Looks awesome, I have the same color.Just received my Quick-Shift Arm yesterday in red. First of off the piece is absolutely beautiful. It's very well crafted. Here's a photo:

The install was honestly a pain in the ass. The air box was stubborn but no where near as bad as the roll pin. I spent over an hour getting the roll pin out. Either I wasn't giving it enough force or mine was on extra tight. None the less, it was definitely worth it. I set mine to position 2. I like the notchy feel of the shifter, but I will say it is slightly harder to get into first gear as others have pointed out. Also getting into and out of reverse is slightly harder. Overall, I think it was worth it. The notchy feel may not be for everyone, but I definitely like it more. I seem to be more "connected" to the car. Excellent craftsmanship. Keep up the great work.
Have patience it will eventually come out. Mine took just as long but it was worth it. My back was also killing me at the end.Tried to install this today. Spent over two hours hammering on the roll pin, and while it has moved, it is nowhere near out. I had to give up for the day because I couldn't take being bent over anymore and the supplied stainless pin is now trash.
I'm sure the product is great and it isn't Breedt's fault that my pin was so difficult, just be warned that the install may not go as smoothly as you'd like.
Did you use a 3lb sledge?? I had mine out in five minutes and the whole install took 30 mins.If it was just a sore back, I would have pushed through the pain to finish. The pin provided in the kit is garbage now. 2+ hours of pounding destroyed it. There are only so many times you can pound the mushroomed ends of the pin down before you need to come up with a new solution.
I'll try to fix the pin with a grinder tomorrow at work. I can't believe how much force it has required. I'm neither weak, nor new to wrenching. I can't ever remember having such a hard time with an install before.
