If you want a notchy short throw do this plate plus the tougher bushings and a weighted shift knob. Best bang for your buck by far and have zero complaints with my shifter assembly. Feels almost clunky in a good way. Never slip gears and faster shift times are always good.

The short throw shift plate was the best transmission mod of my life! It doesn't take me a year to shift into gear anymore. I did the full 32% or 40% on the shift plate and isn't difficult to shift into gear at all. Pretty good mod to start out with! Install could be done by 5 month old babies. Corksport you never disappoint!

Forget remapping and intakes buy this first as it the best improvement to my car so far. Easy to fit and makes everything feel tighter and lighter. Very happy.

Install was easy. If you're running a short ram, removing it will give you better access. I set mine just right of center. Throws are ALOT shorter. 2nd to 3rd at 6k puts you right into full boost in 4th. I used the provided weight instead of retaining the OEM weight. Might swap back though. The lighter shifts just don't feel like they are landing like the heavier ones did. Going to run it for a few weeks and see if it feels more natural.
All in all, quality product. Does exactly as it says.

Does exactly what it says it would do. Love the short shifts. Shift are more crisp. Easy install.I highly recommend this if you want to reduce your shift throws.

Took me about 30min to install, hardest part was removing the linkage off the ball joint. Other than that! a Great Product! I have it just below the full 40% decrease which is perfect for me! Combine with the shifter bushings, and the feel is 100% better! Thanks again Corksport!

I installed this while at work still on the clock and no one noticed I even left. Very simple install thanks to the directions that came with it (even easier if you already have a SRI). Reduced my shifts to the lowest % (40% decrease I believe). First couple miles of driving took a little getting used to but after that throws feel great! Awesome product highly recommend.

This is an amazing mod!! It feels great when shifting with the corksport weight. The shifts are much more shorter and quicker. I recommend this to anyone who has a mazdaspeed.

Installed it, tried every setting (20% to 40% reduction), missed 3rd gear constantly on just 20%. Tried returning it, would only compensate for either shipping or the 20% restocking fee, neither were a guarantee that i was going to get a full refund. Poor product for the Gen1, not sure if they ever even tested it for us, just the Gen2's.
CorkSport Reply: The shift plate has been installed on one of our shop Gen 1 MS3s.
I installed this about a week ago. 1st, 3rd, and 5th seem very short... But 2nd 4th and 6th still feel the same... I set it just barely over from full left. Using the OEM counter weight. Any suggestions/advice on how to make all the shifts feel the same? Or is it supposed to be this way?
