    installing a short shifter should be fairly easy just take your time pulling your center console apart and not breaking anything. Other then that its a basic and simple bolt on and agreed ebay is fairly cheap and you'll be very happy with the pro 5.0 although in the begining its a bit weird how its angled, you get use to it fairly quickly and not missing any gears anymore is always good, lol.

    Very easy to install, just a matter of removing the screws from the center consoles and pulling them out.

    Once you have the shift knob and boots off, you can unbolt the shifter from the trans and install the new one. Make sure to use Permatex Ultra Black RTV to seal the shifter to the transmission. They use Red RTV in the article, but I don't think its oil resistant like the Ultra Black version is.

    Heres a good writeup on the install:
