the TRD shortshifter isnt as short as the TWM one, but it does reduce shift like it says it does. The only difference is that the TRD shifter is as tall as the stock shifter. The knob is in the same place and height, jus with a reduced shift. The TWM on the other hand gives the car a different feel. The shifter height is reduced 2 inches and it takes a lil more effort to get the car in gear. But it is really fun shifting by the way.
