: Shifter Knob question

I'm looking at options for shifter knobs right now on my '05 V and noticed that under the knob itself is a hex nut attached to the boot.

From what I was told when I bought the car it has a short shifter in it. I have a stock knob right now, I'm wondering if it is threaded or what? From all the pics I've seen on the web none of them have the hex nut under the knob.

I'm trying to figure out if I can put a V2 knob on there.

Thanks.

katech includes a hex nut with their shifter.

youll need to get a tap for whatever knob if it is indeed a katech as it isnt a common pitch for knobs

That jam nut looks ... so ... industrial.

It's one of the only things that I was scratching my head on when I got the car. I figured it had something to do with the short shifter. I'll see what I can come up with when I put the V2 knob on.

Am I the only one who wants a Hurst T bar shifter in my car?

Why bother when you can get an 8 ball knob?

Yea the 8 ball is cool but a t handle kind of brins back memories of the movie 2 lane blacktop and old drag cars. Love it.

It looks like this shifter. Maybe these were the guys that had the car before you.

Small update.

Bought a 5/8"-18 Tap and went to town on a new V2 Knob courtesy of Luke @ Lindsay. I must say he's awesome.

I also wrapped the shifter bezel in 3M Dinoc for the time being until I can figure out a better solution to cover the scuffed up rubberized paint texture. I also hid the beautiful hex nut from the Katech Shifter under the boot :)
