Re: where to buy cheap heatshield and short shift kit for 2.0 (ventorider)

Well if you want a really cheap short shift kit, make it yourself. You don't have to be very handy to figure it out. You should be able to find flat bar (3/16x1") at Home Depot etc. Remove the shift linkage piece that runs front to back on the car, it has two bends in it and a pin with a clip in one end and a bolt on the other. Bend the new piece to match the shape of the original one, this could be the only tough part if you don't have a way to heat up the metal. Cut the new piece 1" longer than the original piece and drill a hole in the new piece the same distance from the end as the old piece, now 1" longer. You can try other lengths and mulitple holes, just be sure not to go to long as you will hit the side of the tranny case if it is too long.
I have been trying to locate a picture of the past I am talking about but with little success. If someone can post a picture, I'm sure it will be much clearer what I am talking about.
Give it a coat of some nice paint and no one will know you made it yourself for about $5
