Will I be able to use the front cupholder now? The stock shifter, when in second gear, hits any type of cup/mug/bottle in the front cupholder. Does this short shifter fix the problem?

  • Yes! Because of the short handle, it shouldn't impede the use of that cup holder anymore. So stop storing change in it and start using it for what it is intended for! *large foam cups (it will differ from different restaurants) may still rub, but 12oz cans, 16oz bottles, and such, you're good to go.

    Night and day

    October 27, 2013

    I installed this to replace my '95 gt stock shifter, the throws are much shorter, no slop in neutral, and no vibs. In gear. Very happy with this shifter, also go ahead and get the gasket with it i installed it before the gaskets arrived and noticed a big reduction in gear noise. Installation was easy, the hard part was removing the old bolts and speed clips on the shifter bezel, and prying the base off the tranny. Tip: get underneath the car and tap the overhanging base with a hammer and flathead screwdriver. It should knock the sealant loose. Thanks again american muscle for awesome service and shipping!

    The front cup holder.... I can use it? This thing looks great in my car and definitely a shorter and quicker trip into those next gears. Installation was fairly easy and quick. I bought my car three years ago and I can tell she really loves not having that stock shifter anymore. Next project is a RAM powergrip clutch to add on with this short shifter. Love u AM

    Bang for buck the first thing to do to a stock car

    April 30, 2014

    Install was easy. Didnt run into any issues. At first it was a little rough shifting but once it was broken in, it became easier and smoother. It is a notchy shifter, so dont expect the smoothness of an MGW. It is somewhere in the realm of a pro 5.0 and a steeda. For the money though, it is a good buy and a solid piece

    The Good and the Bad

    July 04, 2013

    I really noticed a lot of difference going from 2nd gear to third gear. It used to be very easy to miss, and this short shifter guarantees you will never missed third again. It also makes a huge difference from 4th to 5th. I also used to grind going into reverse no matter what I did, now I don't grind at all as long as I ease it into reverse. This, along with some new tranny fluid and same with the dif with make a huge difference. On this car, I had to flip the handle to the other side of the shifter once I put it in, in order for the shifter to sit in a decent position. There is also no slop in neutral, which is very nice. Overall a good product, for me it took about 2 hours, most of which was figuring out how to take off the inner panels. Hope this helps.

    Good budget option with good results.

    May 21, 2013

    Purchased this shifter on sale as my stock one was very loose and the internal spring was almost completely shot. Installation of this item is quite easy and I did purchase the optional gasket as well. Everything fit together really well and the shifts feel much firmer and more confident. The lower angle of the shifter won't be for everyone as the shift ball on my car (factory 35th Anniversary Limited Edition stainless steel) is very close to the center console in first gear. I've mostly gotten used to it. Not everyone will like the firmness of this shifter as it is quite stiff. I like it but others will find it a bit much. On the subject of the shift knob, the factory knob does not sit nice and square on the shifter. That is to say, the etched writing on the top of the ball is at an angle toward the driver when fully on, instead of directly front to back.

    This is the BEST product I own!

    July 18, 2012

    I have had my mustang since it was purchased in 2004 brand new. I have spent the last 8 years with a stock shifter and after installing this I can't believe I failed to get this years ago! Every shift is quick and flawless... totally fool proof install! This shifter is amazing, I'm not sure why they put medium on the skill level because I have zero shop experience and was able to complete this myself with the amazing instructions that came with! Thanks AM! I also recommend the T-5/T-45 Gasket cover if you would like vibraton control while you drive.

    Some Info on this

    March 07, 2014

    For those budget minded, get a gasket maker, the 17$ gasket does it's job but it's too expensive in my opinion and doesn't fit the Sn95 perfectly. It will work, however. Also in sn95's (at least non-newedge) when installing the top part of the shifter after you remove the two bolts put the top piece on backwards or the shifter WILL almost hit the center console in first gear making it very uncomfortable. The shifter feels really solid, better shifting all around. Also, whoever said the height and length of this shifter is the same as the stock is blatantly LYING. the shifter is a lot smaller and your arm will stretch out more to reach it. You will definitely notice this just by watching how much the boot wrinkles with the new one. Overall I would recommend though, it is far better than stock
