    Yes, the stock knob will fit. The attachment point is not modified at all.

    But the stock knob is such a light POS that it really doesn't do this modded shifter justice. The GTO/Holden knob is much heavier and works great with this setup. It takes this mod from a 7 to a 10 out of 10.

    Don't get me wrong, I am sure this mod is well worth it. Someone should do a little vid on the best way to get those bushings to fit. Prying with a screwdriver, holding the slit together with a cable tie to get them started, carving off the leading edge to a 45-degree angle with a razor, grease and/or WD40, I mean I tried EVERYTHING. Lastly, I carved some plastic to brace the bottom of the bushings while forcing down with a large screwdriver. It finally made it on there, although not perfect; slit offset 1/8".

    It was just kicking my butt. I decided to wait for a friend's help rather than tackle the lower 5mm allen alone.

    That's weird..... I had NO problem putting the UUC bushings in with just a TINY amount of lithium grease on the leading edges only. I just used my hands to pull the bracket over the bushings. Wasn't very hard at all. Maybe I got lucky?

    Ditto, no problems for me either after lubing them up...I did remove my driveshaft and center section of my exhaust to gain more access though.

    As far as the shifter, HOLY CRAP I wish I had it a loooong time ago!

    So how much is this shifter? and how long would it take to ship to 85281? to install do I have to drop the tranny? or can everything be done from the top of the car?

    I know its an old thread, but can we still get a shifter from PISSNUOFF?

    Absolutely. You'll have to get the polyurethane bushings from either Lindsay Cadillac or Creative Steel as I don't carry them anymore.

    Re: Review: PISNUOFF's Custom Short Shifter

    So, I received my pissnuoff shifter. I've had it in about 3 weeks now. I know I looked forever for a comparison between it and a uuc shifter. Well, I went from uuc to this, and it's a considerable difference. I changed nothing but the shifter. Uuc bushings were already in there. Shorter shifts, more crisp, and easier shifts. Also, the pissnuoff shifter was painted sparkly purple, which made me giggle. Anyhow, I'd go with Pissnuoff's shifter any day over the uuc! No comparison, his is much better.
