Short throw shifter

Wantin to get one here soon.
What brand do you have?
Also I have never used one before, does it make enough of a difference to spend that kind of money on one?

MGW, and yes, you get what you pay for. If you want crap, go cheap and buy a hurst.

I just went to mgw website. Did you get the adjustable stop kit for shifted when you ordered it? I think it's like an extra $15

Re: Short throw shifter

Get an MGW... I helped a friend install one on his 2012, and it was by far the best shifter I've ever used! now I want to switch out my hurst for one.

Hurst might be cheap but it's quality made, best look and feel of any shifter. I heard good things about pro 5.0 helping with the 3rd gear miss problem, but after talking to people who race there mustangs, the shifter isn't really the problem nor the solution

I just came back from a performance shop in tyler and the guy has me convinced not to get a short throw shifter now. Pretty said that you get one your gonna break sh*t. Gonna save up for a pro charger now.

I doubt you're shifting so fast that it broke, it was probably bound to break anyways

Let's just agree on this, they might not be bad but they aren't good either
