Does anyone know if the mopar short throw shifter from 2000 to 2002 neons will fit in the SRT-4? I know the tran is completely diffrnt- just a thought. I might test fit mine from my 2001 ACR this weekend- I'll letcha know.

SRT-4 is not a short throw shifter, just feels a tad shorter due to the shorter height of the shift knob. There are currently no SRT-4 specific short throw's available. 2g short shifter will work, with an aftermarket knob

"The performance-enhanced design continues down on the floor where a new satin silver cue ball shift knob tops a short-throw shifter that is surrounded by a boot made of the same textured carbon-fiber-look leather as the steering wheel."

"The shifter for the five-speed manual is a serious departure from other Neons we've driven. It's relatively short throw and very direct, "

thanx for the info Brett- you sound like you know what you're talkin about- I just got done with my stereo/amp install, so this weekend i'll try the short throw from mopar from my 2001 ACR- it's really smooth & short/direct-

anyone know what shifter knob would match the boot? (ie:carbon fiber look)

Lowering it also this weekend with the mopar autox springs. CAN'T WAIT!

More like dumb ass idiots.
It isnt a short throw shifter and anyone who has driven a car equipped with short throw can attest to that :)

I had an adjustable ss in my 01 Sentra SE, and the stock one in the SRT doesn't come close. Sometimes it feels like rowing a boat lol..........

Same here.

It wouldn't have mattered if they tried to disagree w/ me, I know what a STS is, and this aint one!
