it took about a hour to install. would have been faster and i wouldnt have had to remove my center console but the person that rebuilt my tranny put way to much rtv so the console had to come out so i could pry the stock shifter from the tranny. ive never used a hurst or mgw so i dont have much to compere to. ive heard a lot of good things about the steeda tri ax and a few bad things. i dont see any problems with mine... i love it! had problems befor with going into reverse but now it slides right in with the tri ax. shifts are shorter and in my op smooth and not very notchy at all. all in all if i had to buy this again... i would. even tho im not gonna have to cuz this thing is rock solid and will last for many many years to come.
This shfter is a great upgrade for you fox body, gear changes a WAY more precise. And if you do the adjustment rifgt youll never miss the infamous 2-3rd gear. It's a must have
I just bought a Tremec TKO 600 and with it a Steeda-Ax shifter. I have no complaints and shifting is literally fool proof. No missed shifts and 2nd to 3rd is very predictable and no problems.Yes, I would buy another one tommorow.
Very happy with not only the product itself, but had great service by Joe on the phone. Very smooth and precise shifting. I am on the low end on skill level with doing upgrades or repairs with out help, and this upgrade was done in my garage in a matter of about 30-45 minutes. Installed a new Cobra ball to finish it up. Thumbs up!!
Love everything about this shifter - short throw (even with taller setting), smooth SOLID positive feel, and spring loaded so shifting from 2nd to 3rd is a straight shot.
Being a performance shifter there is less dampening between the shifter and the handle which brings more noise into the passenger compartment, but it's not a distraction - actually sounds pretty good when winding-out 3rd.
Installation instructions clearly addressed everything. I also took advantage of having the transmission opened up by replacing the fluid with a synthetic (Royal Purple) during the shifter install.
I have loved driving my Mustang since installing this shifter. It has made my driving experience even more enjoyable with the ultra smooth shifts that seem to guide themselves into place as I shift from 1 to 3 to 5 with no jams. My car almost feels like a totally different car. I would strongly recommend this upgrade along with a synthetic fluid change while your car is unbuttoned and exposed.
Most of my Mustang colleagues told me that a replacement of the OEM Shifter would result in more fun. Yes, they were right! This shifter is a lot shorter than the Original in the 1996 Cobra. It's fun!
I bought a STEEDA because it has a well known name in replacement parts for Ford Mustang.
boy what a difference , i had installed one of those $60 shifters and did not like it one bit ,way too notchy. i installed this one and used the top holes but a short tee handle and it's perfect. best money you can spend.
shipping was fast. product took about 2 hours to install. (i changed transmission fluid while i was at it) shifts so smooth. Highly recommend.
this is the best shifter i have owned good enough that i have owned 5 mustangs and bought one for each car well worth it
I love the Tri-ax shifter. Very solid feeling shifts. Much better than stock. Every shift is made with confidence. The Steeda Tri-ax shifter I put in my 1989 Mustang GT is also nice to look at, and a shame to have to cover-up.
