They are certainly not the same. It shortens the throw and the overall height of the shifter and replaces the plastic shift linkage arm to a metal one.

That said, it being an "upgrade" is subjective IMHO. I wanted the shirt throws but also wanted a stiffer centering spring and a much taller shifter, so I ended up going with the CAE.

Do you have experience with the install process?
Yes and it was not too daunting for someone of my skill level. I don't work on cars much outside of the regular maintenance.

Definitely shop around, though. As said above, there are different sizes out there that may suit you better. I only bought the Ford one because it's Ford.

The boomba is a lot cheaper. I've had mine for ~50k miles so far and have been happy.

Why is the OP asking about whether he should buy a ford performance short shifter M-7210-FRS when, according to the picture he posted on another thread, it is already in his possession ? Also, according to his own post he has already sold his car.

Possible scammer?

No, just skirting the FS rules as best he can from what I can ascertain
