    Hey, guys, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com here with the Modern Billet Retro Style 6-Speed Shift Knob for 2015 and up GT EcoBoost and V6 Mustangs. The shift knob can be a centerpiece of the interior, and it's an area where the driver can almost add some self-expression, if you will, but without totally changing the interior. The Modern Billet Retro Style Shift Knob has almost a nostalgic styling to it, so it would be a good option for drivers looking for that type of style, for the MT82-equipped S550s, but still have the factory shifter handle. It is a classic 8 ball round type of shift knob for those drivers that prefer this over other styles. And while it is a minor mod, the shift knob is one of the connecting pieces between the car and driver, so it needs to be comfortable. So this particular Modern Billet Shift Knob is white with a black, engraved, classic 6-speed shift pattern on top. This shift knob is going to be a little bit different than the other options that are out there, because while this is a pretty simple and classic design, there is a wide range of colors available. So you can either keep it classic style or take a classic style and make it your own. Along with this black on white option, you are also looking at colors like white on black, black on polished, and then you've got your wild colors with a white on red and blue. If you think a white shift knob is going to stand out, then you should check out the pictures of the red and blue shift knobs. But no matter which color you end up choosing, they're all going to have the 6-speed shift pattern, of course, and it's always going to be engraved. They're all styled with inlaid engravings, and the engravings are usually preferred over the other options, like a decal, because then you don't have to worry about fading after use with an engraving. There are a ton of different types of material to choose from when you're looking for a shift knob. The material and finish are definitely something to consider, because different types of material have a different type of feel, and you also have to consider how the material will react to temperature changes, like the heat of summertime or the cold of wintertime. The colored shift knob options are made from a resin compound for strength and durability, and they're not as sensitive to heat or cold as other materials are. The polished knob, on the other hand, is made from a solid billet aluminum. So if you really want that look, then just keep in mind that this material will feel different, have a different weight, and will react to temperature changes. The next thing that should be considered when shopping for a shift knob is size. Now, size is important, because it's going to affect how the shifter feels in your hand, and these particular shift knobs have a one to three-fourths diameter, which is going to be a little bit smaller than some of the other options that are out there and even a little bit smaller than the factory shift knob. So if you're looking for a larger shift knob, then this one may not be it. So these shift knobs are made for the S550s, so they're reverse lockout-compatible. They were specifically designed keeping in mind the pull-up style or reverse lockout mechanism, but they don't leave a large gap between the bottom of the knob and the top of the factory boot, either. As far as price, these shift knobs costs right around $50, and they're actually on the less expensive side when we compare them to the other options that are out there right now, but just by a small margin. There are some more expensive billet aluminum knobs that are available if you prefer the look and feel of those, as well as other options that are not the classic 8 ball style. So the install here is really pretty easy. The shift knob doesn't come with any Loctite, though, and you're probably going to want some, so I'd suggest just picking some up before the install. The shift knob is very easy to access, and you're going to want to start the install by putting the car in reverse first. This will help you get the height of the shift knob without any trouble. The factory shift knob just comes off easily by using the normal [inaudible 00:03:26] rule. And then it's just a matter of putting some Loctite on the threads of the shifter handle, so your new shift knob doesn't back out when you start grabbing gears. Then you take your new shift knob and thread it down into place until it gets tight, but then I'd do one rotation backwards to make sure you're giving enough room for the reverse lockout. You don't want to install the knob and then not be able to get the car in reverse. Just make sure the knob is straight, so it doesn't look goofy later on, and then let it sit so that the Loctite can set. It probably needs about an hour or two to be safe, or an afternoon if you really want to be safe. Overall, this is a one-wrench install on our scale here, and it should take just about five minutes to complete as long as we don't count the set time. Wrapping things up here, the Modern Billet Retro Style 6-Speed Shift Knob is a classic 8 ball style shift knob with a 6-speed shift pattern for the MT82-equipped S550 Mustang that still has the factory shifter handle. It's reverse lockout-compatible, and there are a handful of different color options. But the color version is being made from a resin compound, and the polished version being billet aluminum, and they're all very easy to install. You can check these out more online along with all of your other shift knob options, and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    Nostalgic Styling. Add some cool vintage styling of the 60's to your manual Mustang with a classic ball style Modern Billet Blue Shift Knob. This 2-inch blue shift knob features a white embossed 6-speed shift pattern and will certainly make a statement in any 2015-2019 S550.

    Reverse Lock-out Compatible. Specifically engineered to work with the S550 Mustang's pull-up style reverse lockout mechanism, this Modern Billet Shift Knob won't leave an ugly gap between the bottom of the knob and the top of the factory shift boot.

    High Quality Materials. This 2-inch retro inspired shift knob by Modern Billet is CNC Machined from a solid block of blue resin compound and finished with an embossed 6-speed shift pattern. There's no need to worry about paint flaking off in your hand or the shift pattern fading from daily use.

    Simple Installation. With its 12mm x 1.25 thread pattern, simply unscrew your old stock shift knob and screw on this new Modern Billet Knob in its place. Swapping out your shift knob couldn't be faster or easier, giving you a big change in only a few minutes.

    Application. This Modern Billet Blue 6-speed Shift Knob is specifically designed to fit all 2015-2019 Mustangs equipped with the MT-82 6-speed manual transmission and the stock shifter handle, including the V6, EcoBoost and GT models.

        If I lock tight this on per install instructions will I be able to get it off later when I add a short throw shifter? Or should I wait for purchase till I buy the short throw?

        • You will still be able to get it off but it will be difficult. If you are getting a short throw it may be better to hold off on the lock tight.

        Comes off easy? I tried taking my shift knob off and it won't budge. Is there lock tight on it from factory? If so do I risk breaking something if I put too much heft in my counter-clockwise twist? 1 answer

            Review from Modern Billet Retro Style 6-Speed Shift Knob - Red (15-19 GT, EcoBoost, V6)

            Looks and feels great, quality is lacking.

            Let's start with the annoying rattle that this has caused. The reverse lockout collar rattles on my car whenever I have the knob installed, mainly at idle but will sometimes happen while driving. The OEM knob apparently has tighter tolerances which prevents this. Also, the nut that they include to make aligning the knob possible, has been useless for me. As soon as the knob makes contact with it, it will just screw down with the knob, I feel that it should have some form of loctite on it to create enough resistance to prevent this.

            Add a little RED to your interior.

            A little trouble with the installation in that getting locked in place with the shift pattern in the correct orientation provided difficult. Actually locked with silicone (to allow easy removal) and it locks great.

            This shifter knob compared to stock is worth the buy. Depending on the car color it makes it look bada$$. Also took me 5 mins tops to get it installed correctly in one shot.

            Clean and Classy

            This shift knob is beautifully crafted and sits nicely in the driver's palm when shifting gears. My 2017 S550 is Magnetic Metallic and this blue compliments my car's body colour perfectly. One thing to note is that the stock shift knob is heavier (not significantly but noticeably) than this one, however, the Modern Billet knob is slightly larger in size compared to the stock one. Overall, if you are looking to make a small but impactful modification to the look of your S550, this is definitely a great one to make. PS. When uninstalling the stock knob, make sure to put the gear shifter into REVERSE prior to beginning the swap. The reason is, this will prevent the shift from bending and twisting under the pressure of trying to break through the Loctite. Install time is no more than 10 minutes; realistically depends on the difficulty you encounter when trying to unscrew the stock knob for the first time.
