    Easier shifting mod

    http://www.svtperformance.com/forums...hifts-try.html

    Just found this. I'll prolly give it a shot tomorrow at work. It's makes sense, as it just takes some of the preload off. Figured I'd post it for anyone who might want to try it.

    Let us know how hard the bolt is to get. Also snap some pics. If you can.

    Re: Easier shifting mod

    I tried 2, then 1, then took it out. It put about 2 inches of slack in the shifter in neutral, but was tight in gear, but it made shifting a lot smoother. I just couldn't handle the slack. I have a built trans, so this could've been modified before, which would explain why it introduced so much slack. it was worth a shot.

    I used a 3/8 impact wobble extension, a 3/8 ratchet and a 15/16 socket. I tied up about thirty minutes between putting 2 in, then changing to 1, and then back with none. I'd def say try it as it only takes a few minutes and a few dollars. I'm pretty sure my trans has a different setup from stock, which is why it didn't work.

    It's a 15/16 bolt near the top on the passenger side. It's right below the front shifter location, and it's pretty much the only bolt on that side. Just look up "anti venom" mod on google. Plenty of threads about it on numerous forums.

    Just did this mod today - have the pissnuoff short shifter & it was a bit tougher than I'd like to get in/out of gear - this solved the issue. Much easier shifts now. I do notice that its easier to move the shifter side to side in nuetral as the op noted, but is an acceptable and relatively non-issue for me. Use 2 M-20 crush washers. Took less than an hour including jacking & test drive.

    Same here, I didn't like this mod with my built tranny either. Way to sloppy.

    Here is a picture of what you what to modify. On the right you will see where the detent applies pressure to the selector (or whatever it is called).
