Never had a shifter before this one so i can't say. The car shifts perfectly fine under normal driving conditions, but once you get into it and attempt to shift while the tires are still spinning in 2ND it will lock in 2ND when you attempt the shift to third. Once it does this you are stuck with coming home in 2ND gear or crawl under it on the side of the road.
To line up the shifter i used the plastic pin alignment that came with shifter, then after that i have used a 1/4 drill bit. I have checked alignment a couple of times. Maybe i should just drive it like someone with good sense.
Oh, the shifter came from Ground Up.
