    Custom short throw shifter for '02 Saturn SC2?

    I have looked for short throw shifter all over and have yet to find one. I know about village machining service but I don't think they are in business anymore. If anyone knows where I can buy one, or even sources for a schematic/fabrication plan I would appreciate it very much. I plan on swapping in a stage 2 clutch and lightened flywheel, so before I do that I want to have a short throw shifter ready to install to complete my new transmission set up.

    I can't access the page for whatever reason. But if you are talking about VMS150 I have messaged him, waiting now for a positive response.

    They were doing business as of last year. He welded the pin in my differential when the car was apart.

    To make a true short shifter, it takes a decent amount of work. Mine has the base raised to the max (barely fits under console and boot is modified to fit) and the cable attachments are lowered the same amount the base is raised (prevents cable getting bent). Gate selector arm rides on ball bearings, the shifter pivot case is shimmed, and the neutral spring has an extension all this to remove all the slop. I only have a super minor slop back and forth from cable free play. Of course I cut the stock as well and grinded it for the stock shift knob. So it can get crazy.
