  • “Speed Shift” Your Automatic Transmission
  • Perfect for Street and Strip
  • No Modifications Required
  • Lighted Gear Indicator
  • NHRA Legal
  • Fits 2005-2009 Automatic GT & V6 Mustangs
Speed Shift. The stock automatic shifter is good for everyday driving, but it has some drawbacks when it comes to serious street/strip performance. TCI's StreetFighter Ratchet Shifter for the GT and V6 provides a positive stop shifting action that allows you to manually “speed shift” your Mustang's transmission without fear of hanging between gears or missing a gear all together.

Race Inspired Appearance. This Ratchet Shifter not only improves your overall driving experience, but it also has an equally impressive race-inspired billet appearance that makes it at home on the track or the street and comes complete with a lighted gear indicator for perfect gear selection.

Direct Fit Installation. The StreetFighter Mustang Ratchet Shifter was designed to fit perfectly into the 2005-2009 GT and V6's center console with no modifications required to the interior or the factory 5R55S transmission. And to further simplify the installation this ratchet shifter reuses the stock shift cable.

Application. This TCI Street Fighter Ratchet Shifter is designed to fit the 2005 to 2009 V6 and GT Mustang's with a 5R55S Automatic Transmission and is NHRA legal for drag race competition.

I got my shifter from TCI about 3 and 1/2 years ago before AM was selling them...I paid about $100.00 more. The shifter is a great one! You still have a button to turn on and off overdrive, it looks ...

Review & Install Video

Dave from AmericanMuscle, with me today is the TCI ratchet shifter for the 05-09 automatic GT and V6 Mustang. The idea behind the ratchet shifter is this: put some excitement and some precise control over your gear changes, back into driving your automatic Mustang. The TCI ratchet shift goes directly in place of the factory unit, no drilling or any kind of special modifications required. This part will allow you to manually shift your automatic with precise control and safety in mind. Safety, because you’re not going to miss any shifts and overshift or downshift too soon, with this neat ratcheting design, it allows you to precisely go from park into 1st and everything between. Here we are in our automatic GT, it’s the 05-09 variety so it’s a 5 speed automatic, at this point we’ve got the car in drive, I’m just going to drive round for a couple of minutes, get an idea of how it shifts on its own. Then we’ll throw it back with the stock shifter into 1st and go through all 5 gears, giving an idea of how it shifts when I shift it. The reason being we’re about to take this shifter out and as we mentioned go with the TCI ratchet shifter and come back out and try it again. Okay so we’ve just simulated normal driving, now I’m going to go ahead and throw this shifter down, put it into 1st, and go through the gears like I mentioned before, including using the overdrive button on the side here, I really want to get through all the gears with some quick shifting, manually with my automatic, let’s give it a shot. Very responsive, however definitely a delay between all my shifts. We’re back here after our stock run, we have our stock shifter out of the car and we’re about to install the TCI ratchet shifter. We’ll take it back out, run it through the same paces, see what kind of changes we notice. So we’re back with our TCI ratchet shifter installed on our automatic GT, now we’re going to take it out on the street, let it run normally, just put it in drive as if our stock shifter were still in here and see how it performs, basically to make sure nothing changed. Then we’ll have some fun, going to throw it back into 1st gear and use the ratchet shifter to manually shift our automatic for precise and ideally crisp shifting with our automatic. Now up shift. Little tire chirp. Not bad. Now what I’ve done is go ahead and turned my overdrive off, so I’m working with my bottom 4 gears at all times, keeping the car in the “go gears” as I like to call it. Let’s give it some oomph going up this hill. Very nice. Well we just got back as you saw from driving the car with the TCI ratchet shifter in it, and I’ll be honest with you, it did add a lot of excitement to driving the automatic. I’m a fan of driving manuals, I want that control, and I feel I got that control in the automatic with the TCI ratchet shifter. It’s also really nice to look down and see the illuminated numbers here, I always knew what gear I was in. The leather boot and the brushed material really went well with the interior. So final verdict: good product that works well, and fits in the interior real nice.

Does it allow me to shift all the way through to 5th gear?


  • 5th gear is OD. This lets you bump up through the first four then you have to hit the OD button for 5th. That being said if you consider pushing a button shifting...... Good luck

does this hurt the transmission?


  • No it will not affect the transmission in the least. I love my TCI StreetFighter Shifter that I bought from American Muscle. The difference in my Stang is amazing. It is fun, looks great, and beats the stock shifter by a mile. I recommend it.

    TCI Streetfighter Shifter

    Great looking shifter. Took me less than 1 hr. to install. hardest part is removing retaining clip at front of shifter. clip has 2 tips that snap into frame of shifter. hard to get at and difficult to see under car. actually bought this for the way it looked and ended up using it for what it is designed to do. solid lookup on shift change and no problems so far. great item.

    great piece of equipment

    Installation took a little over an hour. Still had time to go cruise and pick up my twins. Love the way the shifter feels, solid feels good when you shift gears. Props to TCI and AM. Great product guys.

    Long time coming

    Ive waited until this product got a little cheaper before purchasing, worth every penny now. half hour install, makes my Mustang way more fun to drive. Shifting back in park seems alittle rough. But over all very satisfied

    A MUST HAVE for every automatic Mustang !

    First off, A HUGE !! hats off to costumer service at AMERICANMUSCLE. I received my package partially opened and the box was beat up (Not A.M's fault but rather U.P.S's), at this point I called AMERICANMUSCLE and let them know what happened. Before I even finished explaining why I felt hesitant installing the shifter ... and I quote "Sir I am very sorry you received an opened package and I will feel much better If I can send you a NEW package right away"... WOW !! A+ and I received the new shifter the next day !!! Now on to the shifter review... The instal wasn't to bad and the shifter is amazing !! (TIP) when installing the shifter wrap it with something so it wont get nicked when tightening bolts or placing the center console back in. The last thing you want is a ding or scrape on your new shifter.

    Great Shifter, Easy Install, Minor Adjustment needed

    This is a cool upgrade. Makes my automatic a lot more fun, just step on it, and shift. Works great. One adjustment I had to make. The instructions don't tell you this, but when you go through the install and you have the new shifter in and are attaching the cable connector under the car. make sure the connector and the shifter "pin" align. The cable can be easily adjusted at that point. If it is off the shifter will not ratchet correctly. Only try this if you have a problem shifting. you may get lucky on the first try.. Mine was off just enough to have even been related to the placement of the shifter inside the car. But all in all, great product, highly recommended.

    TCI Shifter

    Good price and I love the way it looks and feels. Just be really careful concerning the position of the shift cable during installation. Do not let it move while disconnecting it from the stock shifter and hooking it up to the new TCI shifter. If you do, your new shifter will not reflect which gear you are truly in.

    Best of both worlds!

    I bought my car with an automatic transmission because I drive a truck for a living, and I do enough shifting all day long to want to do it in my car too...Until I bought this TCI Ratchet shifter, that is. My car is now more fun to drive and I can "bang" through the gears if I want, or just leave it in's the best of both worlds! Fit and finish is excellent, the guys at TCI really did a great job designing this shifter, and I love the leather boot.
