I think that the Cobb is 'shorter' throw than the Kartboy and that's why they recommend this.
How do I like it? I adjusted the shifter to its maximum throw and minimum height and so far, it feels great
If you set the shifter to a shorter throw (ie. lengthen the bottom section), then the linkage will eventually rub on the boot and could hit the metal plate. This is why COBB recommends that modification. The way you have it now, I would not expect any interference. Even if you set it to be about the same throw as the Kartboy, then you shouldn't have any issues.
