Smile Coolerworx Shifter Assembly (Dealers)

Recently, we just became a dealer of the popular Coolerworx shifter and they now allow it to work in the 370Z
.
"The shift lever is significantly longer and stored elevated. That does not just ensure a brutal racing look. In this way it moves significantly closer to the steering wheel, your shift travel is reduced by 60% and gear changes under load or while cornering are a breeze. So that even these short switching paths are highly accurate, all bearings are coated with Teflon. Freely adjustable gear stops and an integrated shift lock for reverse gear eliminate the risk of interconnecting."

Is it safe to assume this can only be used with shift knob that comes with the kit?

Do you have any kind of review of the product on a 370 or 350z?

I asked before and was told that the knobs are threaded so you should be able to use a different knob. I neglected to ask what the thread pitch was though...

I would think it would be nice to have instructions, especially when you're setting up the adjustable shift pins. Are you going to contact SOHO or Coolerworx to see if instructions are available?

Would you be able to do a small review of the shifter? I've been looking at this one for a bit now and can't find any videos about it. Really wondering how it changes up the feeling of the shifter. Thanks dude!

I contacted Matt at SOHO. He responded right away and has reached out to Coolerworx to provide instructions. He's going to contact me when he receives some information.

Also, I was looking at an installation tutorial on a bmw site and the one they installed they set it up to where you had to pull up on the collar to access 5th gear just like you have to do when accessing reverse. That way there is no way to accidently shift into fifth when shifting to third. That would be great if the 370z shifter can be set up the same way. I wouldn't want to lock out 6th though because you could accidently shift into reverse.

Mind sharing the link to the tutorial you found? I "think" I assembled it properly but any extra information is better than none lol.

As for locking out 5th, seems like a bad idea for the Z considering on BMWs their Reverse is located near 1st and ours is near 6th. Chances are, if you have to engage the lockout to go into 5th, you'd have to do it for 6th as well and you'd be introducing that accidental shift factor.

I was mistaken, it was actually for an Audi. I don't think it's going to be much help but I'll post it anyway. Why would you have to enhage the lockout in 6th if you lockout fifth? I just know that with my twm shifter there were a few times I did a quick shift to third from second and accidently hit 5th. Here's the Audi video.

I could be wrong, but one would think that if you have to engage it for the lever to move that far over in the gate, it would have to be done for all gears past that point (i.e. 5/6/R) or if not, and it was only done for 5th, what's keeping you from inadvertently shifting from 5th to Reverse instead of 6th unless there's a way to lockout multiple gears? Not very likely to happen, but the lockout mechanism exists for a reason...

EDIT: Thanks for the link. Not much of it is cross-compatible with our cars however it did show me how to setup the stop nuts. I'll post how I assembled mine so far when I go home on lunch... hopefully it's correct although taking it apart is easy once you do it a few times.
