I would like to convert my 97 shifter throw into the shorter 93-95 throw. I find when driving a 93-95, it is much more "nochy" in feel which I prefer. What parts will I need to do this conversion? Part numbers would be helpful.
The B&M is stronger than the stock one from what I've heard. I've seen somebody break theirs and I would say go ahead and get the B&M. As for if a '93-95 would work on a '97-98 I would think so after taking it all apart in there. There isn't much room for them to change anything, but I would get the B&M instead.
Brit, I just swapped my 94 shifter out for a b&m. To get the b&m to fit, you have to dremel/file the hole in the car from square to round. Other than that, it is pretty straightforward. If you want to put an earlier mkiv shifter in yours, it slides right in. My 94 shifter is for sale if you are interested, email me. [email protected]
