I'll be sure to let you all know how I like it

Shorty's metal side to side shifter looks like a good way to get a metal bracket in there.

I might also try the ECS cable ends.

I bought a used side to side shifter off eBay for about $35

Dieselgeek has a great bushing to remove any/all side to side slop:

Figured "why not?" and bought that too

Got a set of used Neuspeed rse05 in Hyper Silver. Not sure if I'll keep them silver or powder coated.

Also visited AWE Exhaust and picked up the touring conversion midpipe to be a bit more civil in the winter months.

Pics added to the shared album in the OP.

Talking Euro Short shifter!

I swapped out the stock shifter and installed the Euro short shifter. It feels simply exactly what it should feel like from the factory!

Fore and aft feels like it's right between the stock throw and the Diesel geek S6's throw.

I tried to fit the metal side to side bracket as well, but it would seem that the stock cable end is both too wide and it's inner width allows for too much play when it's attached to the metal bracket.
***Side note does anyone know what part number the cable end is for the metal side to side bracket???

Here's some pictures showing what the stock vs the euro short shifter looks like. Also some before and after shots of the referb job that I did on the side to side bracket:

Interested in a full review of the shifter. Been eyeing it myself.
