Not likely IMO ... most of the issues I've seen on these cars that leads to
shifter vagueness is at the transmission end ... a loose ball on the shift
linkage at the transmission shift rod or deteriorated bushings at the same
location or on the locating rod that attaches to the bellhousing.

Will installing 034 short shifter take care of the bushing issue or is that

A drivetrain built to handle 500-odd hp?  Naw.  Probably just needs some 
shift linkage bushings to tighten things up.  BTDT on all my 20-27 year 
old Audis.
