    Hey guys so after installing the trio kit I cannot get my shifter to center When in neutral, itís leaning towards the right. I use the videos to adjust the shifter and once I get it center I lose reverse. Anyone else run into this?? Any help would be appreciated.

    You probably have the black piece on the bottom installed backward\upside down. It should angle slightly to the left I believe.

    I just installed my shifter a few days ago. It took me 4-5 hours to get the alignment working to hit all gears. I believe i have some broken motor/transmission mounts which causes it to be out of alignment. I pretty much just had to guess and check for 4-5 hours till i figured out the right angles. 7 degrees back and 3 degrees right (or whatever the instructions said) just did not work for me.

    Sorry thats the best i got for ya :(

    A lot of people (from what Iíve read on here) such as myself have had luck with the trial and error approach. I used the 7 degrees back and 3 degrees right approach as a starting point and went from there.

    Make sure you have the right one, early/late.
    Youll know if its wrong, the throws wont be straight fwd/bkwd.

    Some side plates had mounting holes for both the early and late xrods, make sure its on the right one?

    Where most people get it wrong is not removing ebough material of the metal cup on the trans.
    This usually makes it so you cant get into rev most often iirc, and sounds like you can though.
    There are only 2 things needed to make an Audi work properly - Duct tape and WD40. If it moves and it shouldn't - Duct tape. If it doesnít move and it should - WD40.

    When you are adjusting, wiggle the shifter side to side in both first and fifth gear. The wiggle amount should be the same when adjusted properly. If its tight in 5th and really loose in 1st, you will know you are out of adjustment.

    Did you verify early vs late? https://jhmotorsports.com/products/shifterstyle/

    Hey zilla, I've been trying to find the photo you shopped in an old thread about cutting material out of the bottom of that shift rod cup when using the jhm setup. So far, I've been unable to find it. Any chance you still have it on your phone/computer somewhere, or am I mistaken when when I remember you posted about it?

    Guessing this one? Been a while, but I think this is the right version lol

    Yeah that's the one! Was looking for this awhile ago because I picked up some used linkage that had this already performed but the owner said it could use a little more material cut off. Thanks zilla, you're the man!
