There's a reason that performance race cars are invariably equipped with manual transmissions. That reason is control. Unlike an automatic transmission which generally shifts at moderate RPM ranges set by the factory, a manual transmission allows a drive to shift at times of his choosing in order to take full advantage of the engine's power curve at critical moments. In competition driving, often the difference between the Winner's Circle and second place can come down to a matter of seconds. That's why professionally racers often install a short shifter like the Pilot Short Shifter. A long shifter such as most OEM factory units may make it easier to go from one gear to another, but increases the time between shifts. With a Pilot Short Shifter, you'll be able to switch gears much faster because of the shorter throw and travel distance. Installing a Pilot Short Shifter is a fairly easy and straight-forward process. If you've noticed that your stock shifter has gotten sloppy lately, chances are you need new bushings anyway, and this short shifter from Pilot will solve that problem very quickly.
