I'd be up for it (as well as getting my hands on on a 997 shift)

The ends of the cables are metal rather than plastic and I do believe it replaces the connectors as well with a metal version. Overall it's supposed to be a sweeter, quicker change.

And the price? I couldn't find them on the web. With my 2nd/3rd gear change problem it may be worth a look, it can't make anything worse than it already is. Does make you wonder on an 80k car why it has crappy plastic fittings.

Only got a 996 C4, up for it if it would make significant change, ie reliability, don't want to go the 30%B&M route...

TBH I don't know whether Cup brake cables would fit, but the 997 shifter would fit, it's a direct replacement. If it's just a shorter throw you're after, you could consider the EVOMS swift shift kit that replaces one of the OEM components whilst shortening the throw.



Here's a picture of the infamous plastic connector used in all 996 and 997 cars......
