    I have a 5.0 and it is a bit noisy but "rattle" no, and it does not stick. What exaxtly do you mean by sticks? :shrug: Sticks, like stuck in gear? Mine is pretty smooth after a little warm up. :beer:

    MGW is the way to go. Quieter, smoother and more positive feel.

    With the addition of a Firewall Quadrant it does. Noisy as hell though.

    rpmoutlet sells seat rail extenders, so you can put your seat back a couple more inches.

    I have a upr short throw and love it. If you think your shifter is stiff try this: push ur clutch in all the way and hold it for a sec then slide your foot right off the side and like the clutch pedal kick back and to that like 2 or 3 times and it will "reset" the clutch. I was having trouble putting my car into gears sometimes. It was getting really notchy and my friend told me about this and it help tremendously.

    Forgive me but Im not a cobra owner but was thinking of buying a shifter for a friend as a B-day present. MGW seems to be a clear favorite but what about the B&M Ripper shifter? or is that refered to in this thread by pro 5.0?? Good, bad, ugly?

    WTF i was going to get the Pro 5.0 because I have problems missing 3rd.... and from what i heard the 5.0 is spring loaded so you wont miss shift...now i read that people say its hard to get into gears and gets stuck.... MGW users, how is it hitting third gear????
