Anyone put a shift light in your 2011 Mustang GT yet?

I've got a Raptor shift light in my '02 and plan to remove it before I trade it in so I can transfer it to my '11. I'm pretty sure that it will work in the '11 I'm just not sure if the installation procedure is the same with all the changes between the '02 and the '11. So has anyone put a shift light in their '11 GT yet? Thanks.

It does, very hard to miss at night, I have not put "my color" in red for this very reason.

I put my gauge color to red with a blue halo for a superman look... Does anyone know what will happen if I hit the limiter? does the gauge do anything if it's already Red?

That's cool about the tach changing colors but I guess I'm a creature of habit, I like the shift light, especially if the peak HP isn't at he same RPM as the tach turns red. So when somebody does find out just let me know, thanks.

Bump on this one. I'm thinking about getting a Raptor 'dual mode' light. Anyone have this one setup on their 2011GT? I am curious as to how to wire it in. Looking for the idiots guide to installation :-)

Can you program a different colored light for staging and one for shift?

Raptor updated their site with install instructions for our 2011's for single and dual-mode lights. Here's the link:
