I have driven other cars (not SE-Rs) where the shifter does not get pulled back.
Comments by Jarrod K. Wright
All SR20DE-powered cars use a rod-actuated shifter mechanism, which is bolted directly to the transmission. A solid connection such as this transmits vibration and engine/transmission movement directly to the shift knob in the cabin. You get outstanding shift feel and that karmatic connection everyone loves, in exchange for increased NVH and, of course, stick movement when the driveline whips around.
Most cars on the road today, however, use cable-actuated manual gearboxes. The pliable cable takes up any slop in the driveline, so you won't feel any stick movement even if you're down to one mount. You won't feel anything else, for that matter; it's like shifting with a dead gerbil.
