I thought the idea was to reduce induction noise. The au had a similar thing just not as easy to remove :-(

Well since I took it off there is a definite increase in induction noise (deep grumble). Other than that there is really no noticeable difference, I suppose the only way to know for sure would be to stick it on a dyno with/without and compare, I really can't see it making a big difference to the torque though, looks like a gimmicky after market add-on to me, if Ford were smart they could have made it an optional extra and charged a s**t for it's fuel saving ability (or some other rubbish) :lol:.

To be honest I think its a great idea. There is probably such a small difference between the flow rates that you cant notice it when driving. BUT by making it piss easy to remove, those who want to can, but they also cant complain about any intake noise either as they brought it on themselves.

it is a sexy looking knob tho :P lol

i think i remember driving a car (ba/bf manual) and its gear know was very lose as well could spin around, perhaps yours has come undone a bit, duno how hard it wud be to separate the leather boot and then spin it a few times to tight up, then re attached boot (if that is the issue) as for going up and down im stumped on that one, will leave it for someone with an FG to comment on. your olds mans g6et doesnt spin around right? does it move up though when in tiptronic?

G6ET would have the six-speed transmission and associated shifter. This FG XT has the five-speed tranny and associated shifter. Do they work differently?
The BA, BF four-speed shifter worked in a different way to the six-speed.
