92-94 had the T handle as a standard option. But take a look at the differences between the SSEi (my stock T handle on the shifter) and the SSE. Mine has a relief cut in the top and bottom of the button (a pocket) and the button is slimmer, shorter, and easier to press. This SSE handle I got from the wrecker is an identical match to Jseabert'* 93 SSE shifter. Does anyone else have one like my STOCK shifter (mounted)?
A 1995 SSEi Cobra head shifter (first year for this shifter) mounted on my lever. Notice the vinyl trim boot doesn't reach the bottom of the shifter. This shifter head sits alot higher, so there is a longer 'throw' when shifting. I prefer my T Handle to this shifter, but I may give it time. This shifter was used from 95-99 (95-99 may use a taller boot? Confimation?):
Now the bigtime score.....the 2000+ T handle is a better shape and a more ergonomic angle. To make the swap work, you need the vinyl trim boot, as it comes up around the base of the shifter. I have the vinyl boot simply tucked in here, over the stock boot:
