Complete waste of money on a Bellett.
$$$$ is far better spent on making better ratios and faster shifting inside the box (dog box with straight cut gears and no synchros) thana shifter that just connects to slow changing internals and crap ratios that are far too big a jump between them to work properly.

don't take things too seriously Brett. It was put up in humerous intent. We all know the limitations of a Bellett g'box.

Limitations that become far worse when you race with any Isuzu box. Believe me.
You see the price of that shifter too..... Bloody hell.

I imagine though getting a special gear set cut for a Bellett box would be super expensive.

I see though that you can buy a 'short' 5 speed from Tremec with various ratios and looks pretty small, so might fit. Of course this wont be cheap either plus an adapter or new bell housing would be needed.
The old adage, speed costs money etc applies.........
