I've got an 86' MR2 with a lot of miles, 5-speed. Recently I got to toy around in some higher HP cars and I was most impressed with how tight the shifting was and how smooth it felt. Getting back in my MR2 felt like I was shifting through a bucket of nails I'll be ordering a short shifter kit tomorrow, shifter lowering plate, shifter base bushings, and brass shift cable bushings. Is there anything else I should look at replacing? Is it possible my shift cable itself is jacked up? Any way to tell? I'm a car novice for the most part so obvious things tend to slip by me.
