i installed my hpa ss today and it was by far the easiest thing i have ever done on my car. the hardest thing was trying to get the stock shifter off of that mount. i had to tap it w/ a hammer and socket to knock it loose then me and my friend had to pull at the same time. if it weren't for that it probably would have taken 10 minutes for the whole install. i have no problems whatsoever with it, not even those loud 1-2 gear sounds. i love it and definitely agree w/ everyone else who has it and recommend it.
