    I will probably get flamed but I have the stock shifter with Mgw handle and I love it. Other than the sloppy bushing and ridiculous handle length I think the stocker is fine.

    No flames, but if you have not tried an aftermarket shifter, I submit that you are missing out. There is truly no comparison :D

    Venum, you like the T-handles? That's about the only "knob" I've never tried with a manual. Is this your first?

    I have the MGW with a Red handle, and its SOO nice!!

    I think the general concensus is that ANY of the aftermarket shifters are light-years better than the stock unit. Whichever one is better boils down to personal preference :)

    You can't go wrong replacing the stock POS :)

    love my tri-ax. I highly recomend removing the stick of margarine the factory installed in our cars. Anything is better than that piece of carp.

    Just installed the MGW this morning with Cobrabob's gasket. Replaced my Kirban with MGW adjustable handle. WOW, what a difference!! I can't believe how short the throws are and how quiet it is in the vert now!! MGW and Cobrabob rule!!

    MGW with Blue handle. Feels similar to my Pro-50 on the 01 Cobra. I did not like the t-56 Pro 50 handle. I LOVE the MGW Handle is a matter of preference.
