IMO, marked difference from OEM. IMO, OEM shifter is too rubbery and throws are too long. SSK tightens everything up; you get a "snick, snick, snick", quick shifting feel (like it should have come from the factory, in the 1st place). Anyway, I've owned my car since new; 'tried three different SSK's. 'Like the Dinan, and price is certainly right.so basically oem feel, except for the throws and the height?
