    Hopefully you get more interest to lower the price a little but still not bad for upgraded cables.

    And I'm reviving this thread again! okay so I had a forum up about my shifter not going into all the top gears and learned that my cables are too stretched which was kinda confirmed reading other forums and yes I tried tightening the cable and it partially worked but its only a matter of time until all my top gears stop working completely. assuming of how much of a pain in the ass that is I'm assuming it is going to take me all weekend just to replace those cables. Would it be easier to take the L and pay that $400 to replace with OEM? or is this upgrade going to be worth it? I'm also going to replace my shifter boots with metal ones from Edge Autosport in hopes and prayers that it will fix my shifting problem ahaha. Any advice if I do go about doing this aftermarket replacement

    Let me know if you can find it cheaper or this is the only option as i might have to take you on that offer due to me needing to replace my cable.

    Check out Browns Performance Auto Repair on FB. They just started selling an aftermarket cable kit for the ms6.

    Andrew Brown is dogshit. Don’t buy parts from him, please take my word for this.

    Long story short he’s a piece of trash that makes terrible quality parts. He talks shit about vendors that have been around a long time, then steals their products and remakes them using chinesium quality components and then sells them to people that don’t know any better. He is community trash.

    On the back burner right now. Work picked up and I have had 0 time to continue this project. Maybe after winter I will revisit it, I meant to make an update but forgot.

    I'd be happy to look into making brackets from whatever gauge would be strong enough for these. Probably 11-12 AG should be fine. Haven't looked at a shift assembly for an ms6 yet so I'm not sure how they compare to the ms3

    I have a cad design and everything for the brackets for an MS6. I also have quotes from a few places for the cables, but they are a tad bit high for my liking, that’s also part of the reason for putting it on the back burner. All said and done if this is not more cost effective over a Rey’s kit, I won’t be pursuing it.
    I will gladly keep you in mind if I decide to pick it back up soon.

    Honestly driving my buddy's big turbo ST with the Hurst short throw. Makes me want to pay 300 bucks to shift like that. Said y'all aren't quite sure on lengths for the 3? I'll be pulling the motor soon so I may as well measure. I'll try and find that parts list unless you've got it laying around somewhere. Tired of these sloppy shifts

    I have literally all of the information needed to make a kit, length and all for an MS6.

    If I could snag a full list from ya that'd be absolutely fantastic. Saw a bunch of different part lists through the thread. What worked best? I'll get a measurement for gen 1 shortly

    When I get a chance this weekend I’ll compile everything and throw it your way.
