Short Throw Shifters

Has anybody had any experience with the short throw shifters sold through eBay? I would like to get one but don't want to pay top dollar if I don't have to, but most of all I don't want to waste my time and $$$!

Thanks

remember....you get what you pay for"...its ok to purchase items through ebay, my advice is to make sure the item you buy is a name brand, not a half-*** imitation product of a no-name company....i bought a short throw shift on ebay from B&M), works great and saved about 115$.....just keep an eye out

ive heard some of the ebay shifters are ok. they make the shifter alittle shorter but dont reduce throw that much. i would just save up for the name brand stuff becasue you know it will work right.

What Nismo1 said, pick up name brand stuff on ebay, save money while still getting good parts

That Nismo $50 shifter is not a real nismo shifter. Get a name brand shifter. B&M or C's

I've seen it but no experiece. It appears to still use the stock mounting plate so I don't know how effectively it shortens the throw. One thing it does have is adjustable HEIGHT. You can shorten the actual length of the stalk. In essence it does the same thing as shortening the throw, except you'll still have the sloppy *** stock shifter.
