Installed the shifter on Sunday morning with my son in-law who has worked as a mechanic in the past. First off the packaging and instruction are very good right down to the grease and lock tight included. We also used the installed video on my I-Pad which helped. We took our time double checking as we went along. We also had the use of a lift at a shop and without a lift things would had been a lot more difficult . Also installed the heat shield which was simple. The whole install took three an half hours. The shifter is a huge improvement, second to third is spot on and the whole shifter has a much more solid feel. As you remove the old parts an install the new ones you can see how much more substantial the whole unit is. I feel it's worth the price an the time. Very glad I did it.
