    Bought a short throw on ebay

    Hey just curious about the pro5.0 short throw shifter. I came across a brand new one on ebay and had to buy it for the price. It was $100 shipped to my door and brand new so it seemed to good to pass up. Anyone use this shifter? and what are your thoughts on it? Any help appreciated and what's the difficulty of install? I used to have a mustang and that short throw was pretty easy to install. Thanks in advance.

    i have a pro 5.0 in my 98 z and love it. shifts are much better and shorter. install wasn't hard at all. i made it easy on myself by removing the center console too..as it was lots easier to work with the stock shifter.

    Yea, he said he couldn't list it as brand new because it was going to be installed but when he came out the next day to install it someone had stolen the car. Can't imagine anything worse.
