A short shifter reduces the length of the throw, so theoretically you can shift quicker.
They are also supposed to be more precision made for better more accurate shifting.
They also should have adjustable shifter stops to keep you from bending the shift forks inside the transmission.
To me the shifter stops and accuracy improvement are more important than the short throw.


No, the cheap ones on eBay are not worth the money or time you will expend installing them.

I use a Pro 5.0 and it has served me well for many years.

They'd probably serve ok for looks, but you know the quality, the looks might not last either.
You just have to pick and choose on the cheap stuff and hope you are not just wasting your money.
