Help me identify my short shift kit

Hello,

When I bought the car it already had a SSK installed. However, the previous owner did not remember what kit it was.

Anyway, I've been wanting to do adjustments in it and ran into a snag. There's a little screw that holds the shifter in place and I have no idea how to remove it.

Attached is a pic for reference.

Does anyone know how to unscrew that thing? It does not look like an allen, torx or phillips.

Thanks.

That picture sucks use the Macro setting on your cam/phone. Having said that it looks like a rivet. Or a security torx which in that case means its not adjustment point. I would take a better pic.

Sounds like the UUC kit?

A security torx makes sense.. the reason I want to adjust it is because the shifter is not straight... If you look at the 6-speed emblem on the shift knob its like they are slightly rotated towards the right...

UUC it is... I just checked it on the site. Now I need to figure out how to rotate the damn thing. I think the torx lockes the angle of the shifter and the lower locking collar only allows adjustment of the height... hmm
