    Would that work with a stock lever? That's the one thing I dislike about my momo knob... the boot doesn't actually match up at the bottom.

    i believe the guy in the other thread had a stock lever but a momo knob with the allen screws. i think it just depends on the design of the bottom of the knob. i'd give it a try, so far so good over here.

    I'm nearly positive that mine is threaded, and only threaded. But thanks anyway.

    How much does this cost?

    the Momo knob weighs about 11 or 12 ounces according to Oakos Automotive (they list the knob weight with the boot as 13oz, which equates to 368 grams).

    here's the Shift Knob I use it was a big lighter than stock and way more comfortable. Momo Nero $100 new Seen on ebay used for $50 and in perfect shape.

    I just bought the same shift knob and tried to install mine. Did you have any problems getting the bottom screw to tighten up ? If I screw the allen screws too hard, I can't get the bottom screw fit.

    +1 for WC Lathe Werks as well. Just installed the stainless WRX Piston and it is awesome. Great quality and the added weight is a huge plus. They have a great variety and can do all sorts of custom work.
