Hello, i would like to further improve my OG 9-3 shifting! has anyone fitted the late 6 speed NG 9-3 trans? The Gen Saab short shifter mod is a GREAT!(and stiffer trans mount helps too ) so the short shifter is a fix that helps w/ the shifter but I'm advised the real,( expensive) and permanent fix I'm going to do is fit a late model 6, SIX-speed fr a late model 9-3 ya' need to get an f 40? diesel transmission bell housing (euro market only ) and Nick sells a shift improver kit for the six-speed too? but it's still not perfect as it is a CABLE operated transmission as opposed to the Rube Goldberg rod system we have now? (have you noticed how complicated the OG device is where it is going into the trans?) A redesign, rebuild (and or a new one) might help! I used to make"better" cables in the motorcycle shop so we'll see if the OEM ones are done right.? my experience is You can get some improvement w/ Teflon linings, ( much less friction, smoother) and other careful fabrication, fitment, changing leverage, fulcrum points, etc .
