Default making your own shift light?

I don't if this can be done but all the other shift lights they have are kinda big and long. I really like the idea of the in dash shift light that the sti's come with. I was wondering if it's possible to make our own shift light with an led. Is this possible? Thanks

If all you want is to light up an LED, you can do it pretty simply. You need an LM2917 chip.

It's a frequency-to-voltage converter that also includes a comparator that can drive the LED directly.

You can read through the datasheet and application notes here:
