When fit the short shift does it matter is the car is left hand drive ?
Are they're any negatives like increased shift effort? Is the upgraded aluminum billet pieces for counter weighting to keep effort the same?
Any update from the past two weeks on whether or not it will work for the 2015? That's the only thing holding me back.
Can this be paired with the Cobb short shift plate?
Since this question was asked 3 months ago, maybe you have a different answer now... Will this fit the 2015 model?
Will this fit a 2015? If not when do you expect a 2015 version?
I'm looking to install a short shifter in my 2014 Mustang Coupe, V6. I like the looks of the Ford unit you advertise, but id there detailed installation advice available for a novice shifter installer??

The Ford Racing shifter includes a factory knob as well as a factory boot to keep that original look. The shifting mechanism itself, however, is going to provide 18% shorter throws than your factory shifter. It's going to install in the factory location, using all factory-mounting hardware.
For this installation, you need a panel removal tool, quarter-inch ratchet, 5.5mm socket, 10mm socket, and a short extension.
For a front wheel drive car, the Focus' shifter isn't terrible, but the throws are definitely in the longer side. We're looking forward to a nice improvement with our Ford Racing. We're going to start by removing the shift boot retainer located here. Basically, we're going to reach in the inside of the shift boot on the edge and carefully pull up.
Once you get the edge lifted up, you may want to use a panel removal tool and carefully work around the outside edge to get them off. The clips can be really tight to remove. Now separate the trim ring from the boot, pushing up on these little plastic tabs here. Now we're going to start disassembling the console. We're removing the three screws located here, here, and up here.
We're going to remove the trim panel. We're pulling it upward and out. To start removing the driver's side plastic trim, we've got to remove this push pin first, and there's five other attaching points that will come off once we remove the pin. Now we'll start pulling the panel away.
Now we'll pull up on the other side panel over here. The push pin on our passenger's side is located behind this panel. Now we're going to remove this panel the same way, pull out on it. Now we've got to disconnect the console harnesses right here. To remove the rest of the console, there's four more bolts we have to take off. Two of them are located here, and one on each side of the back of the console. Now we can remove the console.
Now that we have all the console pieces out of the way, you can see the shifter assembly itself. The next step will be to remove the two shifter cables located here and here. Now we can remove the four bolts that hold the shifter to the floor. We'll disconnect the shifter from the bottom of the dash.
Now we'll disconnect the shift cables from the retainers and reach on the far side of it. There's a spring. You push it down and slide the cable up and out. We're going to remove our stock shifter.
Here you can see the Ford Racing shifter. First the stock shifter we just removed. You can see they have the same OEM base, same knob and same boot. The Ford Racing's obviously much shorter. It's going to be shorter throws. Pull the boots back, and pull the shifter handles back. See the internals have also been upgraded. Not only is it a shorter throw shifter, all this plastic in here has been replaced by heavy-duty billet aluminum.
Now to install our new shifter, we basically just do the reverse of what we did to remove the old one. Now we can reconnect the shift cables. Before we reinstall everything, it's a good time to check, make sure the car goes into gear like it's supposed to. You can feel the nice and short already. We'll try reverse. Everything feels good, and we can reinstall our console.
Now that the console's seated, we'll reinstall the front screws, and now the rear screws. We can reconnect the wiring harness. We'll reinstall the side trim panel. Now the driver's side panel. Now the driver's side trim panel. Now our passenger's side trim panel. Reinstall the three small screws we removed. Now we'll put the boot into our original trim plate, and snap the trim plate into place. Now our installation is finished.
The height of this shifter is perfect. Right when you have your elbow resting on the center console, it's right where it should be. I always felt the stock shifter was a little too high for me. This is a lot more comfortable. I can keep my elbow actually on the console and shift through every gear. Ford says 18% shorter, it feels every bit of that at least.
Our Ford Racing shifter worked exactly as advertised. The throws are noticeably shorter and the height of the shifter is absolutely perfect. Installation should take you around two hours. You'll be back on the road in no time.
