got my mantapart isuzu shifter today. this thing is awesome, very short throws from what i can tell. the entire thing is adjustable and the rod end pillowball feel on everything is EPIC. i simply cannot WAIT to get this in my car and try it out. id like to thread the end and put a billet t-handle on it. still need to get it under a console and see how it fits...

forgive the @!#$ty PHONE pics, i do not yet have a mobile computer with phone app.

it looks kinda flimsy brad, not gonna lie


still rubber isolators on the bottom as well, idk why they did that

I don't like how the main upright support is just a bar with no triangulation at all

My thoughts exactly. Although it is adjustable as hell which is pretty cool. Interested to see how you like it once it's installed.

Being that it's tubing, it's stronger than you'd think.



Paying someone to install parts and bragging about it being fast, is like watching someone bang your wife and being proud to raise their kids.

im with tim, it definitely LOOKS flimsy but its solid.

as for the rubber bushings i thought the same thing! LOL WHY?! doesnt the b&m come with aluminum bushings for it? wonder if i could just snag those off my other shifter (thats buried in my closet) and use them on it...

and what do you mean no triangulation?? i dont know if it would help what you mean or not but the big rod end that is threaded into that main shaft can be screwed in/out. that what you mean or??

He means no gussets to brace/strengthen the vertical tubes. (At least that's what I think he means....)

just compared it with a stock shifter. this thing is WAY taller. even if it does fit under the console, id say 3-4 inches of the cage will be above it. then the long as rod.... so yea. race car status only unless i cut the rod way down in which case i may be able to fit it under the boot.

but didnt i read that its not a good idea to mess with the upper shaft length due to effort or something? if thats not an issue im fine with lopping 4 inches off the rod.

PJ actually mass produced these, he became an overnight millionaire. Using his new found success, he quit his job and moved on to making kick ass parts for exotics and high end imports.
