Just to reiterate my post on the short throw sticks for T5 shifters for those who who may not have seen it...

I am planning to bulk buy some Pro 5.0 T5 Power Tower Shifters from the US. At $159 (on sale!) these will work out roughly the same, if not cheaper than the B&M Ripper Shifters, while being a stronger unit. The Mustang guys seem to prefer to the Pro 5.0 shifter, and best of all you can use it with your original stick, or a custom stick such as EDxr8EBGTs so as to avoid the problem of US LHD lean in their sticks.

If anyone is interested in being part of a group purchase of a Pro T5 Power Tower Shifter, please PM me.

Note that those with T56 or T3650 (you lucky T3 owning-mongrels! :s3 ) gearboxes can also benefit from these pro 5.0 shifters, though they will be a little more expensive.

These are relatively easy to swap over frm your existing shifter, I'll even print instructions with pictures I found at a Mustang site.

As far as I am aware, these Pro 5.0 shifetrs should bolt straight onto E*s and AU1s without hassle. Apparantly there is a minor issue fitting these to AUII/III but as this will affect me, but they will fit - I'll advise owners of these cars of the issue and it's solution when I sort it out.

I have tried getting a bulk discount, but the sale price of $159 for the T5 shifters is as low as I can find, as apparantly this is just above cost. We may be able to get discount shipping for a 10+ order, but I am weaiting to hear back from the speed shop on this. $159US curently works out at around $300AUD, with shipping and import taxes (GST, custom duty) on top.

I will look into this for you guys and see if i can get you a better discount with my dealer license. Remember that if I ship one box then it is cheaper. Also, depending on when we reach the limit if it is near the date of the travel i may have to show up with a very heavy suitcase that will be empty when i return to the states.

I know that these can be installed in-car in the Mustangs, but I heard somewhere that you have to remove the transmission for them to be installed in Falcons? Is that true?

I'm not sure Martin, I'm checking into this with someone who has put Pro 5.0 shifters into Falcons.

Way to go VenomXR. Good to see a proper Aussie group purchase.

Shame I already have my B&M :(

Martin

At least on ED's and I'm sure EA/EB also the metal floorplan blocks access to the 2 front bolts for the shifter base so the tranny does have to be dropped. Can't say for the newer Falcons.
