Short-shift kits can add performance to shifting by reducing shifter throw when shifting.  A proper short-shift kit changes the shifter lever pivot point by replacing the shifter lever and shimming the new shifter lever higher.  The shift knob location is then lowered on the shifter lever itself.  This adjusts the pivot point which will not raise the effort to shift and can actually reduce it.

Beware of cut-down stock shift levers.  This will shorten shifter throw but will also raise shifting effort!

It is also recommended to replace your stock OEM Mazda shifter bushings, as some owner have complained about shifter rattling noise.  New shifter bushings seem to fix this problem most of the time.
