That sounds like something else is wrong...mine was the wrong part after/during a rebuild, the one they gave me was too long.
I ended up cutting it down and putting the same bend in it as the old one to "close out this thread" and it worked fine.
You may want to pull the cover off under the shifter and see if the cable is good, it has little ears or sides on it and if it gets broken the car won't go into the right gear.
Yep its slow.
