I agree. Both parties in this partnership will benefit.

Hey, thanks for the reminder. I maybe getting old, but not devoid of all common sense. Perhaps I've become a bit too infected with your enthusiasm kiddo.Modern Wedgie said:Supposedly all fixed as of 2002.
Just as a comparison, this is the angle of the shifter before. This is a TRD ss install, so of course the stock is longer. I'm just using this image so you can see the comparison with the stock shifter angle in neutral and the "fixed" shifter angle that Toyota fitted to the celica.Ancient Wedgie said:Is everyone gonna be happy with fixes like the one they used to "fix" that shifter probem in your GTS?
Yes, why don't you tell everybody, Lil, about THAT affront to engineering and performance?
OTOH, you never had a problem with shifting until <i>after</i> they replaced your first engine. Which could simply mean that it all depends upon installation, could it not?Modern Wedgie said:
Now the 02 cars dont have a crooked shifter. They <s>must</s> [may] have changed the linkage or something.
Others who did not have engine swaps had the same shifter problem. Check out www.newcelica.org for example. The shifter could have failed at 2000 miles, or in my case, 52000 miles. Yes, it was only a matter of time. Sadly, though Toyota is obviously aware of the problem, they refuse to have a recall. Its cheaper for them to replace motors/trannys I guess. I hate to buy a used one out of warranty, then have the shifter go out! Scary thought!Ancient Wedgie said:OTOH, you never had a problem with shifting until <i>after</i> they replaced your first engine.
