B&M Short Shift noise

Just installed the B&M short shift. its short and fun to drive but engaging gears 1,3, and 5 make a clunk noise which sounds like the shifter pounds against something. is this because the travel is less and the new metal components hit or is it something else? the shifts are stiffer but other than that its all good. Just bothered but the pounding noise.

My B&M did that too during the short time it was installed on my car. It wasn't so much a noise, but you could feel it clunk everytime you selected a gear.

If the sound you're describing is coming from the shifter as opposed to the transmission, you probably need to adjust the linkage. It sounds like the linkage or the rod is hitting the housing of the shifter, which means that it's not moving the linkage far enough. Take off the armrest and play with the rod location. It will go away with the correct adjustment.
