youll need a firewall adjuster also if you dont already have 1. I have a fiore quadrant that looks about the same as that and works well

I drove a car with the UPR unit--nice crisp action, but I wouldn't want it on a daily driver...

I have that quadrant....very nice for power-shifting, the triple hook is better for a DD. I have both BTW.

^+1, a quick release quadrant has a more aggressive cam action that increases the relative (relative to pedal motion) speed at which the clutch engages and disengages--this also increases to amount of force needed to operate the clutch, and reduces the range of motion between barely engaged and fully engaged.

These latter two characteristics are why I would not recommend it for a DD...

The triple hook design allows you to choose from 3 different positions for the cable. I set up most customers cars in the middle hook, then set up the final adjustment with the firewall adjuster. They work great! If anyone is still running the stock plastic POS, you need to ditch it.

Just FYI, we have the triple hook and firewall adjuster on sale for $39.95 plus shipping.
