Im going to cut six threads off and drop the knob down as the top threads somehow came in crooked :/

I didn't even know the shifter had threads. I though we just had the push on type.

It is I had to cut threads in it thats why if you look at the first pic its kinda tilted towards the driverside

First you pull the knob off, then cut the plastic peice off the shaft, then thread the shaft. heres a link Adding a shift knob! you dont have to cut the knob off just pull

But the factory knob is so uncomfortable. Im thinking about getting a round knob as this chinese nismo is a little to small 1.5" O.D.

Why not get the authentic Nismo knob, quite expensive but would cover that gap I think.

I dont like how its square on the end i like a round knob



Im having a knob made on the cnc lathe it will be 4.75" long and 1.75"OD with a full radius on the end and tapering to 1.35 on the base. Ill cut the threads down so the reverse barely clears. Then cover up whats left with heat shrink

It will look like this but the whole thing will be tapered and it wont be as narrow at the base

Dont cut too much. It will interfere with the reverse lever... It can be a pita to get the die to start 100% straight on that knurled crap. I had to keep trying to make the first few threads, took a few times to get the die straight. Did you use any kind of lubricate when you cut the threads? Its important too cause you can rip the threads instead of cutting them without oil/spray/lube on the metal.

yup I used hard cut hopefully the threads are better further down. I will find out after work today when I cut the threads down. But I can run the die up and down with my fingers I just dont get how the threads are crooked the die looked straight. oh well the only person that will notice is me. And im only taking off like .25" of thread to get to hoprfully better threads.

So I cut about .5" off the threads and have it set so the lock barely disengages. Much more happy with this result
