What's a good short shifter?

Where can I get a short shifter and how much do they range from? What's everyone's favorite? Should I get one in conjuction with the flywheel I'm saving up for?

I ordered one from TWM's site on Saturday the 12th and by Sunday the 20th it hadn't even been shipped yet, so I cancelled my order. confused
What's up with that?

Might be better to call it in.

But isn't it over 100 bucks and most other shortshifters are under 50 bucks?

Most other shortshifters are just the shift rod. Ours usually requires new mounting harware, and that's extra $$.

I have not seen a SS under $100. TRD, TWM, B&M are the best. I think that TWM is the shortest. Some people say that it is easier to misshift. Maybe look for some others with the shifter and ask.

i believe they are located up here in canada, so thus perhaps the long shipping time confused
but i still suggest you buying a twm regardless of where you get it!

I agree, I have heard good things about TWM and I think that's the one I'm going to end up going with once I have the funds again.. (My car is still being repaired cry ) But I've also heard B&M can be good... I'd go with TWM IMO! GO CELICA!!! thumbsup
