Default Shifter Options

Im planning on buying a short-throw shifter anyone have any suggestions? Im looking between the Pro 5.0 or the MGW. Im leaning more on the MGW just because of all the great reviews it has... Anything to look out for?

My brother had a pro 5.0 shifter in his t56 cobra, he hated it. I didnt mind it, but i wasnt crazy about it, he just said it "was too harsh" or something like that. Ive heard great stuff about the MGW tho, never driven a car with one tho. Theyre both pretty pricey tho.

What have people heard about the B&M ripper shifter? Im lookin to buy one, just because its more affordable as long as people say its good. The last owner of my car told me there was a short throw already in the car, but come to find out, its stock.

a stock hurst base and a short stick is a MUCH better shifter then the over priced ripper.

i have a pro 5.0 in the WS6. Had the ebay knock off in the LT1. And had a Ripper and a Hurst in my RS. I gotta say i liked the ebay knock off the most. Plus was the cheapest.

Haha your probably right, I just checked the prices again for the ripper and it was alot more expensive than i remember for some reason (maybe its a different shifter im thinkin about) but I saw a used one for sale for about 80 bux on craigslist
