Thinking of changing the shifter in my '96 to a MGW or Pro 5O. I did search a few times and found more in the SVT forums than here, but I've noticed more than a few of you show both of these in the sig. To be honest with you, I don't think the stock shifter is that bad. To me, one of the biggest benefits are the positive stops to prevent bent shift forks, which makes me a little uneasy about beating on the car sometimes. Right now I'm leaning toward the Pro 5O because; 1) One of/or the first names in short throws 2) Seems very strong vs the MGW 3) Still built about an hour from my home (ok, so that's not a very valid reason) MGW positives; 1) Adjust ability 2) Low noise and vibration. Everyone seems to tout the 2-3 shift quality/precision/smoothness, but what about downshifting? Is the 5th to 3rd or 5th to 4th that much better than stock? I do find myself hunting for 3rd at times, as the stock shifter does seem vague in those senairos, or maybe it's a user error. Sorry this is so long winded and I may be splitting hairs, but I want to get the best purpose shifter the first time. Pros and cons?
