There's a guy on Volvospeed who's making a batch of custom short shift plates for the M56L and H 5 speed transmissions. 850 and x70 models. I just ordered a kit plus new brass shifter bushings to improve the crispness of the shifter.<p><A HREF="http://volvospeed.com/vs_forum/index.php/topic/120471-short-throw-shifter-plates-for-m56l-or-h" TARGET="_blank">http://volvospeed.com/vs_forum...-or-h</A>/<p>original thread.<p><A HREF="http://volvospeed.com/vs_forum/index.php/topic/119961-short-throw-shifter-plates-for-m56l-or-h" TARGET="_blank">http://volvospeed.com/vs_forum...-or-h</A>/

Re: If any of you Manual Transmission guys are looking to shorten your throws... (C70drvr)

Are you going to intall it yourself? Sounds interesting. I'd be curious to see it on your car before buying it.<p>Cheers,<p>Luc

I installed mine today, took about 2 hours.<p>YOU GUYS DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE MISSING!<p>It's incredible! The throws are shortened and the shifter feels so crisp. Like a different car, a better car <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>For $56 including the brass bushings, it's one of the best bang-for-the-buck performance mods out there. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">
