OK I want a ratchet shifter for my EF Futura. Already got an electrical shift kit on the box so want a shifter to suit.

a ratchet shifter will do nothing your current shifter won't.. they are designed for mechanical boxes like c10's and t400's and such where there is a hard link from the box to the shifter not an electrical one.

buddy, there a universal item, you don't buy them to suit a certain box. or not the shifters themselves.
you'll need to find a cable bracket and connection for the box though - which don't exist for our BTR91 and 93LE's, so it'd be a custom job.

most auto part storesshould be able to get you a shifter though and then you decide how long you want the cable to be, and order one that size. check out the B&M website to figure which mdoel you'd prefer though...

it will change the style you change gears in. the BTR91 and 93LE's still have a mechanical link from shifter to box for the gear shifter stalk.

Get a right hand drive mega shifter, you'll get less hassles from the cops for that one. All the other B&M shifters are designed for LHD. As mentioned above you'll need to modify or fabricate a bracket for the cable to connect to the trans.
