well. Even the bracket was easier then I expected. We completed the install in about 2 hours.

Went to go drive it and the reverse lock out was not functional at all. I have never had a problem with mixing up reverse and 1st gear but now it's a continual problem. The down shift going from 3rd into 2nd before a turn is not fuild at all.

I am trying to see if anyone is having any of these problems. When in gear and shifting through the gear it's a great unit but when at a stop I am contansely concerned about being in the right gear.

That is what I thought as well but we rechecked it and it is positioned the way it should be.

Check the 4 bolts underneath the shifter that hold the handle in place, those may be loose which would cause you not to properly engage gears.
