i thought it looked wierd too but not now...mine was really hard to shift when i put it in but after driving around a few days and making a lot of gear changes...you know, gear down to pass a car even when you really dont need too...even sitting at red lights i would take it through the gears just to loosen it up...after about 2-3 days...it is smooth as can be...very nice...love it

before you installed your twm ss, you should've greased the metal bearings or sprayed silicone oil on them. but after a few days it'll be all good.
