Performance Shift Knob with Shift boot without buying SSK?

Do you guys know if you can buy the Performance Shift Knob with the matching alcantra shift boot without having to buy the complete $500 short shift kit?

Reason being is that I want the shift knob and boot to connect perfectly at the base of the shift knob. I do not want to rig the old boot with the performance knob.

thoughts?

You need to purchase the entire short shift kit. The shift boot is designed to only handle the shorter throws. You will "pop" the boot off each time you shift if you don't install the complete kit. Speaking from experience.
