Understanding ssk reduction numbers

The long throw and imprecision of my '01 S's shifter is the only part of the car that I really can't stand.

I installed the standard 997 shifter, which is supposed to be a 20% reduction from the stock 986, but it is still not enough.

I'm getting the B&M ssk for Xmas, so now the question is: which console should I install it in for the maximum reduction in shift throw, the original, or the 997?

B&M quotes a 35% reduction whether you install it in a 986 or 997 console, but if the standard 997 console starts out as 20% lower, how can that be?

What am I missing?
