number one is the kit came with bolts rather than rivets to secure the rubber isolation boot on the shifter, since rivets sit nice and flush with the surface and these bolts dont, the center console isnt sitting right and i cant pop down a portion of the radio bezel, i think i should just tear it all apart again and buy the 3/16th rivets i originally had to drill out to remove to access the shifter and this i hope fixes the problem. my second more serious problem is although almost all the gears all work like butter, sliding in like never before, very positive feeling but reverse is a bitch!!!! i have to use both hands to pull the shifter all the way over and up into gear.1,2,3,4,5,6,all take minimal effort but to get into R the shift has this ungodly strong spring tensioner in it which makes me have to use both hands to shift in to reverse. the car has been in storage unstarted for over 3 months in a cold garage. do you think it would be different if the car is warmed, i dont but its wishful thinking. this shifter is the newer version without the adjustable stops built into it so i am at a loss. please help.
