Even if it is the same, I can't imagine it's any better. I would still look into upgrading to an aftermarket shifter ie Steeda tri-ax, Barton, or MGW. Or just an aftermarket shift bracket like the Steeda or the Barton 2-post

Lol. I think you are!
And to answer your second question, when you purchase the MGW you can choose between two different shift arms, the standard arm that comes with it works with all MGW shift knobs. The optional shift arm retains the stock thread pitch to be able to use your factory shift knob or aftermarket knobs that use the same threads.

As soon as I get my ducks in a row and acquire a replacement shifter/bracket, the stock shifter and its phoney conduit clamp-like bracket will land in my trash cart for disposal. The whole setup is junk.

Count me in too. I like the feel of the stock knob.

The stock one isn't 'terrible' but it does get freakin annoying missing that 2nd-3rd shift at WOT.

Did not know that the MGW shifter was threaded differently, I'll have to make sure to order the one that matches the stock pattern (for the other aftermartket shifters). Good heads up.

Stock shifter is very comfortable, and smooth... But in spirited driving I missed gears 50% of the time, after I changed my shifter and bracket that doesn't happen at all anymore

I agree. When I said I like the feel of the shifter, I only meant the knob. But was missing 2nd to 3rd more than 50% during hard acceleration. I only replaced the bushing for less than $20 and it works! Eventually, I would like to get a short shift.
