m5guy said:B&M is two blocks away from my office, so I called one of the guys I know in their engineering department to ask if this was a new part number for them. His reply was YES, this is a new version of their traditional Ripper shifter that fits both the C5 and C6. Here are the differences that they are claiming:
1.) Fully isolated housing for less vibration;
2.) No tension spring controlling side-to-side movement, so it feels similar to the stock shifter when moving in this direction;
3.) Throw length reduction is not as aggressive as the old Ripper shifter. So, the throw reduction is still an improvement from stock, but not as aggressive as their previous version.
I do not have any association with B&M, so I'm just providing this information as it was explained to me. If you have any other questions, you should contact them directly.
zmokkin said:exSSer I dont see how you can say the BPP doesnt vibrate. I also have the BPP and it vibrated like hell with the stock knob. I then got the MGW pistol grip shift knob and it cut down on the noise alot but still vibrates and makes some noise. Did you do something special to stop the vibrations?
