    Hey there guys, just intalled the diesl geek ultra shifter (5 screw version) everything seems to be fine apart from reverse? everytime I shif it in reverse the car moves forward rather than back, anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

    lol, nice one. After the dude from Diesl geek (Jim) got back to me I was able to fix the problem. Just had to adjust the threads on the roads better and now I've got reverse. and man do the gears feel good. Like water lol

    Over the Nuespeed shift Defenatly, and over the standard I would also say yeah, but that's my own personal opinion. I believe that the standard shift has a really long throw and with the diesl geek shift it reduces that as well as making it feel lighter.

    How much was it? I've often wondered if i would like it or not as i agree the standard throw is too long.

    I heard stories if the 2nd, 4th and 6th feeling like they hardly travel back at all.

    to tell you the truth Slug I'm not sure if there is any difference, and Nervus the shift was for like $110 I think, something along those lines, the gears that it's sorted out for me has been first to second, that's just way better
