For a clean look you can add an MDL ‘Qwik-Stik ‘shifter upgrade to your TKX we will attach that as part of your order, or you can fit one yourself. This will bring the stub up into OE position by adding an offset to the manufactured position by coming up through the transmission tunnel and then over to provide a stock shift position.

‘Qwik-Stik’ Shifters are Anodized Billet Aluminum for weight savings and long life, they have a small turret to clear floor openings.

Bellville washers provide excellent detent which means positive crisp shifts, every time.

Modifications to the transmission tunnel may be required to accommodate the shifter through the floor.

This is a great option for non-console cars with just a boot on the floor.

For an OE fit, an MDL Side Shifter is the solution. MDL has modified the Tremec TKX 5-speed transmission with a side exiting shifter at the rear of the tail shaft housing.

We achieve this by carefully machining, updating, and integrating new pieces to the TKX transmission.

The MDL ‘Qwik-Stik’ shifter is a close-ratio custom-made piece that is now an integral part of the transmission. This is an upgraded transmission, this isn’t just a bolted-on shifter.

They are all prepared at our facility by hand to ensure quality & precision. Fit your factory manual console by coming over under the transmission tunnel then up through the floor.

This is desirable if you do not want to cut the tunnel in your classic.  **This option will not work with factory automatic consoles**
