I have driven plenty of these t56 swapped cars now, and one of my main complaints was the "tightness" of the Sikky billet shifter. After a few discussions, and a few emails back and forth I am really pleased to say they have made this relocation shifter feel WAY better. If you have the first revision and swap to this one, you will notice a substantial difference in overall shift feel. This feels very similar to the stock t56 magnum shifter now, without any added tightness.
In this video I try and explain the main differences between the old and improved shifter. The main differences are Delrin bushings and the rear boot has been swapped out for a much softer material which was the major culprit of the tight feel.
If you bought a Supra/SC300 GR700-GR900-GR1000 kit or even just a plain shifter from me, you can contact me and I'll get you an return RMA# and you can get this upgraded for free of charge thanks to the guys at Sikky!
Also any orders from this week forward also will get this shifter, I got a bunch of new ones stock on Friday so all of them now have this better feel. I also sent my other ones on the shelf back to Sikky to be upgraded.
