Any interest in a production run of short shift kits for manual P1's? They've been out of production for a while, figured I'd gauge interest in a new production run of them.Installation is simple, just pop off the shift cable, clamp down the machined piece, and reattach the shift cable. Pricing depends on the number of orders, $160 for 1-3 kits, $145 for 4-6, $120 for 7+. If you're interested, email me at [email protected], and I'll put you on the list. Estimated ship time is early-mid June

I maybe really wrong here but, was there a propensity for these to break the cable?
Thanks for your concern, unless your shift cables are already defective/damaged, its HIGHLY unlikely the minuscule increase in strains going to snap them. Do you have a link to the thread where thats discussed? Would love to read more into it


I couldn't find much of anything on them. I always wondered why they stopped making them though.

Afaik, the interest in them dropped and machinist rates increased.

An example of two people on MVS

This may have been the one I was thinking of as well. Though I'd agree 2 cases is pretty low and who knows what other circumstances these might have been under.

Now to wonder if this style kit would fit in the p80|m66c converted cars.
I'm not familiar with the m56 tranmission used in the 2.4i s40 in that thread to be honest, I've only ever dealt with m66 cars. Regarding the p80 converted car, if you send me a picture of your shifter assembly i can see if i can make something work. But the kit in the original post is m66 P1 (Gen 2 S40 T5, V50 T5, C70/C30) only

Might in fact be totally different you're right! What's the measurement forward of the shaft itself? I don't have the car near me or I would measure what kind of clearance I have to see if these would work.

send me an email! i'll send you a little table to fill out.

I'm going to stop taking orders Monday 5/20 so if anyone is interested, send an email asap! Currently at the $140/kit price tier, will keep dropping as deposits roll in

Was originally very interested in this but have heard some people say this will put a great deal of stress on the shift cable and cause it to fail. Have you had any binding on your install?

Not a great deal increase, no. It does increase stress on one of the shift cable bushings, but not by a considerable amount. You're looking at maybe reducing the life/replacement interval of the bushing/cables by 10% at the absolute max. Have been using the initial prototype in my C30 for over 20k miles so far with no issue. When installing you can mess the bushing up if you haphazardly remove it, but otherwise it's been fine. If you have any more questions feel free to email me at [email protected]!
