This week on Money Pit, we’re replacing the 26 year old oem shifter with a Short Shifter. Along the way we’ll take a look at how short shifters actually make shifts shorter and we’ll see if it’s a worthy mod.
I’m also going to start including links to all the stuff that we use on the show for anyone that wants to check them out!
Link to the short shifter kit:

Doesn't a short shifter feel heavier than stock?

Dude, you changed where the heat shielding schold be. I don't know, but i think that the heat will come off the transmission and damage the shift boot, and it needs to be mounted below the shift boot to prevent that.

What about a hearse shift? Not sure if that is the correct name but it's the one where it basically just shifts by going straight back and up to downshift? Maybe you could help us understand what double clutching is.

@LazerLord10 maybe I can be tuned out if it's a feature
LazerLord10 Vor Monat
@Isaac Salazar Double-whammy for me is that my car has a 'feature' where the idle point changes depending on if the engine is warm or cold, so the revs sometimes drop super fast, and other times not at all. I guess I just need to be more gradual with the clutch from 1st to second.

No they aren't worth it, in fact they'll like destroy one's transmission sooner. If one wants to shift quickly, get a sequential gearbox with straight cut gears and live with the noise.

Is there a reason to get a short throw shifter if you don't also get a lighter flywheel? I find that often (especially in my 5 speed) I'm limited by how quickly the car will rev up or down, not how quickly I can shift.
