I don't know of k2. I've heard of Skunk2. I'd try Spoon, Comptech, Hasport., DC Sports, a widely known manufacturer for a quality part like that. Even though it is an easy modification to perform. Seems like a good price, but I'm skeptical.

If you wish to shift faster, the short distance to the shifting gate will do that.If you want even faster shifting, look into V-gate, or Vertagateif takes the "H" pattern away, but does not work on top shifters common to most ricers

I wouldn't bother spending the $35 on a short shifter. The time saved between shifts, if you are shifting correctly in the first place, is only a fraction of a second, which during normal driving (not at the track) equates to nothing. You could find a way better mod to perform for $35.If you are going for style over performance, go with whatever you like. All short shifters are basically the same, they are all aluminum or steel and no one is better than the other, you are just paying for the name (like apexi, spoon, mugen and skunk2).
