That's way nice if they fit the St165 too. I'm just glad there is a relatively cheap option for new shift cables for our cars! Of course that's after I paid way to much for a used pair.

Looks like they are different from the ST165. I took forever getting back to the project. The dimensions are a bit off. The left/right cable is about 2 inches too long. Looks like I'll be cutting the cables up. The cable housing will be fine though. I'll be replacing the trans side with a threaded rod end for some adjustment.

I did the measurements and modified my MR2Heaven ST185 cables to fit in my ST165.

I cut 16mm of length off the CABLE for the forward and back shift cable. And I removed 48mm from the side to side cable. There was enough material to cut it off the shifter side and weld back together. I have them in the car and they feel great! I also installed my spherical bearings into the trans side to get rid of the crappy rubber bushings. I did nothing to the cable housings themselves.

Hope this helps the ST165 guys that need cables.

Just browsing EBAY and saw these if anyone needs them. Could be a good back up set.

Has anyone who purchased a new set of these shift cables from MR2HEAVEN.COM installed them yet? Would like to know how easily they went in, and what modifications were necessary. And, if you've had them in for awhile, how they are performing so far.
