Both are good.. the 40% reduction setting on the JBR kit didn't work on my Gen 3, as has been reported a couple times. It hit on the battery under tray for 1st and reverse damaging it.

CS 33% reduction works well.. replace shifter base bushings.

Will help with feel and shift speed a bit but not much else.

I have read everything i could about shifter plates and CS and verdict is JBR
And replace as must of the old oem as possible , bushings , shifter cable/ connections etc and use the right lube.
And Fine tuning may take several attempts, if there are grinds in 2nd or 3rd
