Looks like the short throw sport shifter on A.M which is the one i got and its pretty legit but thats from A.M so no telling if your gonna get what u see in the picture on ebay. If it is whats in the pic tho it should be pretty legit, only problem i have with my cheapo shifter from A.M is the handle always comes loose from the shifter those damn torx bolts are hard to get tight without stripping em

Oh ya these shifters are very loud by the way, they like to click and clack around alot and make alot of noise switching gears.

Sometimes cheap will end up costing more in the long run. I like my MGW shifter.:)

+1 i stripped a bolt on that cheapo shifter when i dropped my tranny out and the only reason i left them in is because they are a bitch to torque down with a allen wrench. The design on those is horrible and the parts are not that great of quality. I just ordered a MGW tonight cuz im already sick of the cheap shifter after 8 months of use and i dont even wanna bother looking for the type of bolt it uses. Plus it seems MGW is the king of short shifters for stangs. Tri-ax just looks like a nicer version of the cheapo's and Hurst's look like stock shifters with no stopping points. I wish i would have just gotten a MGW in the first place... >.<

you could fix that problem by drilling the threads out and using longer bolts that go all that way through with lock nuts

Hey Mr. Opal Frost paint job.
Google the "Opal Frost Mustang Registry"........My girlfriends car is #2 in the registry because I added it when we first found out about it. Or she added it, can't remember lol.....Anyway its a limited production color so you can get pics of your car in the registry if you haven't joined it already.
