Hey people I just wanna make sure that the american T5 short shifters for their T5 boxes fits our T5 boxes, i'm pretty sure they do but i wanna hear some opinions before i buy one. And for all u people wondering why i don't just buy one from australia well ours cost around $450 and the american one is under $100 delivered.

Yes, any T5 Shifter will fit. The only thing that some have had is a slight left bias toward the US driver.

I have this one http://mgwltd.com/mustang_shifter.shtml

Apart from being shorter and having less throw between gears, they have stronger springs that help to centre the stick on the shift from 2nd to 3rd.

There is a write up in my Wagon Build thread.

Thats around $95 AUD

Hey guys looking at getting a short shifter, Quick question do these ones have the positive stops that you can adjust so you dont over shift, aparently one of the main reasons the syncros stuff up.
