im liking the throws right now just wish it was a little lower...does anyone have a diagram or documentation of the 5 speed all apart? is it possible to cut it? i wouldnt have a problem re threading it after i cut it... just curious about how to open it all up to see it...
maybe someone has got some pics...

you can cut and re-thread the stock shifter. any of the tech articles for short shifter installs can get you where you want.

I'm so glad I ordered mine with the TRD short shifter! Don't know what it's like yet, but I'll let you guys know as soon as my BSP xB2 gets here. Should be here tomorrow morning!
