Great! thanks for the info. i want a quite exhaust, i think that was almost more important the the amount of hp gain to me. i might have to wait on the B&M for now if it is fairly stiff, i can't put pressure on my right hand cause of my recent surgery... but thanks for all your help.

B&M makes it way more fun to drive and it's very cool. I want one.

well any short shifter will be stiffer than stock, it had to do with leverage ratios, you have less with a shorter distance from the force point to the fulcrum
