Hey, what's going on, guys? Adam here with AmericanMuscle.com. Today I'm bringing you a quick review of the Rally Stripe 6-speed shift knob with the 5.0 logo in black with white lettering fitting all 2015 GT V6 and EcoBoost Mustangs. The Rally Stripe 6-speed shift knob with the 5.0 logo I have here today is going to be for the S550 owner out there looking to switch up their factory shift knob with a more classic 8-ball styling with the custom look with the white rally stripes and the 5.0 logo. With the modern design to the classic Fastback styling, it's not a bad idea to go nostalgic with your interior as well. The shift knob here offers that classic 8-ball styling from the 60s and 70s models that offer this type of shift knob, giving you the classic feel with a modern race track styling. Obviously when you're shopping around for shift knobs for your S550, you want to keep in mind the reversing aspect. This one will utilize a reverse lockout and won't leave the ugly gap between the bottom of the shift knob and the top of the shift boot. Obviously the option I have with me today is the black shift knob with the white shift pattern, white rally stripes and the white 5.0 logo painted on the side. With this one, you won't have to worry about any of this fading. It will hold up to the test of time. The materials of which I'll touch on in a little bit. I do want to point out that the black with white option is reversed as well. You can get the white with the black or even some other options out there with different colors. You can even get...if you're not interested in the 5.0 logo, you can try for the running pony or even the blank one. It's obviously going to be completely up to the user preference. The shift knob I have here today was manufactured out of a black resin compound, a very high quality material for strength and durability and a long lasting lifetime. The shift pattern, rally stripe and 5.0 logo are inlaid and polished smooth on the top of the shift knob to give it that long lasting durability and to make sure it doesn't fade off in your hands. This shift knob was meant to work with your factory shifter, so if you're rocking the aftermarket shifter in the S550 you want to check with the thread pattern to make sure it matches the thread pattern of the actual shift knob. This one offers a 12 millimeter by 1.25 thread pattern. You want to match that up with your aftermarket shifter to make sure it works before purchasing. I do want to point out that if you're rocking a Hurst shifter, Hurst shifters are specifically made to work with a Hurst shift knob so this one unfortunately won't work for you.Price wise, for this particular shift knob expect to be spending just about $80 which is definitely a little bit more than some of the other knobs out there on the market. I do want to point out that this one is to be expected with the rally stripes and the 5.0 logo. The added customization definitely bumps up the price. I think in my opinion this definitely gives a lot of bang for your buck and a really sleek interior styling for your Pony. For the installation process, I'm not even sure you can call it an installation. Anyway, this one, all you're going to have to do is take a few minutes of your time to unscrew your factory shift knob, screw on the lock nut that's provided with the kit, and then screw on the shift knob itself and you're good to go. Overall, I would say two, three minutes top, something anybody can do at the driveway at home or even at a red light, like I said. Definitely giving this one a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. Just to wrap things up, guys, if you're the owner of a 2015 Mustang, whether it's a GT, V6 or EcoBoost, and you're looking to pick up the classic 8-ball styling shift knob to replace your factory one but you want to get a little more customization out of it, you might want to check out the Rally Stripe 6-speed shift knob with the 5.0 logo and in the black with white lettering available right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Love this old timey looking shifter ball! It’s a little lighter as far as weight compared to factory shifter knob. So it may feel a little different at first, and of corse it does sit a little higher, but I absolutely love it. Now that I’m used to it I don’t think I could go back. Excellent product!Helpful (2)

Way to tall
This knob with the lock nut sits way to tall. Shifting with this knob was uncomfortable and only felt right when shifting holding the shaft under the knob. I’m a big guy with large hands. Returned it and got the same knob that had been bored out to fit the lift to reverse mechanism. Love that one.Helpful (2)

Looks great! Old Skool Race Car inspired w/ the ball knob. Nice polished finish and really like the 5.0 inlay and stripes... catches your eye every time you open the doors....it’s bigger than the stock knob too and so it’s got a much better feel to it when banging gears than the stock knob...unless you’re one of those dudes w/ small hands.Helpful (3)
Should I use Loctite as well as the Collar Adapter?
Does this sit higher than the factory shift knob?
With the jam nut collar adapter, the shift knob would sit slightly higher than the factory knob.
What is the weight of this shift knob?
The Rally Stripe 6-Speed Shift Knob weighs approximately .27 lbs.
Does the jam nut have to be used with this shift knob or can I just apply Loctite instead of using the nut.
Hi, We suggest using the jam nut for proper fitment.
