Lately, I have been doing some research on something that's been bothering me for a while- the stock shifter. It's bulky, ugly and I don't like the T-handle. I have been wanting to swap out to a regular shifter ball, but haven't been able to tear into a stock 5 speed AT shifter. Before anyone asks, I have no intention of trying to pass my car off as a MT car. It's an auto for a reason, and I intended on keeping it that way.
With that said, I have come across a few designs that actually get into the the stock shifter and change the handle altogether, but I can't find any detailed install instructions or pictures.
So, let's start this thread off right- has anyone talking one apart? Has anyone modified one? Does anyone have pics of one taken apart?

Yeah, I came across that Mach II shifter by Complete Pony Services. It swaps out the t-handle for a regular ball that you push down on. But, for $200, I just can't see the value in a small thread rod, a stiffer spring, plastic shift **** and an overdrive button.
The other option is the TCI Shifter, which is a true ratchet style piece. You won't miss a gear with that thing. Now, it costs somewhere around $350, but it's a completely new shifter.
Call me old fashioned but I was trying to think of a way to add or change the gate on the stock shifter.
I know this is an old thread, but I've been looking for a replacement for my 06 GT clunky automatic shifter. I came across this thread, but can't find this company anywhere. Does anyone know where I can find a shifter like the "Complete Pony Services' Mach II Automatic Shifter"? I've looked at the TCI, but just as bulky and a little over my price range.
I plan on getting a TCI at some point just cause I HATE the the auto shifter.
But it's not a priority because it isn't needed. A tune fixed all my shifting issues.
I almost didnt buy my 06 because I hated that plastic POS shifter so much. When I saw the TCI unit I knew I had to have it. I didnt buy it right away but eventually got a great deal on a used one. Its a simple install and a great upgrade but not a performance one IMO. I dont row the gears much but still am glad I got it.
