    PRO 5.0 Shifter (several ?'s)

    is there anything i need to no about this shifter before i install it... anything any of you guys noticed that will help me... i see alot of threads praising these shifters i just need to no if theres any secrets to the install and/or setup, or even if you can adjust these shifters, or need to?....

    my car with the stock shifter takes for ever to go into reverse i have to push towards reverse once, ease off and push into reverse again to get it to go... will this shifter solve that problem?? i also have this problem when im haulin ass on the expressway and go to hit 5th, the block off that normaly stops you form hittin reverse at lower speeds seems to disappear and sometimes i graze reverse!! will the pro 5.0 make it harder for me to do this or inable it all together hopefully???


    ok alot of ?'s here i see as i re- read but i appreciate all and any input

    thanks in advance guys...

    I just installed mine this past weekend. I love this thing! Why didn't I do this earlier?

    Here is are the installation instructions I used which also addresses concerns many people had after installing.

Possibly, but I need to know more info. What happens if you put it in reverse rapidly? It wont go in?i also have this problem when im haulin ass on the expressway and go to hit 5th, the block off that normaly stops you form hittin reverse at lower speeds seems to disappear and sometimes i graze reverse!! will the pro 5.0 make it harder for me to do this or inable it all together hopefully??? Reverse should be electronically locked out. This is something a shifter wont solve. If Reverse is 'blocked' (from your other question) and you need to fiddle with it to go into reverse, then Id say the shifter wont help with that either.

    DONT CUT THE #6 BOOT LIKE PRO 5.0 instructions says to, unless you want 20% more tranny noise!!! just leave it the way it was on the stick!

    Trust me you will regret it. They say its restrictive--mebbe on a 100% track car i guess.

    dude the install is very simple, i can change one in like 30 mins and have it all back together, your reverse synchro is prolly going out, that is what my guess would be for you reverse problem

    THIS SHIFTER IS WORTH EVERY BIT OF THE 165 SHIPPED I PAID FOR IT.... HOW DID I EVER DRIVE MY CAR BEFORE YESTERDAY!!!!!!

    seriously... the sturdy feeling while shifting is amazing.....

    all hail pro 5.0!!!


    thanks for the tips i dint cut the boot liek you suggested and i think your a fuckin genious for not cuttin yours and perhaps starting a trend...i think havin that boot tight on the shaft (insert joke here) cuts down on vibrations as well as the obvious noise... i notice way less tranny noise now with this shifter...


    ok im done orgasming< (spelling?) about my shifter

    John Deere LS1, did you by chance use some rubberized paper gasket on the base of the shifter?

    Glad to hear you are enjoying your new shifter!
