Thanks

Removed the OEM knob today and installed the Blox Racing Type R Billet knob (Limited Series neo-chrome). Don't have a pic of it installed (did it at night), but here's a pic of the Blox knob itself. It's a 450g bit, so it's weightiness improved the shift feel a lot. Now, I just have to install the Steeda STS this wekend to complete it. Getting the stock knob to come off of the boot clip was singularly the hardest part.

It's not on the Steeda STS (trying to find time for that), but here it is on the stock shifter. I used the provided washer from Blox to secure the boot to the base of the knob.

Does anyone know the part number/cost for the silver ring of plastic? I am just curious in case I were to break it trying to remove it.

I doubt you would break the ring. It doesn't hold anything. The boot retainer comes off from underneath the boot

I am talking about the silver ring that clips into the console. I would assume there is a chance of breaking that when you are are trying to remove it from the console as your first step in changing out the knob.
