    Ball (any) shifting is the best: the feel, the look, the reduced shift times--I could go on and on. Installed this yesterday. Everything they say about balls is true! Still working on the final touches.

    Nice looking shift knob, may have to sell myself one for my SVT.

    It is a nice piece. Some go on smoother than others but the feel is great. I did fashion a small sleeve out of adhesive-backed Velcro (loop side) to fill the space gap between the bottom of the knob and the top of the lock-out. Any more than six complete turns when mounting the ball caused the lock-out to hang-up.

    That looks ridiculously good. How does it work/fit with the reverse lockout? Any side shots?

    Does that have a short shifter installed? It looks really low.

    I tried several knobs and one went on easier than another. The knob is positioned with six complete revolutions. A seventh hung up the reverse lockout. I fashioned a velcro strip to cover the gap between the knob and lockout.

    I do have the Mountune billet quick shift piece installed under the hood that nicely reduces the throw.

    This is what the positioning looks like at six complete turns. Note notch and gap directly beneath knob. That has since been covered by a small adhesive-backed Velcro (loop side) "sleeve" that allows the lockout to function smoothly.
