I hear a lot about the brackets but I went and replaced the shifter with the Barton short shifter. Trust me I would recommend it to anyone. Seriously it's that good the best $260 I've ever spent. It totally changes the way our cars feel to drive. If you thought you had a sports car before just wait till you get the shifter.
I have the Barton two piece bracket.I love it as I have no slop
at all anymore.I paired this up with a SR short shifter and
when I shift from 2 to 3 it automatically wants to go into
the proper position where the shift gates are.
These are by far the best two mods I have done.I'm no
longer afraid of opening it up and missing a shift.
I guess I'm lucky.I switched to MTL fluid in the transmission
and I can shift all gears with one finger.
