Raceseng makes a really nice product. Looks perfect in your car.

Now that you're focused on that area of the car, it's time to ditch that glossy OEM vinyl shift boot for some quality, black perforated leather.

Love your car, OP. Some really excellent choices.

I must have looked at 1000 *****. I kept coming back to the Raceseng. I had a TWM **** in my z and while it was very nice I wasn't a big fan of needing a sock in the summer to protect my hand. This **** also just happens to fit the interior perfectly.

A boot is on the list. I'm trying to knock the higher price items off the list first then the cheaper items will be easier to get.

I am most certainly done for this year. I'm starting to save for a Fast Intentions exhaust for next spring. Well, that and to fix my bumper. I haven't gotten an estimate yet. I used some touch up paint and buffed out the other scuffs as good as I could.
That'll do for now. I'll get it fixed next spring.

After driving with the short shifter for a few days I have to say that while the vibration is annoying I can get used to it. The trade off of the short and super crisp and precise shifts make it worth it. Once in fifth or sixth gear it's not noticible anymore.

The **** does sit very low so I ordered a 2" extension. I think that'll make it the right height. Should be here Friday.

OP cars really coming together, where did you order the extension from? Also have you figured out the vibration issue yet? Ive had the toque solutions STS sitting in my house for probably 9 months now

The screw(s) are either missing and not fully in.

2" is a pretty significant extension. It could end up sitting noticeably higher than stock, with the boot looking awkward. I suspect there will be a hacksaw involved in this project.

The screws are in. The latch on that side of the door just doesn't seem to grab very high.

The vibration is due to the fact that the TS shifter has a metal ball bearing and metal shims vs the stock nylon bushing. It's just transmitting more vibrations up the arm. I wasn't expecting it at first but the more I drive it I can live with the noise because the shifting is just that much better.

Now I'm going to have to work on it and see what I can do about that glove box door. Thanks.

Shortest I could find was 2" and I got it off eBay.
The Sphereology **** is pretty short and the threads go pretty far in so I am hoping it won't st as high. With that said I am anticipating it being higher than I would like. We shall see.
I may have to go the route you took and get one made.

Here's a side view of how it sits now:

If the full length of this ebay stand-off is 2", then subtract from that the depth of the inner threads, and you'll be fine. But I couldn't find anything like that this time last year, which is why I went the custom route.

I feel for what you're doing, because I've been there. Good luck. For context, here's a pic of my stand-off, and the comment link where I talked about it:

So I may have jumped the gun with the 2" extension.

The last couple of posts got me thinking.... and measuring.

2" is going to be too high. No doubt.

Some have posted how they have spaced up the **** in various ways to get the height desired. My **** has an adapter in it to fit the 10x1.25 threads on the Infiniti shifter. That will allow me to space the **** in smaller increments to get maximum thread contact.
I found a couple of spacers that I thought just might do what I needed. One was about 5/8" and the other was 5/16".

By placing the 5/8 spacer below the adapter then using blue locktite I am confident that the spacer won't move.



Then I placed the smaller spacer on top to keep the **** from going all the way down.



I think this is where I want to be. The spacers measured just shy of 1" so, like Rochester said, the 2" extention would've been too much.

Looks better this way.

1" is approximately the drop you're try to recover, and it looks like you figured it out. The important thing here is that you feel the connection is made with enough threads to be solid.

Raising the **** doesn't affect the throw length at all, IMO. I was surprised by that, because conventional wisdom and all that jazz.

I love when Cars & Coffee is held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Such a great venue for C&C.

Had a great turn out today for our local club too. In all I believe we had 15 cars with us.







Also as a bonus there was a local Porsche club that had rented the speedway for the weekend so we had cars ripping around the track also.
