    Katech Shifter vs. UUC

    Otherday I had the chance to feel a Katech shifter.

    FELT GREAT! Since I know nothing of shifters.

    What if any are the differences between the Katech and the UUC?

    I have had the Katech for 4 months or so now....HATE IT! Love the throw, but the noise is unbearable. Save your money, the Katech is metal, to metal to metal meaning that there is no sound dampening like the UUC. Metal tranny to metal shift rod to metal shifter....all bad!!!! I bought the UUC instead, goes in this weekend.

    UUC has NO noise!!! If you leave your hand with some pressure on the stick you get alil noise...
    and a GREAT shift... Very solid and crisp... I say UUC all the way!

    After changing out the shift knob and wrapping dynamat around the stalk my Katech still makes some noise but only when I leave my hand on it, applying pressure one way or the other. TPIS flywheel is on the way so I'm seriously considering taking the Katech out and going with the UUC.

    Dynamat, that's an interesting idea. How much dynamat did you use? Can anyone think of anything else that might work as well or better - foam tape, anything?
