F-150? thanks for the help

a shifter is the only "must" mod on a car. it's definitely the biggest bang for the buck, and it just *might* save your transmission some grinding over the years.

b&m ripper.
i converted three (3) steed tri ax guys to b&m in about 3 years.

yea im thinking my game plan is to prolly get the stang, later that week but a new shifter, then as time goes by. go out buy a 8.8 w/3.73s and then get a roots blower with about 7 or 8 psi. btw tire is there any news on that?

i have a steeda tri-ax on mine and it is very nice. the gears find themselves when i'm shifting. the only thing is you have know when to shift. you don't wanna be wearing out the synchros prematurely.

and how does it feel to drive a trunk?:D

Just a quick question to toss at anyone who might be able to add something...
How much work is involved with changing out the stock shifter to a short shifter?
I understand that would depend on the person doing the work but does anyone by chance have a "how to" to add on this one?

what stang are you testing, the pre 99s i can see but the 99s up will take an eclipse easy.....and a new shifter will make a world of difference, and on another note the stang is tons cheaper and tons easier to work on, heck you can buy a nice motor or tranny for 600 bucks~

it was aginst my 03 auto, yes mine is alittle quicker and all but not as much fun to drive. but im not gettin the eclipse for a few reasons number one being its harder on insurance. but i want a 5 spd so bad i just cant find a way to get one.if only i could swap my tranny for 600 bucks

a little quicker... the auto sure but the manual will have a half second + on the eclipse (new one) and one second on the older ones lol.

just sell the car and buy a used 5 speed they are very cheap resale value is sad.
