I already looked for every opportunity to drive my 996, but after putting the SSK I find myself volunteering to run all errands. The install was quite straight forward with the help of a few YouTube videos. I would highly recommend this upgrade, especially if you’re considering replacing a worn out stock shifter.

I have a 2004 996 GT3 and have owned the car since new. After 14.5 years of ownership, I decided to replace the worn yet still relatively new gear shifter with something a bit more sporty (shorter throws). I'm totally blown away by this new short shift kit, it entirely transformed my GT3!! This is the way the gears should shift right out of the factory.

The short shifter improves the driving experience. With the Tube Exhaust upgrade, there is no craving for the latest and greatest 911 Turbo. See my separate review on the Tube Exhaust.

Best money I've spent on my car yet. This should be standard in all Porsches. Tighter and shorter!

Big improvement over stock shifter - shorter, more positive throws. Still uses the same nylon bushings as original rather than the steel bushings found on some aftermarket shifters. However, this item is far easier to install since it includes the shifter console and cable ends. Also, some other aftermarket shifters require machining of shifter console bores or the steel bearings to obtain proper fit.

Easy installation and I had no experience doing anything like this. Hardest part was finding all of the screws holding the console in place. Took less than 2 hours.

Received my product in timely manner and well packaged.

Kit came with no instructions, fortunately google sent me to Planet 9 with one contributor having step by step instructions of how to expose the shifter and install it. Would have been nice for DYIers to have some instructions of what to do. Otherwise, shifter has been great!

This is a lot of bang for the buck. Exceeds my expectations, shifts smooth yet precise. Any Porsche with a S on its badge should come with the short shifter.
