    1" shorter A4 Shifter

    I have always felt that the A4 shifter was too tall so i went ahead and cut about 1" off of it.
    it is still 100% fully functional and 100% nicer IMO

    Sorry for bad pictures it was too dark...
    Before i started stock height



    and 1" lowered!

    no i dont have any pictues of the moding because i knew they wouldnt come out and my cutting job looks like sh*t...
    but this is pretty much what the sifter shaft looked like before and after cut i just pre measured everything and wrote them down for referance.

    Looks good, ...,


    I've got one already cut, available for sale over on LS1Tech under the same username.
    I've cut about a half-dozen of them over the last year or so.

    Go to Ebay & find the Grand Am boot too.
    The cut shifter, even tho it's only an inch, really does improve the look with the stock knob & other knobs.
    I found a used Grand Prix knob with the 'traction control' button in it, sent to a guy to have it recovered, & use the button for my line-lock now.

    ya 1" makes a world of difference... my cutting job would of been way nicer if i would of taken the shifter out of the car! i left everything in the car and covered the interior so it was kinda tough doing it all inside the car!

    I like how that looks. Good job. I too think the factory shifter is too tall.
