    I ordered the High Efficiency, not Armor Core. But everything else is the same. I'm not even sure how much of a difference it would make, armor vs H.E.

    The cables have been great, zero problems. I've made a few more length adjustments and it shifts pretty sweet now. It doesn't look like anyone has done much with getting brackets or a kit made. But if you need one I could probably get one whipped up for you.

    I never did get that mechanical stop made, just been too busy/procrastinating. And "quasi-gated" wont be possible due to the thickness of the shifter stem. I'll try to get it finished just so others can see what I had in mind.

    That'd be sweet! I plan to order in a week or two. I'm gonna run it past the DM guys again since they're local to me. If they're a no go I'll definitely be in touch.

    No plans on doing any testing or development of a kit for this. However, we certainly can make brackets to the print as an "at your own risk" part. We didn't do the development so we won't be expecting any profit from those, but we also can't guarantee they'll fit or work.

    Like I said, just didn't want to step on toes. If you guys want it done, get a group going. We'll discuss cost once we have an idea of how many people would really do it.

    I just talked with Raider. Post up a GI thread (I don't think I can) and the list can be kept there.

    I got too impatient and just made my own. Should have cables in the next couple days.

    Let me know how it works. If it works would you be interested in making another for some cash?

    I sure will. Sorry, have to decline on that. My schedule is too packed as is. If things slow down I might whip a couple up but I don't see that happening soon.

    I figured with access to a shop you could just make one. It's two pieces of metal welded together. Now just throw some black primer on it.

    I'm really excited to see how it works out for you. Are you planning on shortening the throw at the transmission or at the shifter? I like the 30% reduction, but with it at the transmission it does increase effort. I'm thinking of reducing it by another 20% at the shifter to reduce effort.

    If you need it done soon and no one else can, I could probably get one made up for you.

    No primer needed, stainless :)

    I haven't decided yet. Probably won't either until it's time to put the hole in. I had a TWM short throw on my last 6 and really liked that so I might just shorten it at the shifter.

    Thanks for the dimensions btw.

    If your talking to me that would be great. Let me know what it will cost shipped to 18045. It's a direct fit right?

    Even with access to a shop, and something that looks simple like that, set up and everything takes a fair bit of time. I think people underestimate set up/clean up on multiple machines like that takes.

    Just an FYI for anyone going to make their own bracket, the dimensions provided will not work with large aftermarket intakes. It will work with some slight changes though. I'll post pics when I have something that fits.

    That's interesting. It shouldn't stand any taller than the factory brackets. Must be the further forward placement of the one bracket plus the sharp corners.

    Are you planning on making a different one completely or modifying the one you already made?

    I can adjust the drawings if you end up letting me know what needs to be changed.
