I suspect the usable cable strand sticking out of the housings are almost the same, but one housing is a little bit different length to best get from the dash to the bellhousing on either a 82-95 or a 96-2004. I like the way my current cable fits, so I think I would like to get one with the same dimensions if possible.
The best Original Ford, Teflon lined, (with no adjuster) cable, was part # E4ZZ-7K553-A if you can find one..
You do need a firewall adjuster, or the original Ford self adjusting quadrant set up, to use it.

Some of the Mustang guys swear the Maximum Motorsport cable is the next best thing to the original OEM one, and it is made by the same manufacture.
