Just wondering which 5 speed transmition is standard in the 99 Cobra? I am asuming it is a T-45 but not sure.

Thankyou for that. Another question, does the transmition have to be removed to install a short throw shifter?

No: You install short throw shifters from the interior.

Dewone is right, you can install the shifter from inside the car. You just take the shifter boot and center section out, should be a total of 8 screws to take off, pretty easy install even for a novice. While you're at it, I would look into a Cobrabob shifter gasket as well.

being that I am a novice, what is a Cobrabob shifter gasket. I am looking at either getting a Steeda TRI-AX shifter for a T-45 or I like the HURST shifter but am concerned that the shifter boot will not fit on the Hurst shifter.

the cobrabobshifter gasket is really big over on SVTP. It is supposed to really quiet down the transmission whine you sometimes get when installing an aftermarket shifter. Would have gotten one for mine if I hadn't made a homemade one that I'm happy with:thumbsup:

I like the HURST shifter but am concerned that the shifter boot will not fit on the Hurst shifter.I have Hurst shifters on one of my '95s and on the '03. It takes a little work, but you can make the round boot opening go over the flat bar handle.

No issues with the Pro 5.0 I put in, or the MGW I understand from the members here.

if you go the MGW route, you wont need that shifter gasket thing. MGW provides everything you will need for install. They are top notch shifters, too:thumbsup:
