The stock size is a rather weird 12MM threads. The standard is 3/8-16, thats probably why your "die cast metal one" doesn't fit. I searched for a long time to find the **** I wanted in the proper size. Ended up getting one from UPR (http://www.uprproducts.com/). You have to buy one specifically for the 05+ mustang. There isn't a whole lot of variety in this size. If you ever install and aftermarket shifter, get one with the standard size threads...I made the mistake of getting the OEM thread size.

Another choice would be to get a custom made one from http://www.koolknobs.com/

Yes 12 mm is the same as M12. Ford uses a m12 x 1.25 thread. I have a Steeda Tri-ax and they use M12 x 1.75. That is a 12 mm dia. thread and the threads are 1.75 mm a part.
