Just wondering. This is usually the first mod that comes out for cars. Is the MS6 that hard to make one for? I would think that even Mazda would offer one off the bat. :drive:
local Mazda dealer told me the one on Mazdausa.com would work...i believe it's the same as the normal 6Just wondering. This is usually the first mod that comes out for cars. Is the MS6 that hard to make one for? I would think that even Mazda would offer one off the bat. :drive:
I thought it wouldn't work? The regular 6's don't come with the same 6 speed set up as the MS6 from what I understand otherwise I'm sure people would have installed it already.local Mazda dealer told me the one on Mazdausa.com would work...i believe it's the same as the normal 6
I wouldn't hold my breath on TWM. I inquired about a shifter for the MS6 at the beginning of September, and it doesn't sound like we are very high on their priority list:TWM is working on one, harrass them with e-mails and we might have a product
TWM Performance is currently working on a few new shifter models and
bushing kits that will be launched in the next few months. We have
quick look into the 2006 Mazda, Mazdaspeed6 to see if it is compatible
with our existing line up of shifters? Unfortunately there is zero
compatibility and a new shifter would need to be developed starting
As much as we would love to start working on developing a shifter for
Mazdaspeed6 our current schedule would not allow for this. We are
collecting the necessary components needed so that when we are ready to
begin development we have everything in house. We will begin working
this new shifter as soon as our other projects have cleared.

It's not the ease of shifting I'm looking for. I want the mechanical advantage for quicker shifts.You can always cut and weld the top part of the shifter. Still gives a shorter throw and is still a short shifter. Now before anyone jumps on me about this, it gives the advantage of having a shorter throw yes because basically, you would be holding the shifter lower. HOWEVER, it does not give you the mechanical advantage that a "normal" short throw shifter does. Normally a short throw shifter changes where the linkage meets up with the shifter. The top part generally stays the same length. To get an idea of what I'm talking about by shortening the shifter, grab the shifter lower than the op and try shifting from there, you will get an idea, though it would be easier having the shifter there than just holding the shaft there.
But, its still a shorter throw regardless. I have this done on my talon and I love it.
