    Definitely go Pro 5.0! I installed a Pro 5.0 in my 01 WS6 3 years ago and its my favorite mod. I would say 95% of people prefer Pro 5.0 over any other aftermarket shifter.

    Ok, I went into the basement and found the "Lou's Short Stick." I've got the original box it came in and everything it came with. It comes with 2 lock washers, the shifter handle, and instructions. Here's Lou's website: http://lscamaross.8m.com/lous2.html. I have this one: 52502A-BLK - $47.00 - Fits Pro 5.0 Shifter (Black finish). It is the angled one. The instructions (they are on his website as well) says, "Fits M6 Stock, factory Hurst, SLP, aftermarket Hurst and Pro 5.0 shifters." I would have posted pics yesterday, but my girlfriend took the digital camera to her apartment and didn't tell me. I will post pics as soon as I get a hold of the camera which will be later tonight. Once you see the pics and if you would like to buy it I would imagine shipping costs the same for me as it does for LS Concepts which would be:
    Standard: $5.75 - Priority Mail (approximately 3 days).
    Optional: $17.00 - Express Mail (overnight to most locations).
    So it depends on how fast you want it (I'd recommend going w/ 3 day shipping because it's more cost effective, but if your in a rush that's cool too). They want $47 for it brand new, half of that is $23.50. So for $23.50 + (Your choice of shipping method) it's yours! I'm sorry about the delay, I'll get pics up as soon as I get the camera later tonight. Then just look at the pics and make sure it's what you want and we can work everything out from there.

    Just took 3 quick pics. Sorry, I didn't scale them down or anything and they are very large (7.1 Megapixel camera). There's the directions, 2 lock washers, and the shifter handle. Let me know if this is the one you want.

    Im kinda diggin up a older post but I just got a 01 SS camaro and cant decide on a shiter. I heard some people think the 5.0 is too notchy or that it makes noise?? Im pretty picky when it comes to my shifter . I want somethin that is going to slide into gear easy with short throws.

    There is a package with the LS stick at afterthoughtsauto.com. I don't know if they are the best price. http://www.afterthoughtsauto.com/pro50towshif.html

    That's the one that comes with it. It doesn't come with a knob though. That's how I bought mine. At times it seems to short for me, but other times it's perfect. I heard that people that auto cross like a taller stick and drag racers like a shorter one.

    Fuck, I remember the Pro 5.0 was my first mod. And not only was my stock shifter shitty, but it was in bad shape. Every time I shifted with any speed going into 3rd, my shifter would slide out of its hole and sit in neutral..

    In case you dont know what I mean by "hole," picture your shifter. First gear to you is upper left, but really its lower right. Its opposite end, under the weather protecter is inside a "cup" and it appears to be made of plastic. Well, its edges were worn away, so every time I shifted fast in an upward motion (1st, 3rd, 5th...R), the opposite end of the shifter would slip out of its cup and basically register no gear since the cup moved back to center (N). Needless to say, I replaced my cup with a new one, but I did it at the same time as the PR0 5.0.

    About that, comparing the stock shifter's opposite end to the Pro's will show a significant difference in length. Though the top part, what we use to shift is shorter, the bottom part is longer. Thereby securing the shifter tightly and safely in the cup.

    Well, I could say the exact same thing about the B&M Ripper on my 2000 SS with the M6. Next best thing to an automatic, as far as going from one gear to the next with ease, IMHO. Only the Ripper does not self-center, so you really want to shift sequentially with it....

    My pro 5.0 totally changed the feel of the car, not even kidding. If you wanna make it even better, make sure you do the drill mod next time you change the slave cylinder. Now its impossible to miss 3rd! ( the drill mod writeup can be found here http://www.installuniversity.com/ins...sity/index.htm )

    Thanks its def a sweet shifter the install was easy also I just took extra time and cleaned my console while it was out. Some people complain about noise and mine is quiet at least so far. I didnt cut too much of the boot and stretched it over the shifter.
