Cool, nice to hear good things about it. I was planning on purchasing this too since it seems good for the price. The shift knob that came with it looks sorta cheap, a weighted shift knob should be a good addition to this kit.
^ Yes, you see the edges of the base of the shift boot? You'll notice there's a wire trim. Now pull up the shifter plastic area. In the shifter cut out area, you'll notice little clip looking things. The shift boot wire trim/edge slides into those. You basically have to remove the shift knob in order to place the boot under the shifter plastic area.
I bought my Fidanza SS about a month or so ago, and in the picture it showed that there were bushings that came w/ the shifter, but none came w/ the shifter. I just wanted to know if your SS came w/ the Fidanza bushings, or did you use the stock bushings. I thought that w/ the stock bushings the shifter wouldn't feel smooth or shift rights. A little insight would help me a lot. Thanks in advance.
