As acquired, my CRI came with the stock T5 shifted handle for the 90 Mustang, with its dog leg bend coming rearwards. It was too far back to be comfortable.

When I reinstalled my powertrain, I had one of the "short shift" units on the t5. It sticks up way too far thru the hump cover, about 3inches.

So, I switched back to the stock shifter plate. I then tried using the Hurst short straight shift handle for the T5. It is about 6" long. It is a flat plate chrome type of handle. It was, IMHO, a bit too tall and I did not like the look.

So, I ordered a 289 style shifter and boot/trim ring. It is shorter than the Hurst and is straight up. I also got a black ball with the 5 sp diagram on its top. I will run with this config, it is a good height, right position and I think looks more period correct.
