This shifter reinforcer does work as advertised, but I found the installation instructions sorely lacking. First, it calls for doing a test fit of the plate after drilling - however, it's impossible to see the holes you're supposed to be testing fittment against unless the car is up on a lift! Second, the instructions fail to mention that installation of the bolts and nuts is really a two person job. I have long arms and was thus able to do it myself, but I think most people would struggle getting one hand to either end of the bolt. Captive fasteners would be a big help here. Lastly, the instructions caution against overtorquing the bolts...yet they neglect to tell you what torque value to use! They really should just figure out the torque and include it in the instructions here.
