As above really, especially the lower gears at slower speeds. It will go into gear but it does take a bit of persuasion especially first and up to second and it's not the reassuring clunk of the upper gears. I'm hoping it maybe adjustment in the cables but can anyone advise? I had a look at them at the gearbox end and there doesn't seem excessive play and they're cable tied in place. When I swapped the shifter I marked the cables and fitted them in the same position.

Other relevant work I've done to rule out is new clutch, 997 shifter, engine mounts, gearbox mount inserts.

Thanks

I've found the alignment tool which I've ordered so I'll give that a try.

I doubt that is the issue. If the movement at the lever end is not the limiting factor then the setup is OK.

Sounds like selector rail inside your gearbox or some other gearbox issue like worn synchros.

I wouldn’t be happy with my change either. It’s got some sort of quick shift but I find it a bit woolly. My clutch is a bit on the long side so I’ll not panic about it until I’ve a new clutch but I’m in no hurry for that either. Is there any real adjustment to be had?
Sorry to hijack your thread. It’s I’m possibly looking at the same problem you are

Could it be engine mounts?

When was the last time the oil was changed?

Always removed the filler plug first to ensure it comes out!

I hope it’s not the actual gear box 🤞

Engine mounts swapped at the weekend, there’s a definite improvement along with the gearbox mount inserts.

Not sure when the oil was last changed, i’ll check.

Alex,

Are you able to modify the standard Porsche shift with more robust components?

Or do you only remove the standard shift and replace with your modified short shift?

Cheers
