Threaded Shift Knobs

ive done some searching and cant seem to find an answer besides buy a short throw...

are there any shift knobs that are threaded for a 2.2L manual? i know the shifter itself isnt threaded, and i would have to do that myself, but i just dont want to spend any more money on universal ones that loosen after time.

thanks in advance

Short answer no. If you plan to thread the stock shifter go buy a knob you like with relatively similar dimensions and thread the handle. OOOORRRRR...... you could buy a cosmos short throw for $100 and call it a day.

I had the TWM shifter. I liked it much more than the Cosmos, but Banker would disagree with me. It is a lot more expensive though.

I don't like my TWM too much because it has so much play in each gear. The BPS is the only one that will accept aftermarket or the stock shifter. Look at their shift knobs for other options and it'll still be about $50 cheaper than the TWM after buying a shift knob too.

Play in each gear? In what way?
