    Not really much to it, there are a couple of screws on the front side of the horizontal shifter, just loosen those up a bit, and pull the thing off, it will probably be on there good at first, but the screws are the only thing really holding it on.

    And welcome to the site

    I have a 5 spd but I think the b&m hammer looks sick as well as would be sick. How do you like it and how hard was it to install?
