You're welcome!!Man, I finally got this installed today.
Like others have said, it's kind of a pain to do just because of the tight space. Honestly, the hardest part of the entire mod was getting the old pieces off.... Between prying away at the old bushing (which is in a hard to reach spot) and prying up the old shift control arm (mine was completely stuck to the shaft, took me and my old man 45 minutes with a hammer and a tuning fork to get the thing off), it's just rough to get the old pieces off. Honestly, didn't need to take any other parts off the car. Left everything as-is and just worked around everything. Probably didn't help, but it also wasn't keeping the bushing and control arm stuck in place either. Fiat did a great job engineering these pieces.
But reassembly was easier. Managed to not lose either of the tiny wire clips, and adjusting the position of the stud was a breeze. Everything went together smoothly. And now the car shifts beautifully! I went with the 32% reduction, and it's awesome. The throw is nice and snappy, the gear engagement feels more firm, and I can shift even more quickly than I already was! Think it's time for the CDV delete....
Thanks Travis and the whole Deyeme team for this. It's a simple solution that doesn't cost a fortune.
The CDV Delete and the short shift control arm are a great combo, and makes for some tire chirping fun
