I am steering towards the Raptor shift light. I am interested in what you have. Remember, we have the coil on plug in the GT so it's different in terms of the hookup, so not all will work.
Thanks!

I've looked around, and I like the Raptor best of what's available, but it's still too big for me to stick to the dash. I have discussed with some guys at work about making our own and marketing it. There are some features I'd like to have that nobody makes. It may never happen, though.

I thought ALL the shift lights on the market were too big and conspicuous. I don't want a flashlight mounted on my dash or A-pillar. So I made my own. It tucks into my head liner when not in use so it's totally out of sight. It pops out in a second when I need to use it. Here's an bit of one of my previous posts. (The entire post is here: http://www.allfordmustangs.com/forums/showthread.php?t=51678)

Eventually I will use the 2nd stage of the FJO controller to contol a second nitrous bottle giving me even more flexability delivering nitrous but for now I am using it to drive a STEALTH shift light. I made this from an ultra bright single LED. I just pull it our of the ceiling liner and BAM, instant stealth shift light. (www.nutt.us/Mustang/shiftlight.jpg www.nutt.us/Mustang/shiftlightin.jpg www.nutt.us/Mustang/shiftlightout.jpg) If you don't think an LED is bright enough you'd be wrong. Most LED have a brightness between 2 and 100 millicandellas. This LED is 18,000 millicandellas. It's bright enough so you get a spot on your eye for a few minutes if you look right at it for more than a second or two. Not only that, because of the way its mounted, it's barely out of your line of sight so your peripheral vision EASILY sees it when it comes on. This picture is not of the inside of my garage door, it's to show the placement of the shift light at the top of the picture. (www.nutt.us/Mustang/shiftlightview.jpg)

Shift light hidden

I saw a kid with his shift light mounted inside one of the center air vents. Totally invisible when it was not lit. Pretty cool, even if it was in a Civic.

I always refer to my car as a Mustang, rather than a 'Stang, for the same reason I refer to it as my "country", rather than my... well, you get the picture.
