good one. i just put that on my list of things to do and check when picking up my ride.
I just received the Steeda shifter I ordered along with the group purchase yesterday, and man it feels great! The handle even sits back farther, so you don't have to reach up anymore to shift.
Anybody get their shifter yet from this GP?
I can tell you guys that most of you will probably not be happy with the stock handle on the Pro5.0. It might be worth checking if they can be ordered w/ the medium handle which is very similar to the Steeda handle. It brings the shift knob back to a much better position and I think most would be happier with it.
How uncomfortable will it be?? I already have a pro5.0 in my 01 ...will it be like that or worst?
jmir - it should be the same. So if you don't have any problem with it in your '01, you should be fine. I had the stock, short handle on it when I first got it and used that for awhile, but I much prefer the medium handle w/ the offset in it. I took some pics of a Steeda Triax handle next to the Pro5.0 med handle side by side. When I get a chance, I'll post them.
You will NOT like the stock handle!
I am actually using the ORIGINAL STOCK handle 'till my MGW comes in.....
Here's a pic....
The instructions call for you to cut out a piece (circle) from the rubber that's attached to the brass plate that deadens the sound.
this circle makes it fit perfect around the base of your new PRO 50
The sound is not as bad as the Tri-Ax that I had in my ROUSH.
Any way to get to the point......I had a brain fart today and looked at the stock shifter again and realized that it had a rubber boot on top......it appeared to be to small to fit around the base of the PRO 50 but guess what it actually fits!!
...... and it's much quieter!!!!!!!
here's some pics.......
this is of the ORIGINAL stock after I just removed the boot...
This is one after I put the boot over the PRO 50 BASE..
I received the Pro 5.0 shifter this afternoon (Friday 9/27) via UPS. It was ordered through the Group Purchase. The shifter looks great, but the knob has to go! Hopefully, the stock knob will fit.
and yes the stock knob fits.
