For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure the regular one is OE on the Shelby GT. Hurst makes a great shifter, and they look great. And they've been around forever. I know shifters are really hard to buy because its really a tactile sort of thing. And obviously you can't feel it over the computer lol. If you plan on going to the track, or just like to bang gears, the pro 5.0 is wicked smooth and it's IMPOSSIBLE to miss 3rd. It's a little stiff getting in to 5th and R for a couple weeks but it loosens up. You can use any knob, I have a pistol grip (first love was Mopar). It also has adjustable stops as a safeguard against over engaging yours trans. The customer service is also world class. Pro 5.0 does not get the attention they deserve with the S197s. Top notch product
