I bought that same shifter extension for my hatchhow does it feel I haven't  put my shift linkage on yet to see how it does


It feels pretty good to me.

I can't give a direct compariso n right now because this car came with some kind of short shifter when I picked it up. 

But the weigh of the shifter extension does bother me - especiall y since I bought the duracon knob to save weight. 

Yes, I'm that meticulou s about weight.

I'm not happy about having to add weight back in with the hf front swaybar and some kind of rear swaybar - maybe I can go hollow in the rear.

No fun.

Yesterday I rewired the gauges and installed heater controls.

Yay my heat works now.
