Initially when I installed it the shifts felt really stiff. I drive it like that for a few days hoping the shifts would lighten up but they didn't. I did some digging online, searched on the manufacturer website and found instructions on how you resolve my issue. So initially I had the adjustment set to the shortest throw. I had to move it back about a half inch. After that, the shift throws felt OEM, just shorter. So far it's been great product and makes driving a bit more enjoyable.
