So I used:

1) Robo-grip pliers and rubber protection on plier teeth (both from Sears)
2) Strap wrench (from Sears)

That's it!

Since the Robo-grip pliers had the red rubber protection, I used my left hand and gripped it straight on the shaft after lowering the boot. No marring on the shaft. Then I used my right hand on the strap wrench straight on the stock knob. Voila! It gave IMMEDIATELY. No marring on the knob whatsoever. It was a matter of having the right tools and the right leverage. That stock knob was on there tight though, after loosening it with the strap wrench, I figured I could just loosen it the rest of the way with my hands... but I was wrong. I pretty much had to use the strap wrench all the way till the knob was almost off.



This was my setup. You can see the robo pliers on the left, and the strap wrench on the knob. What a wonderful combo.






Stock knob is off!!! No damage to it (front and back)!!! Look at ALL that Loctite on the shaft threads!!!






And here she is all installed!!! I love it!!!




I was surprised the whole affair took me 15 minutes total... just needed the right tools... amazing. I love the new Nismo knob on there. I haven't driven her yet, but am looking forward to it!!! It looks and feels good though however... exactly the look I am looking for.

Thank you again to EVERYone who chimed in and the existing DYI's posted in this forum. You guys are a tremendous help.

What do you think about using 2 strap wrenches for bottom and top? Instead using a Robo-grip pliers.

I was a lucky one and didn't have much of a struggle or sacrifice the stock knob. Did the patented setup here, except I used a bicycle tire to line the shaft. Didn't need the duct tape but surely needed to use the pipe wrench for at least like 5 full turns.

Also didn't have much leverage. I think I was using 7-9 inch handles for both tools. That lucky, I guess.

too bad most places are sold out of it. Maybe you should note that before you create a smart@$$ remark.

I do question the validity of your second link. The only reason why is because Courtesy Nissan had it listed on several links as "in stock" and they cancelled my order. I had to call them and they said they are completely sold out and have been for years.

But very jealous of those who do have the titanium shift knob.
