    what do you have it in a k5 or pickup??
    if it is in a pickup do you have any issues with it hitting the seat or dash when shifting?
    i'm also interested in seeing pic's.

    Thanks. I'll check back to sneak a peek. What is your opinion of the shifter? Worth the cash or not?

    Here is a picture of the Z-gate shifter in mine. I still have to trim the plastic. The Z-gate sucks, you get what you pay for. [​IMG]

    I have it in a pickup. That was one of my concerns because my fiance is only 5'2" so she has to move the seat up all the way, but I still have plenty of clearance.

    I definately think it is worth the money. It is very solid. Really I don't have a bad thing to say about it.

    I've been thinking about the same thing. My brother had a Megashifter in his Camaro years ago and I loved it. I'll be interested in seeing the pics as well.

    Isent shifting it you self really bad for the tranny? I heard it will trow a pump fast if you do. BTW If you are gonna shift em though the B&M has a reverse lock out so you dont gotta worry about that anymore and you can still hit neutral.
