that was my understanding too, the only difference being the collar. i got the kit with the collar just incase but i have a 5 speed vts box fitted. the rods need adjusting properly but i can find all the gears

Any helpful hint and tips for fitting one of these off axle stands with the engine in place ? I’m struggling, plus how do you remove the cat from the manifold if the bolts keep spinning above ?

I think i drilled my holes through from inside the car. It wasn't easy though.

As for the bolts, you should be able to get a 10mm spanner on to the heads. I think the way i did it last time was with a deep 10mm socket on the nut with a UJ and several 1/4" extensions down to the ratchet which was below the subframe, and a 10mm spanner holding the bolts with my other arm reaching up to hold the spanner in place. Fiddly job with the car on axle stands.

After 10hrs of wrestling with this over the last 2 days, I’ve decided it must be a forum wind up like the milk van thing, has I’m now pretty sure it’s not possible to fit this unless you’ve got baby hands on super long arms lol

Lol I did warn it’s a nitemare. I drilled my hole from the inside but struggled like mad. This time round I’ve pulled the front of the cage and dash out to make life easier.

You can just about get someone in top of the cat bolts to undo them but he springs should hold enough pressure to allow the nuts to undo. I use a 1/4” uj on a ratchet which does the job well until I changed the manifold that is.

Don’t suppose you’ve got a pick of which way the little arm goes that you replace on the gearbox goes ?

In regards to adjustments, 6th isn’t as positive as the other gears. I.e have to really pull to the right for it to drop in. If not pulling it will drop into 4th as found out the hard way.

Any idea on which part needs adjusting as all other gears select perfectly just 6 seems a faff. I’ve fiddled a little but nothing seems to improve it so wondered If anyone else has had issue and know exactly what part needs a tweek

Hi Mike ...the rods 110% free through the hole in the floor and not rubbing ?

I had it rubbing and stopping it not 100% engagement / check the hole ...I made mine larger as you know for better side ways movement...

The small threaded rod under the floor / under the gear levers not come lose ?

6 six gear was smooth with the box for me ?....it’s something small

Not catching the exhaust manifold .... when it’s in 6th ????

Thumbs up

a good read thanks people, I have one to fit but after looking at some issues I think I will leave this to fcm motorsport who works on my other car. Unless anyone wants to quote to fit it!
I just don't feel confident and if I don't get it right the car is stuck using up a parking space and I will not be able to drive it to the garage to have it fine tuned!
End results sound like its worth the work.
I will update when its fitted, I have to try and convince john@fcm motorsport its dead easy first :-)

It's not a bad job. Just take your time doing the hole in the bulkhead.

Hi Mark
Did you fit one with the carpet and the full heater box in place and without a ramp ?

If so I think Lee needs to bring his to you Thumbs up

I fitted mine with the full heater in, I removed the front bit of carpet (for the time it takes there is no point it leaving it in place) and on axle stands.

The template was a bit s**t as it could move around in the tunnel area, as it was not a tight fit. I drew the set up on the box it came in to get an idea of the angle the rod sat at, given it is kinked. Then pilot drilled from the engine side into the car. I opened this out to a 1/4" and then used a hole saw from in the car. The only tip I can offer is use some steel bar instead of the drill bit in the hole saw. With a decent length it will go through the holes and cater for the bulkhead angle and keep the hole saw located. The normal bit in the hole saw would get no where near.

Then I just fettled the hole to suit. As above, start small and slowly open the hole up. Fitting the bulkhead sealing ring and material was a pain in the arse. I ended up super gluing the nuts to my finger to get them started before getting a spanner on them.

If you don't have a decent level of patience then get someone else to do it. I did mine over a few days, a bit here and a bit there.

Good Evening Everyone,

Has anyone ordered a Satchshift recently as i received mine today and the bulkhead seal/gater is very different to the ones in this thread. This may be due to how long ago this thread was started but wanted to make sure.

Many Thanks

I questioned the same thing when mine arrived. I was informed the steel ring with a flat piece of material with the cross slit was the latest standard. The only thing that lets the kit down imo. It is something I am going to look to improve when time permits.

I know it's a race item. Having fitted two on 205's, a 106 one and a 306 one it is purely an observation that the bulkhead boot is of less quality than the other kits. I have huge respect for what the guys produce as it is top notch. I would buy a second kit Thumbs up

Have anyone tried and fit a satchshift with another exhaust manifold?
Will the satchshift operate in the same area as the OEM?
I got this baby installed:
