I had my local speed shop install my SSK today, was not the easiest process as I was helping the whole way through. We had the car on a lift, lowered the tranny and exhaust for a bit more room. I'm sure you can find a way if "down4it" made things work. Took me just under two hours to finish, I'm much happier with my shorter shifts.

I believe both the uuc and rogue kits will be full kits and not just levers. I called uuc on friday and they told me the kit will be ready in two weeks. I think AutoSolutions has a full kit for our cars now too.

My kit arrived tonight and I snapped a few photos

It does look like they raised the pivot point on the carrier compared to the photos of the stock one.

It may be a few weeks before I can get it installed but expect a review when Im done.

BTW No instructions and no clips.

Did you email Omar directly? He did respond to me at 11:00 PM the night I emailed him and he sent me a tracking number yesterday for the clips and instructions to arrive today.

Good luck.

They did return my second email . THey indicated that the missing parts and instructions would be sent out soon.

Apparently this can be done without dropping the trans, but you do need to get the exhaust and heat shield out of the way, so i'm told.
