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. Install a classic cue ball style Modern Billet Red Shift Knob in your S550 and instantly add some nostalgic styling of the 60s to your modern Pony. This red shift knob features a white embossed 6-speed shift pattern and will make a statement in any 2015-2018 Mustang.

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 1-3/4" retro inspired shift knob by Modern Billet is CNC Machined from a solid block of red 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 Red 6-speed Shift Knob is specifically designed to fit all 2015-2018 Mustangs equipped with the MT-82 6-speed manual transmission and the stock shifter handle, including the V6, EcoBoost and GT models.

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?

CJ

  • The old shift knobs are lock-tightened straight from factory and are not the easiest to remove without force, however, the factory knobs and shifter are very strong and would not break easily when turned normally.

    Installed as per the directions and when I went to adjust it like the instructions said the threaded collar on the inside just came out. Cheap product, save your money, stock shift knob is 100x better.

    Looks Cheap

    This shift knob looks really cheap. It is way over priced for how it looks. The supplied nut and engraving instructions don't match up either. It does have a good feel in your hand. That is the only thing it has going for it. I actually set up a return but it's too much hassle. I will just spend a few extra bucks and custom paint this knob myself. I didn't even want to put this in my interior it looks so cheap. I hope this review helps someone that likes to keep their interior clean and elegant.

    Review from Modern Billet Retro Style 6-Speed Shift Knob - Blue (15-18 GT, EcoBoost, V6)

    Not What I Expected

    I was thinking that this shift knob would have more weight compared to the OEM one, I was wrong. I thought that the color would more or less be close to grabber blue, I was wrong. Overall, I'm disappointed with the results. If I could do it all over again, I would choose something that is definitively heavier than this. I will say it has a nice feel in the hand, if nothing else.

    Very easy to install only took less than 5 minutes all you need is a little medium blue thread lock and let it sit for about 30 minutes to an hour and you're good to go.

    Blue shift knob

    I like the factory fit no need for a reverse lockout adaptor. It doesn't have a "warm" feel like some of the plastic/acrylic knobs but does appear to be durable.

    Installed my new shift knob in blue. Love the feel and look. One of the first mods that can be done without breaking the bank. Just one suggestion, when installing the knob, be sure to use thread lock with the jam nut.
