If there is one thing that I find important in the driving experience it is a nice crisp smooth feeling shiftier. FFR shift linkage is a bit to long to provide a nice shifting experience. The main reason is it has less adjustment options and it also uses extremely long shiftier cables so you lose a lot of feeling while shifting since your cables are about as long as the whole car.
Lucky for us we have an alternative from zero decibel motorsports! –>http://zerodecibelmotorsports.com/products/bell-crank-mechanism-5spd/
Not only does this look awesome it has endless adjustability and looks great too! You will need a few things for this to work however!
- MR2 Shiftier 91. I used a 1991 shiftier from my prior mr2. Most feel this shiftier is a lot better to use compared to the FFR provided option I agree!
- Note: You can use the FRR plastic or metal shiftier if you like though.
- 7 /8 ft shiftier cables!
- The mount for the mr2 shiftier was welded up using some parts from one of the FFR seat brackets as I didn’t end up needing them. I needed my mount to be a bit higher sense I am using a FR-S center console.
