Who needs this part?

Hey there Guys,

I can run a batch of these off if there are people in need of them?

It is simply a modified OEM part, I know, because I was there when it was thought up.

I would be happy to save you all a bit of money on these. How many people are in need of them?

Call it $150.00 shipped? That will save you $50.00 on it. Actually a little more with shipping.

Get me a total number needed and I will get them made up. No biggie.

I have a 70,000 mi 2001 S with a perfect working 6 speed Is this part recommended to avoid eventual 2nd gear pop out failure or is it meant as a band-aid fix if it happens ?

I could not have said it better. If you have no damage this part will help to prevent it from happening. What it essentially does is allow the operating sleeves to engage the gear slightly deeper, which gives a more positive engagement and more material for the operating sleeve to work with.

If you have some damage though, it will allow in some cases a bandaid, and help delay the eventual rebuild.

Pretty inexpensive insurance, if you ask me.

I appreciate the help, thanks. The two that were grabbed up have left and are on their way today, I sent them Fedex so you should see them in 2-3 days.

Anyone else in need of one?
