New Shelby Shifter installed!

I will have the full review in a few more days, but suffice it to say that I h a t e d, HATED the stock 2011 GT500 shifter. It was the worst shifter I've ever used on a Mustang. It was notchy and vague with more squish than a weight watchers convention.

Shifting the GT500 with that stock shifter made the entire driving experience miserable for me. Every shift was mush, mush, snap, void, mush, mush, snap from gear to gear.

I had heard that the Shelby shifter was the way to go. Aside from being a total PITA to install, the new shift feel is SO much better.

More soon.

Actually we put the review in our Tech section quite a while ago:
Shelby Shifter Installation

But for a long term report, the shifter is holding up great. The car's shifting is VASTLY improved over stock.
