  Pretty Good

Shifts really well for the price! Mine didn't come with extra springs or washers, unfortunately.

  Econoshift T-5 Short Throw Shifter!!!!
By on 3/6/2014
I just recently order this shifter with a adjustable clutch cable kit for my son's 94 GT. My first impression of the shifter is VERY good. Seeming very well made unit. The install was relatively easy and straight forward. We did watch a few install videos to eliminate any questions. The instructions were 8/10 but straight forward. I did use loctite "blue" on the bolts to eliminate any loosening.

How it performs: WOW what a difference, the stock unit felt very sloppy and cheap compared to his one. The shift travel is way shorter and more precise. It will take a minute to get used to, but a major improvement none the less!

I highly recommend it! I am curious how much better a more expensive unit would be, but I highly doubt twice the price!!!



Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

What are the extra springs for I got 3 of them but it looks n feels better then the stock one
From LatemodelRestoration.com: The springs are so you can adjust the shifter tension if you desire.

  Decent shifter for the price
By on 9/13/2014
I bought this to replace my stock mustang shifter. As far as it being a short throw shifter I can't tell any difference from the stock unit, However it does shift better than the stock shifter. The positive stops are great, prevents you from bending the shift forks. If you are looking for a short throw shifter I suggest purchasing one of the more expensive ones. If your looking for a good replacement for your stock shifter this one works great.

  Awesome shifter
By on 3/3/2014
For the price this shifter is amazing ! Yeah you can buy a hurst or steeda shifter which are better but compared to the money this thing is awesome! Of course watch the video and make sure to sure to use loctite , because the screws will back out if u don't. But after adding that and reassembling it all works awesome no more missed 3rd gear shifts!!

  What a difference.
By on 12/24/2013
I installed this shifter in my 97 Mustang base model. I just had to remove the shifter boot to access the old shifter. Installation was very easy since I also had the silicon gasket set . The shifts are very solid now with none of the old shifter's soft rubbery feel. Great price and well worth the upgrade.

  Good value and sturdy
By on 4/14/2014
I watched the video online but decided to install with console in place. The lower shift boot frame is tough to get lined up during reassembly. Also my original T5 shifter was glued on good after 26 years. I loosened the spring set screws to install the new shifter flat onto the transmission. Don't forget to RTV the new one on a cleaned surface and loctite the fasteners of your new shifter. Protect interior and remove radio faceplate if new and have box ready to put the dirty old shifter in. Shifter Feels about 30% shorter throw and firmer engagement. I put the original Ford shifter knob on since my after market threads were too fine.

  must have
By on 3/14/2014
I must say I was a little worried about going for a cheaper shifter. Very glad I did now saved $100 vs other shifter and that's more money for new parts. Willing to bet you couldn't tell the difference between this shifter and a pro 5.0..... I know I can't and my cousin can't ether he says he wished he had saved money and went they route that I went. Love the feel when my car shifts now.

  great service
By on 2/18/2014
I ordered a shifter for my mustang and it was exactly as I thought it would be. Fits great and shifts awesome. However, the convertible top cylinders were out of stock so I ended up ordering them from another company. This was not Late Model Restorations fault, just circumstances. Great service and on time delivery.

  never goes into gear
By on 7/20/2014
i bought this shifter and so far, it will never go into second and will never go into reverse, the forks inside the transmission are starting to get messed up and am very frustrated with it, i would actually like to get into gear going down the track, not miss a gear...
From LatemodelRestoration.com: We apologize that you are having issues with this shifter. It sounds like the adjustable shift stops are not adjusted correctly. Please expect a call from a customer service representative on the issue shortly.
