I have been tricking my v out and have my sights on the magnacharger. What recomendations as far as the shifter go? B & M , UUC or just changing out the whole system for one of these exedy setups? Are any of you guys using the Exedy setup? I know that there is a Mallet car running a exedy clutch. Any feedback welcome and as always, thanks for the knowledge.

I recommend the UUC... it makes driving this car WAY better...
I have NOT, however, drivin' the B&m shifter.

UUC hands down.

U... U...C... with a lot of emphasis on the UUC.

Thanks. I have driven a v with the UUC. It felt a little notchy but I liked it. I haven't had any experience with the others.

I think the only reason some of the guys have gone B&M is pricing. The UUC is a better developed unit, no question. If you can handle it(HAHA), do the UUC.

I drove StealthV's car with the UUC yesterday and couldn't believe the difference from my stock shifter. That'll be my next addition.

How tuff is the UUC to install?
UUC sends really good and simple instructions but it doesn't matter on the how b/c they all go in the same way no matter which shifter you chose.

I have an Exedy clutch in my Vet, single plate version. It is not nice to drive on the street, chatters, grabby. I kept burning out stock clutches but if I need another clutch I'll go with a stock clutch. I don't know how it would do in the V, of if mine is faulty in some way, but I'm told that's just the way it is.
I have the B&M and have never tried the UUC, but for half the price it is an awesome shifter. Some say it is even crisper than the UUC. There is some noise with the B&M though.

I just installed the B&M a few days ago. It does make noise. When you don't play music and roll up the windows, you'll hear it transfer tranny noises. However when you have music playing, I couldn't hear the tranny noises. Either way, get the UUC.

Ya mon, UUC. I love it to death. Denniscars drove my V and declared that he thought the UUC felt "Too mechanical". But for me, I love the fact that my shifter can find the next gear with no hunting.
And Magnacharger fer shure. :thumbsup:

I had the UUC in my E36 M3 so I wouldn't hesitate to buy one for the V. I went to the UUC site and they are backordered right now :P. I guess that's a good sign.

I also felt the UUC seemed notchy, not that it's hard to get through the gears, it is much easier. But I agree that it did feel mechanical. HOWEVER, that was sitting in the car, up in the air, in the garage.
Real world experience has changed my mind big time! In a visceral sense, with everything moving and feeling the road as you drive along with the sounds and eveything enveloping you, whatever thought of this shifter being mechanical is gone. It is a very slick unit that works wonderfully in any type of driving. Well worth the $400.
