New owner of a Shelby GT500- Barton Shifter question

Learning all I can about these cars since I decided to pick up a 2009 GT500. It's black with dark gray Cobra stripes and black interior. It has a Barton shifter and is lowered with coil overs up front. I see that on a few forums there seems to be a lot of love for the MGW shifter but was wondering if anyone has anything good or bad to say about the Barton. Is it almost as good, a significant upgrade over the stock unit, or something I should seriously consider dumping for the MGW?

Get the MGW Gen2. Its that much better than all the other ones. Don't overthink and don't settle for a band aid when the MGW is a total fix.
