I was wondering if there is any interest in a quick shift arm for the FWD Getrag 5 speeds. I make them for the Fiero Getrags. I have it designed. I would need to make them and make the welding jig etc. This is the shifting arm that is on the transmission. It would be a shorter shifter arm that would provide a shorter shifting throw. It would also be much heavier duty than the factory arm. Let me know if anyone is interested.

Thank you

I think GM already gave us this very part, off the 90's Beretta GTZ's...

I bet you could sell alot of them anyways though, GTZ's are rare.

Yeah there would definetly be some interest. I'd be more interested in replacement shift cables for under 100$ for the pair new and havey duty if that would be possible.

Not possible unless I would have a huge amount made that I would never sell most off. :(

What cables are available today? In the Fiero world there were cheap ones but they did not last more than 6 months. So I sell very good cables but the price is $139 each but they will last like OEM cables.

FYI, the beretta quick shift arms don't clear the tranny mount on our cars (or atleast the gate select arm dosen't.. i tried the other 'retta arm and it seemed to bind up my shifter cables...

May try it again since i have 2 days and nothing to do...

Can anyone send me some pictures of their Getrag linkage on the transmission? I wonder about this binding problem. Anyone in SE Wisconsin? Milwaukee area is where I am at. Would be nice to look at one before I make one.

the GTZ arms work. I had em on since 2002.

Colin also ran them no probs.
yours don't bind up at all?

i used the arms (both) from a '93 W41 trans and ended up swapping on the stock Jbody ones.. the shifter was really hard to move.

I guess i can dig them out tonight and give it another try.. just for the sake of this thread.. lol :lol:
