Porsche GT3 Shifter Install 997.2

Had this nice 997.2 come into the shop for a OE GT3 shifter upgrade. This particular shifter only slightly shortens the throw, but makes the throw much more precise, which makes for much smoother shifting. It also has metal bushings versus the plastic bushings that can fail in the regular shift units. While the 997 SSK is a decent short throw shifter, I feel it is also a little hard on the transmissions, and easier to miss getting the shifter into gear in a rushed situation.

Pulling the center console out to change the unit.

A giant pile of parts.
