  1. Easy Peezy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Aug 2018

    15 minute install. Definitely improved the "Slushbox" feel on my Corrado's gear throws. Also, when I took the OEM piece off it had a big crack in it, so I guess I defused a ticking time bomb as well!

  2. buy nice or buy twice! 5 Star Review

    Super high quality!

  3. Good part, could use a couple helps in package 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Nov 2017

    spring clip is a bit tricky (dropped twice, but I had a small strong magnet), it would be nice to have a small tube of grease for linkage, adjustment instructions would be helpful. I had no reverse until I adjusted all the way toward the back of car. thanks

  5. sweet part 5 Star Review

    I'm honestly glad my plastic piece broke. After installing this I am super impressed. The gears are much closer from side to side. It's so nice. I'm also glad it will never break again.

    -- Thanks Adam. Yeah Ive been running this part since 2001 on my 1992 Corrado SLC, havent had that problem again :) Take care let us know what else you need !

  10. Works as advertised 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Dec 2015

    Replaced the shift linkage on a 93 corrado. The part arrived quickly and was identical to what they show on the website. The part fit perfectly and was easy to install. There was a noticeable difference in the amount of side movement on the shifter. Great product that works as advertised!
