Please help me find my dad something for his Focus!

Okay, so I don't know very much about Fords (I own a Dodge Neon that i've lightly modded), but my dad has a 2007 Ford Focus. He likes the SRT shifter I have in my car and would like something similar for his birthday in a few weeks.

Problem is, I've searched and asked the dealership, but I haven't found anything like it. I don't think he needs a Short Throw Shifter or anything fancy, just something with a low boot and a round knob like this:



Could anyone suggest something that'd work? Like do I just need a new boot and shaft, and what would work? Or do I need an entirely new assembly?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks a lot Blackout. Will I need to buy a new boot to go with that?

the boot will just scrunch up a little more than stock.

You can get a new boot at pepboys or autozone that will "fit better". The stock one will be fine too if you keep the stock shift knob.

I'm not sure I want to keep that one; I'd like to get him a ball knob of sorts. Thanks again for the tips!

I had a $10 shifter from Autozone and it was allright. The only reason I went back to stock was because it was a bit longer than the original so I felt like I was shifting a big rig...but they make an 8-ball one like that, if you're still interested
