These days the automatic transmissions work so well that drivers who choose a manual transmission must really love that visceral connection between man and machine. There is nothing quite like the control and feel you get banging through the gears on your own, but more often than not the factory shifters are so dampened and isolated they rob you of some of that fun.
Though the stock shifters have gotten better over the years, the remote-linkage used on the MT-82 six-speed manual is designed to dampen and isolate that pesky noise, vibration and harshness that the OEs fight every days. It does that well, but that means it will move on its rubber mounts and give up some precision when shifted in anger.
For enthusiasts the shifter is something you really feel everyday, so upgrading to a more precise aftermarket unit is often high on the list of modifications. A company long associated with Mustang shifter upgrades is Steeda Autosport, which already offers a lever and support upgrade for the stock shifter mechanism. However, the company now offers a billet replacement shifter for the S550 MT-82.
