Shift Knobs (hope this is right section for this)

My Cobra came with a "Dojo" shift knob, and thats all i know about it, its a chrome ball. i HATE it. its uncomfortable to shift with and gets scorching hot when left in the sun. (every day). In Mustangs past ive put in mostly T handle shifters. i just like how they feel. back when i had my last Mustang (07-08 or so) i ordered a really cool looking T handle from Modular Powerhouse (now out of business according to searching google) it had a really cool mustang logo on the top of it and was made from Billet Aluminum didnt get hot and felt good in my hand. does anyone know where i could find one similar or if they have one willing to sell? oh and it was a threaded shift knob not one of those alen screw ones, like what on my car now... constantly have to tighten it.

Shift Knobs (hope this is right section for this)

I'd suggest looking on eBay, or maybe check and see if AM (American Muscle) has them available on their site. AM has several reps on the forum, you can PM one of them. They can steer you in the right direction. Meanwhile, I'll do some digging and let you know what I find.

I had a cobra head. Lol. It was seriously hard to deal with but looked crazy cool in the car. It wasn't the cheap silver looking one. I'm sure there is a company out there making exactly what you're looking for. It's finding them that's the trick maybe if we all help search.

I am sort of with you. Everyone seems to have a ball type. I like the T handle but trying for something unique. Anyone know of a place that will make a one off?

i like how the allen screw ones are cheaper but a few "hard" shifts later and u have to re-tighten them. so far the only threaded ones ive found only have the "Hurst" or "B&M" logos (which i dont want) guess the search continues lol!

Do NOT buy that T-Handle. I tried it and if AM did not immediately refund me my $20 it was going in the trash. It uses a plastic insert and then the allen screw goes into that... yeah...

For a T handle with the threaded nut, BBK or Hurst and that's really it. I mean there are the UPR billet ones... I have not seen a non-metal T-Handle tho. I don't even like the stock knobs that much because they aren't totally locked into place.

And yes, never ever ever buy anything with an allen set screw. All those do is loosen up over time and move on you at the worst possible moment while tearing up the threads on your shifter arm.

And if it doesn't come with a jam nut, MGW sells jam nuts on their website. I have a CNC machined one from them on mine. Scroll down toward the bottom of the page and you should them.

Wouldn't mind having a cue ball on my ecoboost. Guessing that I would have to relocate the shifter safety switch though...

i have found a TON of ball shifters that have the "Snake" and "Pony" i want but i want it on a T-handle. im quite stubborn about that lol. i HATE the ball feel. i want a handle i can grab and "man handle" gears with lol. ever since i had my first T-handle ive always loved them. im wondering how costly it would be to find a shop with a CNC machine and just have them make me a custom one off? surely there are a few shops in San Digo Ca. id like it to be local to save on shipping lol. Thanks again everyone for your input, has given me lots of options should my T-handle endeavor get squashed. lol

One note, i already have a Short throw shifter, all im looking for is the knob.

Note the base model 2012 steering wheel of hard plastic that I wrapped in friction tape with a contrasting centering strip (it's now yellow) old school rat rod simple and cheap like a good date.

remember to get the retainer collar. I had good luck emailing them for what I wanted.

forgot you have the lever lock...
