You can use the standard shifter shaft, but will need a longer centre rod, I used a tent peg and hit one end with the angle grinder to round it off. If you change the shifter shaft to the shorter unit, you will need to remove your centre console (not entirely necessary, but makes it easier to access the base) and remove the retaining bolt which holds the base of the shaft onto the selector pin. I think it's a 13 or 14mm ring spanner needed for the nut.
Well worth it though, here are the before and after shots of mine
