Great product!
Just like everyone else said. Easy to install, performs well. Took five minutes to put this on while I was installing the full cold air kit. Great little mod!

Shortened throws
I have been working on cars for 40 years. This product works as described. Shifter effort does increase and throws are shortened. My only criticism is I would have counter sunk nuts in the bottom of the bracket and screwed the screws from the top. Would make the install a snap rather than 30 minutes to feel how to get the Allen wrench to line up with the screw head. Just my 2 cents.

Money Well Spent
Great product, easy to install. Expect to remove the shifter weight for installation. Its make the installation much easier. Should have come from the factory like this.

A nice, inexpensive upgrade
This is a nice, inexpensive upgrade for the 2013+ Focus ST. The installation is fairly easy (have some SAE Allen keys handy= 5/32, I believe it was, for the new bolts. You will also need some Loctite for the bolts, which is not provided in the kit. The instructions provided were pretty decent, but they could have mentioned that size Allen key to help. Now I have! You're welcome... This firms up the shifter nicely, and really shortens the throws. 1-2 shift is noticeably chunkier, but otherwise it feels great. Note: effort WILL increase with this- you are changing the fulcrum of your shifter cable, so this is a physical reality. It's not bad at all, and it's more like what a sporty car's shifter should feel like. Not bad for a cable shifter! Well done, Steeda!

Great add on
Great feel and throws are very positive and direct. Its wasn't a 20 min install as stated and had to remove shift lever to install the bracket. Directions don't mention this step but I could find no way to install without removing shift lever arm. All and all, not too bad to do, but if installing one, you might find the same issue.

Much better shifting!
My only issue was install wasn't as easy as instructions noted. There is no way to get the bracket installed without removing the shift lever arm from the transmission. Hammering the roll pin out with a M6 bolt then assembling the bracket assembly to the shift lever arm outside the car is the only way to install. Its not bad at all...but instuctions should be updated. Reference Cobb short shift bracket instructions for details.

No Complaints Here!
Best reduction in throw possible for the money. There is certainly a little more force and precision needed for shifting, but not to the point that it affects daily driving. This will come with any short shift addition though.

Excellent product..
Had the plate installed on 2013 Ford Focus and you cam immediately feel the shorter more precise shifts. Takes a little getting used if you've been driving the standard shift but after a day or so... you will love how precise the shift feels. Another item the Steeda guys have hit out of the park!
