I am currently putting my 89coupe together and I was wondering if anybody could answer my question. My brother gave me a short throw shifter from an 01 Bullit with the 3650 tremec. Will this shifter work on the T-5? It fits well but could it cause damage? It seems to make more noise when shifting.

No it wont work. You need a T-5 shifter lol. I think the shaft is longer or shorter on it but im not sure

They wouldnt make a shifter only made for a T-5 if the 3650 shifter worked too ;)

If you want to know what brand you should buy I can give you my opinion. I have a Hurst and I love it I know people with the Steeda Tri Ax and they love that. Ive also heard good things about the pro 50 but the handle is so short on it if your over 6 foot tall its a reach

I got a pro 5.0 shifter and I installed a 1/4 inch plate to set the shifter back 2 inches.
I drove many mustangs with all different shifters and I recommend the MGW

a coworker has a hurst and says he like the way it shifts, but the angle of the shifer lever drives him nuts.
I have an MGW. I love it. Very good quality.

yeah thats about the same way mine is........who knows maybe it is the u-joints goin out......those would be the u-joints on the drive shaft.....i would think if those are bad my driveshaft would have flown out because i have hit some high speeds in my car since it has had this problem.....plus i think i have a motor or transmission mount that is broke because when i accelerate hard the transmission shifts to the right pretty hardcore
