okay so im about to rebuild my zf5 in my 97 Powerstroke and i am pretty sure somewhere on the site i saw something about a quick shift kit for the manual? it was a few months ago and ive been looking for the thread and can not find it. Maybe im an idiot and there is no such thing lol But if there is could someone give me a link to site or company that sells them? :dunno:

I've done research on short shifts for the 6spd f250's, and they have all been negative reviews. They put the gears too close together and it's too easy to mis shift. For a truck, with the huge throws and sloppy gates we have, I'd stick with stock.

NONSENSE..........Had one in my 2000 and now in my 2006. They don't change the position of the gears, it is done with a change in fulcrum position. Talk to someone who knows what they are talking about..........................

Do you have the one from midwest transmission? I assume you like yours right?
