    B&M ripper shipper, nice feel to it, i like it and would recommend it. I'm sure that any shifter you decide to go with, will give you great results over the stock piece.

    I had a B&M on my T-5, and now I have a B&M on my Tremec 3550. If it wasn't good, I wouldn't have bought another one. I put a Pro 5.0 in an 04 Mustang... and man that thing feels really good. Any of the shifters out there are good... I'd go with any of the three majors... Pro 5.0 , Steeda, or B&M

    any popular aftermarket shifter will perform better than stock.

    just make sure it has stops, you should be fine.
    i have a steeda.

    I have a Hurst shifter that came with aused T5-Z i boght off a buddy. the shifter came in his car when he bought it in 1997... and i'm guessing it was a few years old then. I can bang gear pretty good with it.

    Otherwise? A well worn stock shifter with the rubber taken out of the handle, and the handle shortened just a tad, with a round knob, is what I normally do.. [have aforementioned handle on the Hurst shifter].

    B&M here. Wish it was a Ripper, but its is still way better than original. The solid aluminum knob I machined for it made it even more direct and "clicky". :nice:

    Pro 50 hands down over the flimsy shifter! I got a friend whos a powerlifter, he that slammed his stock shifter, and then his triax! His stock T5 is still good with the pro50. Luck? perhaps.
