    Re: Mallett Shifter

    The cost of the shifter is $450.00 with a return core of$100.00 upon receipt of the OEM shifter. If you are mechanically inclined, you can change out the shifter.
    ^^ that is from the Mallett press release or whatever it was, I believe.

    I may have my dealer do it just so I can go gawk at the blonde in reception.

    The lowering of the tranny is what scares me.. I am mechanically inclined, but I do not have a transmission jack nor the tools to disconnect the drive shaft.. I will need to have it don unless removing the console will be enough.

    Re: Mallett Shifter

    Lowering the tranny and dropping the exhaust shouldn't be too tough. Think I'll try to line up the shifter about the time a Corsa exhaust is finally available (if ever?) and do them both at the same time. That is if Corsa is less expensive direct or elsewhere than what Cadillac charges. I can't imagine the shifter install is that difficult, but of course, I say this after spending a little over 9 hours last Monday installing the shifter in my '66 Chevy II. Should have been a 45 minute deal - but I guess I forgot to keep it simple and turned it into an ordeal.

    Hopefully the V shifter wouldn't be that way.

    Re: Mallett Shifter

    Ok I took the plunge. 2 week fabrication and they ship it out.

    Only other parts currently avail. are the suspension kits but they don't have a finalized price they are made to order.

    I'm in too. Can't wait. I'll try to use my buddies lift and take pics/publish a howto if I have time...

    Great to see more aftermarket finally available for the V.

    Also, spoke to Corsa this a.m. and they claim we're about 3 weeks out. We'll see (sorry, no thread-jack intended).

    Received this email this a.m. (Friday, July 2nd)


    "My sincere apologies Bill! Upon multiple builds we noticed that additional
    machining was necessary to ensure customer satisfaction. I can guarantee
    that your shifter will ship following the holiday weekend. I will update
    you with tracking information when it leaves our facility. Again, thank you
    for your patience.

    Regards,

    Tina Fisher"

    Re: Mallett Shifter

    I called two weeks ago and they said they would ship mine out on June 21. However, I have not received it yet so I called them this past Monday (June 28. They said there was a defect in the machining for the shifter (or something) and they would have it sent out by the end of this week. We'll see.

    Re: Mallett Shifter

    Okay, mine came in the mail today.

    The length of the shift arm looks a little shorter than the stock one. But I really hope it makes the shifts more precise. That is why I bought it.

    The directions are pretty funny. Basically they say,
    "Remove exhaust, Remove Driveshaft, Lower Transmission, Remove shifter. Installation is reversed"

    I should have time this holiday weekend to get it in. I will take pics and write intructions for everybody & www.cadillacfaq.com

    That's pretty funny (not) . I may think about waiting to do this until I get under there to do some exhaust work or something (I HATE doing double work).
    Further instructions would be appreciated. You may need torque specs etc. (not that I have a service manual to help you - but someone on here does).

    I believe I should have no problem doing it; it's just funny that those are the instructions they included. Just very general. I will definitely take pics and write really good instructions. I have followed many instructions written by members of this board without any problems, and it's time for me to contribute.

    I was thinking the same thing as you. I want to do the x-pipe really bad, and I thought maybe I should wait untilI figure out what I am going to do about that. I want to make should it does not void the warranty. Either way, I hope it shouldn't be long now. I can't stand the stock shifter.

    IMHO your X-pipe work is actually less of a warranty issue than the shifter... if anything happens to the internals of you T56, they are going to debate whether the aftermarket shifter could be the cause. I can't think of what would go wrong where the X-pipe would be the cause. If you are comfortable with the shifter, then by all means go with the x-pipe. Just my take though.

    Re: Mallett Shifter

    If mine comes by Tues I may consider asking the dealer if they'll do it to avoid hassles, since I have to go in for my trans/diff. Something was unhappy last night pretty sure I busted it up good.
