Thanks for the tip! I was considering stacking washers on the outside of the boot, didn't even cross my mind to stack them under instead. Unfortunately Ace didn't have any wide washers, should have just went to the Fastenall right next to it but I only wanted one washer at the time. I'll probably end up doing that down the road though, did the washers make a big difference in weight for you?

No noticeable difference. The weight of the washers is insignificant compared to he weight of the shift knob. Just makes it look way better.

so, i was checking out some Mustang GT350 images the other day and noticed the shift knob. it has the same shift pattern, and upon further investigating, the same thread pitch as mazda, 10 x 1.25. i might have to pull the trigger on one. i see prices vary from around $70-$100 depending on site.

if anyone does feel like grabbing one make sure it is FOR THE GT350. the S550's (4 cyl, 6 cyl, GT's...) have a 12 x 1.25 thread pitch and won't fit without some modification.

SO MAKE SURE YOU GET THE ONE SPECIFICALLY FOR THE GT350. sorry for yelling.

That's not a bad idea, it's the right shape and size too. Very similar to the OEM knob. I wonder how the weight is...

That GT350 knob is a pretty good replacement.

Rocking the 4 star dragon ball. I'm sorry the thumbnail pic is sideways. I can't figure out how to change that. I rotated the pic to its upside down position and still comes out like this.

Here's the GT350 knob installed. In think it looks great! It goes with the red accents in the interior nicely. It is a bit lighter than the stock knob, so take that into consideration. It also requires you to put a bunch of washers under the shift boot to raise it up to meet the lower bottom on the new knob.

I've got mine from the dealer, it's an OEM part for the MX5 NC.

The installation was not horrible, I had to tap into the heated seats button to get power for the lighting..

US spec MS3s don't have a heated seat option.

That said there are power ports in the dash so it shouldn't be hard either way. I like it.

Basically any 12V wire will do as long as it's interrupted. Ideally you should get a wire from a light or something that already has dimming because you may not want it at maximum brightness all time.

No, I'm not in the US, you can see my location by looking at my profile.
It's not important how I found it, it's important that I did

The boot's seen better days, but zero fucks in that regard. "Go" before "Show" for this guy.

No. Luckily the hole in the handle was smaller than the shifter. and the Snapon handle is plastic I just used some pressure and pushed down so it made its own threads. Threaded it all the way down to the boot. And its tight. Not loose at all.. I'll check the part number on the handle when I go to my car. I wish it was black tho or red.

Playing around on the lathe the other day at work and made this form some old scrap shaft. Need to bore it out abother 1/4 inch to get it to sit flush against the boot. Heavier than stock and feels nice in the hand. Gets hot though.
