They are identical except the anodizing. I have the ford racing, but only because I wanted the ball and adapter as well. If you prefer a different ball go with the Barton and 2 post bracket. FYI there are a ton of threads about this. You won't regret either shifter. Some will start in and say to get the MGW race spec. Can't speak to them but the do look awesome, throw isn't as short as the Barton or FRPP.
