    I got one and installed it on my GT, it was super sweet. I currently have a Pro 5.0 in my Snake (Came installed when I bought the car - has T-56 6 Speed) and I hate it. Considering the 6 Speed MGW shifter, just need to hear from those that have acquired this particular unit because if it is as good as the 5 Speed shifter, I'm getting me one!

    Yep, forgot to mention those. I have Cobra Bob's gaskets and they have been very good to me. :D

    Do they still offer three different types/sizes of handles now? I know when they first came out you could get red or blue. Then they went with the orange only.

    the orange is supposed to combine the easy reach of red and shorter throw of blue
