i think that i may be possible to swap this into a 6 speed. but the Xi is unlikely. however the only real way to find out is to try? anybody w/ an xi feel like risking 80 bucks?
I dont know about Dinan rebending anything, the resemblance is uncanny, i feel like they simply lower the shifter a few mm and sell it for 100 bucks more. Also remember that this shifter for instance will not be as good a replacement as the complete kit from active autosolutions. nothing is as in depth and perfect as that kit. but for a considerably cheaper and quicker install. that gives you maybe 70% of the benifit, I would say this is a worthwhile mod.
