You must be a terrible driver, or got a bad unit.
This shifter + bracket combo cleaned my shifts up so much that I recommend this to everyone as a first mod if they ask.
This was by far my favorite mod, I would honestly put it over my supercharger. It gives you piece of mind, and confidence in your shifts.
I also agree that you should install it yourself unless you are either very uncoordinated, never turned a wrench in your life, or so rich that you dont mind wasting money. The install took me about 1 1/2 hours, and I did it in the driveway on ramps.
thats what I was thinking but took the high road lol, due to the dual pivot trunion, the Barton side to side throw is not greatly reduced like the Hurst or Steeda units which both use a single pivot.
