how's the throw? I drove a 2014 5.0 with a short throw shifters and I was so blown away by how little you space you had to shift gears, and that's what I'm looking for basically, very minimal shifts.

My Roush short throw is a little bit tighter, but I like the Hurst better. I guess there's pros and cons to both.

It takes more grunt to shift; it could be how I installed it. But I like the position of the Roush better. It's taller and it's straight. Hurst has a little curve and the cue ball seems oversized in my opinion. But when I get a 6 speed for my Roush, it's get a Hurst. Like I said pros and cons to both.
I'll try and get comparison photos sometime tomorrow for you.
In terms of throw I believe it's accurate. My Roush has a 50% reduction while the Hurst has 40%. It's slight but noticeable difference. Not a big difference, but you can tell, just a little bit.

Every day is a joyride.

I'm petty picky about shifters honestly. I believe the one in the 2014 5.0 I drove was a Hurst because It had a curve like that. I wish you could change the cue ball

In theory you should be able to change it to anything with the same thread pattern..

MGW is the way to go with short throw shifters, in my opinion at least

I'd steer clear. KBB puts it at about 7K for a clean titled car. You have no idea how good or bad the repair work was done. Judging from the paint and the misalignment of the rear panel and exhaust, there's probably more going wrong under there. If you can talk the price down under 4K and have it inspected by a trusted shop, then you could have a good project to start with.

BTW - did you call your insurance company about rebuilt titles? Some won't touch them.

Mgw shifters make it to where you can adjust it to the point where I barely has a shorter throw all the way up to like 50% shorter.

The GT I would walk and not look back. There are better cars that don't need all the work. The V6 I'm wondering if there was a front end wreck that required new bumper, grill and hood. Take your time, the right car will come along.

yeah, I had to walk from both, unfortunately for the V6. it had a clean title and was replaced for looks from the previous owner. it was babied a lot throughout the years. I called my insurance company to get price quotes for both cars and my bike, and just for the 2 cars, (2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS and the 2006 Mustang) and it was $233 for the Eclipse just liability, and $236 for the mustang full coverage through State Farm. $460 a month is way to much. it's not helping that I'm an 18 year old male who has an accident on my record. it wouldn't be under my parents name, I would be by myself. and even with Erie insurance which my dad has, it would've been $320 a month.
