I don't know anyone with OBX. But, I know a lot of people with TWM, TRD, and B&M. And they are happy with them. I would stick with the brand name stuff on this one. wink

Cutting off 2 inches from your stock shifter will only shorten the height of the shifter.

The aftermarket short-shifters actually shorted the throw you need to get from gear to gear as well as making the shifter shorter. Aftermarket shifters also make shifting from gear to gear more "crisp."

My homie eugic92 cut his stock one, it looks like a shortshifter but he says that its really stiff now, so its a bitch to put it into reverse.
