CAE Ultra Shifter - Porsche 996, 997, Cayman, and Boxster
The CAE Ultra Shifter stands above other H-pattern performance shifters for your Porsche. Optimized for motorsport and characterized by its optimal ergonomics, the Ultra Shifter reduces excessive hand movement during shifts.
This unit features an active centering spring that provides feedback that you can feel. This keeps your shift lever positioned for your most common 3rd/4th gear changes, while pre-positioning the shift lever for precision up/down shifts.
Where the CAE differs from most other aftermarket shifter options is the design of the adjustable centering spring and active lever stops. Other shifters rely on the cable to "limit" the shifter movement. This leads to added stresses on the cable and transmission. During casual driving, this is not an issue and is considered normal wear. However, racing situations leads to far more aggressive shifts. The precision positioning of your shifts reduces wear on your gearbox syncros. The stock resistance-based reverse "lockout" is not 100% reliable to keep a driver from accidentally throwing the car into reverse during a downshift. The CAE features a mechanical reverse lockout to prevent a catastrophic mis-shift.

Looks amazing installed. Shifts are short and feel rifle bolt like. I rated at 4 out of 5 stars because engaging reverse gear is stiff and notchy. Others have complained as well.
