Just did mine today, with bushings. Took 45 minutes, not as bad of an install as I thought.
Instant gratification. The best mod available yet! Shifting improved exponentially. I was doubtful at first, but its like driving another car. Almost Miata like, but with 6 gears. Butter... silky smooth butter, no longer wimpy and lucid...
I just recived and installed the TWM short shifter and
weighted shift knob, and I must say out of the few kits that i have had for my 92
Toyota Paseo, this one is the BEST!!!!!! i am really, really impressed with the
quality of the shifting now, and the quality of the short shifter and knob. I am
telling all my friends about TWM and i am even going to be letting some test drive
my car so they car see the difference.
I installed the TWM Performance short shifter for the Mazda Protege 5 into
my car last night. Let me say, the difference is amazing. There are no more
questions when shifting. When I shift, it goes into gear. No slop, no vague
I really appreciate the great customer service and quick response.
I had the short shifter installed yesterday. One word to describe it: AWESOME!
I should have done it a long time ago. The throws are so much shorter and the
whole mechanism has a more solid and quality feel compared to stock. Thanks for great service and a great product!
Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I purchased your classic stainless
weighted shift knob for my 2002 WRX sedan well over a year ago, and it has been the
best modification I've made to the car. The quality is top notch, the look is
great, and best of all: it has NEVER come loose since I installed it, not once!
That is VERY rare for an aftermarket shift knob.
Great product, excellent fit and finish - I have recommended it many times on the
I would really like to thank everyone. I just recieved my shifter today
after ordering it on Thursday .. very quick delivery and awsome shift. I love it and
will never use another shifter. I will recommend it to everyone who is looking for them.
Hi, my name is Leonard and i just purchased your stage 2 short
shifter for my '05 Scion tC, and i just wanted to write you and say
Thank You for the easy installation instructions. It took me about an hour to
do, and had no problems at all. After installation I immediately noticed
the height difference and soon after noticed the great reduction in length from one gear to another. I am completely satisfied with my product and
will highly recommend you to all my friends for there futher upgrade
needs. Thank You also to the great people at TWM for answering any and
all of my questions i had.
I have bought TWM generation
2 short shifter a while ago, and boy I like it. Its a very great product
from my point of view. Definetly much shorter than stock shifter, and
throws are definetly shorter. I would definetly recommend this to everyone
Also, recently I have bought a TWM shift knob, which is weighted stainless steel ( I believe
its 150 grams *edit for accuracy: the
shift knob is 500g*, or something like that). In any case, the
shift knob is pretty heavy, and its much easier to shift with it than
with stock one.
My props to twmperformance.com
staff. Keep it up! Great to have good people around!
I recently installed your
shifter in my Mazda 6 along with the weighted stainless steel shift
knob and the difference is phenomenal! The stock shifter felt vague
and mushy compared to you part, now I can shift through the gears
much more quickly and with more confidence.
I'd never hesitate to purchase
another product from you in the future. Customer support was great
and the installation was a snap.
I just got my short shifter
yesterday and I spent an hour installing it last night. To my complete
amazement (I've never done any work on my cars personally) I did it
all myself. It fits great and I had no problems whatsoever. Your install
guide was so helpful by the way. 100% satisfaction guys. The piece
itself is really great too, my mechanic buddy said it's one of the
nicest aftermarket shifters he's ever seen.
just wanted to let you know this stuff. I love the short shifter,
it's just awesome! And again thank you for originally getting back
to me so quickly, it really impressed me. If you have any new Corolla
products coming up anytime in the future I would love to hear about
James Demis -
I really enjoy both
the shifter and knob I purchased from you. Quality and
performance are top-notch and I feel like the money was very well spent.
I recommend both parts to anyone who asks and if I had it to do over again,
I wouldn't hesitate at all.
the short shifter kit for our project car, the 1990
Toyota Celica 4wd Turbo. The kit was well packaged, everything on the
checklist was in the box, and the instructions were top notch. We were
impressed to say the least!
The entire swap
from pulling the car into the shop, to driving it out
took less than 30 minutes, and the difference is nothing less than
astounding. It must be half the distance of the original "boat
ore" this car
comes with. While the force to shift gears has noticeable increased,
nothing worse than the stock shifter on my Mazda Rx-7, and my wife can
drive the car with ease. Along with the increase in effort though, has
a MUCH more positive shift engagement. The pattern feels MUCH more clearly
defined, and the shift gates seem easier to hit.
was quick, quality of the stick top notch and it was well
assembled. Prior to installing it, we gave it to our in-house machinist
an inspection. He was impressed with the work and attention to detail,
gave it the thumbs up (a rare event to be certain).
is by far one of the most honest products we've come across
for a while. It promises nothing that it doesn't deliver completely,
top notch quality (very important to us) and priced extremely competitively!
I'd wish you
good luck, but with a product like this I can't see how you
could possibly go wrong!
I very rarely
write to a supplier of parts, but I want to say that I am
delighted with the shift kit I recently purchased. The Installation
easy, due to the complete instructions, and the difference in shifting
hard to describe. Not only are the throws a lot shorter, but it seems
though the vagueness that was inherent with the stock shifter is no
there. Congratulations on a product well designed, easy to install and
fairly priced. I hope that you continue to develop aftermarket parts

I went ahead and purchased a TWM shifter. As others have mentioned,
it's a quality piece. It comes with instructions, washers/bolts, a special
tool to help with installation and the TWM sticker. They've been able
to offer a product that others do not, with quality, at an attractive
price. See their site for ordering information.
The minute a
sat in the car, I immediately proceeded to shift the car into the different
gear positions. Instant gratification! The throw was smooth and sure,
it almost felt as though it were a different car. The next item on my
list was to see how it would perform on the road. I think I drove around
for an hour, just for the hell of it. Each shift was sure and the movement
was as good, if not better than stock. The shifter stayed in its place
without any unwanted movement. Its fit and finish was proven as I repeatedly
threw the shifter into each gear, while my foot stayed heavy on the
All I got to
say is thanks!.... this has got to be one of the best mods for the money.....
I chirp the tires under lift (6k) all the time easily... not that that
its a good thing... but at least I know power is getting transferred
very quickly..... No grinds, it goes right in like stock.... it looks
nice... very short... the install was easy after reading it a couple
times.... I was always able to keep it in lift but for people who have
trouble, the TWM will help you out alot...shifting at 8300 quick with
finesse shifting lands me well above 6k around the 6200 area...skiiiirrrt
and I take off...thanks.. I recommend it to any GT-S or GT owner
I got my TWM
shifter today! I just finished installing it and testing it out. Here's
my review of the install & my initial thoughts on the shifter itself.
What you get:
* The shifter
* 4 aluminum spacers
* 4 bolts
* 4 washers
* A clip
* A cup remover tool
* An instruction manual
The install went very smoothly. The included instructions are very detailed
and easy to understand.
most difficult parts were removing the little round clip from the side
of the shifter and re-installing the clip on the bottom of the shifter.
The round clip on the side broke when I took it off - luckily, TWM included
a replacement in the kit. Total install time was about 1 1/2 hours.
It takes a little more muscle to shift gears now, but it's really cool.
is a great, easy mod and I highly recommend TWM. The shifter is high-quality
and you can't beat the price. TWM's customer service is quite good.
Karel is happy to answer any questions you have.
