    Yes.
    bunch of them

    ^ He has a good point- With the extremely short stick, a bit of finesse and patience is required to get into reverse. Mine's a track car, so it's not an Issue. The SS has the OEM SLP shifter with a LSS, and no issues- Although, it's common knowledge the SLP shifter is just a glorified stocker.

    I've never had any problems engaging reverse.

    The factory Hurst is also just a glorified stocker, but the Billet Plus Shifter is a great uprade.

    Never used the PRO5.0 so I am not qualified to offer an opinion. I have owned two MGWs one for a Mustang and liked it so much I installed one on my WS6. Whatever you do, get the stock one out of there. My car came with the Hurst and the difference is night and day (see photo). The Mustang was even worse - I returned my Mustang to stock before I traded it in to a dealer - driving it to the showroom was eye-opening in how bad the stock shifters are and how solid the MGW is. http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/...s/b7e07e6f.jpg

    I think everyone who gets a aftermarket one says:

    "Why didn't I do this a long ago?"
