I just saw a post about this topic in another forum, I think it was Gen Mod's. Some guy with a Mondeo, I believe is Handle is Isben said he bought one and had to do some modding to get it to fit. Something about an adapter plate and cutting an extra hole in the console. Cap, when you contacted steeda, did they mention anything about this? Might it be a good idea to find out for sure before-hand? thanks

Looks like it retains the reverse lockout feature and for $80 you do not get a new shift knob.

Also, you can disable the reverse lockout feature very easily if you would like to go with a different knob. One that uses set screws to attach it to the shift lever.

Also, glad to be of help on this group buy folks!

If you guys get the Steeda shifter could you post a pic of it along side the stock shifter?....

Thanks

I just talked to RPI, the company that sells the OBX short shifter. They are sending me a kit for 65 bucks (they sell them for 69 usually) so I can do a test trial. If it works, I'll let everyone know. They also said that they'd cut it to 60-65 or so (depending on the number ordered) if we were interested in a group buy. I'll let everyone know as soon as I get it if they're any problems w/ istallation, and I'll post pics. thanks

There is an update on the Steeda thread with some further explanations....

steeda tri-ax

Forgot to say that I also got the info that it would fit all with MTX75.

I bought the obx shifter i loved how it shifted very short throw.was very easy to install.But I had it on my car for 3 days and i was driving to work and stoped at a red light put the car in neutral.When i went to put it 1st it felt like the cable broke.Pulled the shifter boot up and the weld on the cable ball broke.Still trying to get ahold of obx to replace it.
