Will the gated shift plate work with a short throw shift kit?

It will only work with the Ford Racing Performance Parts (FRPP) short throw shifter. This kit shortens the length of the shift lever but does not affect the shift lever travel at the plate level.​​

How does the reverse lockout work?

The driver side “wall” of 2nd gear extends a few millimeters vehicle forward. To engage reverse, the shift lever must go toward 1st gear a few millimeters, then over to reverse. This design prevents accidental reverse selection when engaging 1st from total neutral position.

Will stuff fall into the shifter area?

Yes, there is a greater chance of stuff to fall in versus the stock leather boot.
