Noise intrusion thru shifter boot

1st thing I noticed upon driving home new/used 05 was amount of noise coming thru shifter. I can make it noticeably quieter by simply wrapping my hand around boot. I may end up upgrading shifter, is their any room under there for a little insulation? Thanks, Tom

Sounds like you might already have a non-stock shifter and the vibration is traveling through the shifter knob, making it rattle because it wasn't re-installed with enough RTV in it. There is plenty of room for insulation.

Current: MGW-p, H-pipe, SS OTRCAI, Lovell rear springs, Eliminator shocks and Pioneer AVH-P3300BT, JBA LTs+catless mids, Drilled/Slotted rotors, Kooks Afterburners, catch can & Tune Next: ??? Wish list: Intake & TB, modest cam, UDP, gears

I agree. I'd first look to see what you have there. The stock shifter was mushy but quiet. If it's an aftermarket there are different things you can do depending.
