If you marked the cables then I think we can eliminate that issue.

I also think the side ball goes onto the plastic piece without the OEM's extra "adapter". But I've only done one install (my car) and that was over a year ago so my memory is fuzzy on it.

I also can't remember how I set up my shifter but I think I did allow a little play in it. I suggest you play around with different amounts of tightening of the bushings to see if it helps.

Hate to say it, but I think you're SOL on using your old shifter. Again, go over the install and adjust the bushings. Even set it up loose and see how the shifter feels. If you still hate it, then I guess you're in the 5%. I don't think you'll have a hard time finding someone to trade you for a stock shifter.

BTW, just so everyone else doesn't think this is some half-assed shifter...Porsche sells the same shifter except that it's anodized black, has a "P" stamped on it and costs $400.
