if im not mistaken, a short shiftet kit shortens the throw for faster shifts. a cut stock shifter just shortens the height of the shifter.

If you cut your stock shifter down you will shorten the throw but probably not as much as a shifter that has the pivot point moved or the bottom half of the shifter extended.


Think about it in extremes..if the stock shifter was 2 feet long can you imagine how long of a throw it would be? Likewise if the shifter ball was just above the pivot point the throw would be super short so shortening the height has a direct effect on the throw.

well, if it's any help, my B&M was shaped exactly the same as the stock one, just shorter, it didn't move the pivot point. so instead of buying a B&M shifter (mine broke) you just saved some money.

but yeah, there are shifters out there that actually move the pivot point.
