looks like a fun and great mod to do to stop those missed shifts when you really want to move along. gonna have to ask if there is a pic of it in the car to see if it lookes alot different after lifting the mounting plate possibly cut and rethread to make a bit shorter (sense the lenght isnt changed) for a custome shift nob
after you do this mod u said u can use any shift knob. What size shift knob would you order and would u just glue it on or what????? Im definatly thinking of doing this cause its better to spend 4 hours doin it than spend $250 and spend 2 hours intsalling it from saabsavior.
I have a MOMO carbon fiber shift nob on mine. It was really easy to put on although I did saw a bit of the rod down a bit because it was a little taller than the stock one. I can post pictures if anyone wants me to.
Here are some pics of my MOMO shift knob and boot. It was very easy to install. I removed the hard plastic piece at the top of the shaft and the plastic pieces for the "lift to get into reverse". There is a rectangular plastic piece at the base that holds the boot in place. I just used a knife to cut holes so the tabs could fit through the boot and hold them both in place. The knob has 3 screws that hold it in place. I sawed off the threaded part of the shaft so it would be around the same length as it was stock. This way the angle of the throws are maintained and you don't grind at all. Thats about it. If anyone has questions just ask!
The original boot that came with the car was the rubber one with the "folds" in it. I really just thought it was plain ugly. I like the leather ones better. I think they have a more clean and classy appearance.
The switch is my dual stage boost controller. I flip it, and I get 21psi instantly :twisted: I just got the camera for christmas, its a Fuji FinePix S5000. I can take up to 6 megapixels with it Plus I got a wide angle lens, filters and a couple of other accessories. Going to Wisconsin to celebrate new years and go skiing so I will see all of you next year!! (or saturday :wink: ) Happy New Years everyone!!!
