Mustang Weighted Shift Knob
Easily add a more positive feel to your shifting with this 2015-2017 Mustang weighted shift knob from Boomba Racing! The factory shift knob comes in at a light weight 140g while this Boomba Racing weighted shift knob comes in at 220g. By increasing the weight at the top of the shifter, you're increasing momentum which gives a greater mechanical advantage. This results in a more positive feeling throw when you're shifting through the gears faster.
This shift knob features a precision CNC machined brass core which is where the extra weight comes from. A delrin shell is then used for durability, excellent appearance, and temperature management. The delrin shell prevents the surface from getting too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. A laser-etched shift pattern and Boomba logo make this shift knob a great addition to any S550 interior!
-Fits 2015-2017 Mustang GT, V6, and EcoBoost
I bought this shift knob to replace my light weight factory knob. I also decided to replace my shift boot and shift adapter all at the same time. Overall this shift knob is pretty decent. Its definitely a lot heavier than the factory knob which is what I was looking for. The only thing I don't like is the lettering on the top. It doesn't appear to be etched into the actual knob and I am concerned that over time it might start to fade. Also the Boomba Racing logo on the bottom isn't really centered. I know its a little picky but I am very detail oriented so I wish it would have also been etched and centered a little better. The install was pretty straight forward. I was skeptical about the need to use a hair dryer to heat it up but you definitely need to!! If you try to install without heating it, it wont go all the way down on the threads and it wont match up centered. Heat it up for about 10 mins and use a rubber glove to twist it. You will have to put some muscle behind it for it to actually move. Overall its pretty good, assuming the lettering stays!!
I now have a new 5.0 L 302CID 434 bhp GT. I have installed Flowmaster Mufflers, a K&N Air Filter and a full frontal Clear Bra. I had a 2012 V6 which was featured here on the LMR "Submit My Ride" pag...
