    ws6 store has a 25 dollar stick, no need for the base, try just the short stick first, then if you feel the need to upgrade bases, the pro 5.0 is a popular choice

    There are usually 2 parts to a short shifter.
    Yea you can just replace the stick part so ur handle will be lower and makes you shift just a fraction faster. You would feel a better gain from changing out the base because it makes it where the stick itself doesnt havent to move far.
    As for the cheap e-bay ones you will get what you pay for.
    Personally I have a hurst competition plus shifter with an UMI short stick and love it. Very smooth, quick shifting, just overall great to use.
    Hurst, B&M, and the Pro 5.0 are the way to go ebay ones are not worth it.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I'm currently looking at a B&M, and a pro 5.0. Any preference to one over the other?

    Another question....I heard that the factory shifters can cause damage from to the syncros from over shifting? Is this true? I was told to put an aftermarket shifter in my car because of this. I did not want to buy one, but if I have to I will.

    The T56 transmission has internal shift rail stops, but getting an aftermarket shifter with stop bolts isn't a bad idea anyway. The stop bolts prevent you from putting uneccesary stress on the trans internals, since the shifter bottoms out on the stop bolt after a hard shift instead of relying on the trans internals to stop the shifter from moving further than its supposed to.
