I just put on my MGW and I love it. Finally got to take it out on the road after I got my console back together. 2nd to 3rd is a breeze. I have the silver racing handle on it as well.

I have the silver one. It's a little shorter. I've never tried the orange one. You might want to ask Mustang5L5 b/c he's got the orange one. The install is pretty simple. Good luck to ya!

IMO nothing compares to the MGW. I would go with the orange handle as well. You will never look back after buying the MGW, it blows every other brand out of the water.

It's best if you can try out the shifters you're considering, like in a friend's car.

There have been several good recommendations so far. I'd also suggest for you to take a look at the UPR Products shifter before you make your decision.

MGW all the way. I run an Orange handle and the throw is short. Want to try a silver just to see how it is.

I've run the Hurst and Steeda Tri-ax before...MGW feels much better

I'll throw in another vote for MGW, I've had the orange handle installed since the shifter for a year now and I do drive the car quite a bit, it feels awesome.
