I am trying to install my triax and I ahve a quick question on the very first step (That can't be a good sign). When you remove the plastic aroundt he shifter, are you removing the chrome ring, or the whole thing, including the cigarette lighter area. Do you just pull? I know the instruction say to just pull, but I am nervous about using a lot of force. If you do just take off the chrome piece, are those little black things allen wrench-type screws? What size.

Thanks, and hopefully I can get through the rest of the steps more easily. But hey, I'm an electrical engineer, not mechanical...

No problem. The complete piece lifts up. Just grab at the inside of the boot ring and pull the sides inward a little,while pulling up. Then when loose,disconnect the power connector. I was cautious the first time also! The screw heads are plastic fakes,DO NOT LOOSEN!

Thanks a lot,
after that, the whole thing went smoothly. The old shifter was a bit of a pain in the butt to get off the tranny, but eventually it came off. I works great, I am really impressed. My only other problem is getting the shifter knob seated right-side up! Takes a whole lot of torquing down, or I hve to leave it pretty loose.

Thanks again for the help,

Bill

I installed mine over the weekend and still can't believe the difference it makes. I had forgotten how nice a performance shifter feels. Last year, I had the chance to drive one of my father-in-law's customer's car. It's a '95 GT with EVERYTHING done to it. Ported GT-40 heads/intake, E303 cam, Vortech V-trim, BBK LT's, o/r h-pipe, Flowmasters, 3.73's, King Cobra clutch, '93 computer, and a Pro 5.0 Power Tower shifter. I remember now how tight that shifter felt. I LOVE my Tri-Ax and I think it has a little better handle position than the Pro 5.0 has.

Edit: BTW, the GT was capable of running 11's, but with drag radials, the best the owner could manage was a 13.6 with wheelspin through 3rd gear. :grin:
