I bought an empi short shifter, When I installed it, I could not shift into reverse. All the gears work just fine. I used the shift plate that came with the shifter. any help would be helpful. thanks.

Stupid question, but you did pull up on the reverse lockout ring before shifting, right"?

If you still can't grab reverse, check the condition of the shift coupler cage under the access plate beneath the back seat. Chances are the rubber cage bushings are shot and are in need of replacement. Urethane bushings are available through the aftermrket. And this advice goes for anyone with air hockey shifting.
