This would be different from a "short throw" shifter, which I believe is what the original poster is talking about. Just FYI, a shifter is a basic lever, so shortening the height reduces mechanical advantage, so it would actually require more effort to shift the gears. I've done custom mods like that in the past, and usually end up just wanting to go back to stock and deal with the height rather than dealing with a notchy and heavy shifter.the s5 still needs a shorter shifter, it's still too tall . . .
