If its for your model car, then relatively easy if you're good at putting things together. It's basically remove old. Take pictures (lots). And put back together and it should go in the same way. I have no experience changing shifters so don't take my word for it

As long as you have basic mechanic skills it shouldn't be too hard. The one thing I have learned from reading about other people installing shifters is the O/D button is a bit of a pain to install into the new shifter.

Oh yeah, those damn OD buttons. I wanted to see how hard it was to replace a shifter, so I went to the salvage yard and found a mustang. Tried to take off the shifter and made a mess with it. I recommend practicing on a junked mustang first so you can get a feel for how it's gonna be and you won't go into your project blind.

I don't know if it is a lot different than replacing a shifter for a manual car. But I put a short shifter in mine and it was very easy. First time. About an hour of removing old parts and some YouTube videos for instal lol then got it all together.
Simple for mine just unbolt and then re-bolt lol

Well... In the next year somewhere im gonna put either a 302 or a 4.6 in there... I havnt made up my mind yet
Unless u go 5.0 u will spend way more than the car is worth and having an sn 95 u might as well sell it and get a 94 or 95 5.0 car and build it

wont help performance at all but the stock ones look bad so it would be an upgrade at that
Well driving an auto gets boring... But a rachet shifter makes it more fun.. And it makes it look better...
