I can't seem to find a P11 oem shift knob. Some have mentioned the weighted mitsubishi knob or 300zx knob.

Does anyone know if these will fit without modification? Are the links posted below the true weighted mitsubishi knob? Its described as a similar weight, but seems to have a different part number than the traditional mitsu knob that people use.

Also, does anyone know where I can find a better price?

machV use to sell those same knobs for $19.99 several years ago. The knob is fantastic and looks way better then the donkey dick 300z knob. Mitsu knobs have the same threads as Nissan so they will fit. Unless they switched the threads on the newer cars.

The MachV one is also known as the AMS hammer (or this is the "new" version) and is one of the best shift knobs I have ever come across. Weighted just perfectly and gives the interior a more sleeperish look. I had one in my car for several months and only moved to another knob for several reasons (none of which were because the AMS knob was bad)

The price however has jumped drastically in the last several years. Also, most places do not carry the original AMS hammer knob

been awhile since you looked into a 2g dsm knob I guess LOL. Yup prices shot up. I remember stopping down the mitsu dealer and picking these things up for under $25 including tax.

the original mitsu knob people were buying that was weights was MR263906.
Called my local Mitsu dealer. His computer shows 7 MR263906 in stock at $168.74/ea. (ouch). There was also an associated "newer" part number, MR657055. He showed 111 in stock at the same price. Wonder what the difference is. I can't find any pictures of the newer model.

I think I'm going to take my chances on this ebay knob. Hoping that it's the same.

Just a headsup Justin because I know how you like things too look stockish and clean. The newer knobs are much fatter on the bottom where it meets the boot. You will need to fatten up the boot a little to make it look good. It's simple to do. You can see what I'm talking about from this post.



the only complaint i have is that the knob feels enormous. but i love the weight, and the stitching is nice. i had to use a washer to make the the knob face forward. still this is an awesome product, and i'm really glad i didn't buy a $100+ TWM weighted knob.


boot pulled up

boot pulled down

the old knob. the base is the same diameter as the top of the boot. the glossy emblem on top of the Nismo knob is about the diameter of a quarter.

Q: are the stock knobs and boots different on '99 than '00-'02? i don't have the stock '99 knob, and in hiimj0ne's, the diameter of the knob base/boot top look bigger.

Looks great! I understand the use of the washer, but how did he fatten the boot? Hopefully it doesn't need to be taken off and re-stitched.

It looks like the knob was cheap ($25ish), went up in price ($100+), came back down ($40ish), and went back up once again. Other than ebay, I can't find it under $100.

no restitching. I think he just used a ziptie underneath. Maybe you can find a piece of rubber like a hose and slide it over the shifter shaft. I'm sure you can get creative. All else fails unload half of roll of electrical tape on it. Doesn't matter what you use really because the boot hides it all.

Which one did you end up going with?
I'm replacing mine soon
I haven't ordered it yet, but I'm going to grab one of these..

It's the "new" version of the AMS Hammer/Mitsu knob. The part number is different, but it appears to look similar and is the same weight (355g). Unfortunately, it's not $25 bucks anymore, but it's also not $141 they're charging for the remaining old knobs.
