    I've been running Pro 5.0 shifters for 10 years and father has had the same one in his Stang since 93...neither one of us has ever had problems out of them, nor needed to replace them for failure...I don't know what your tranny guy is talking about, he must see a lot of guys who adjusted the bolts wrong

    Or he just does cheap rebuilts of trannies and uses the shifter as an excuse to why they fail...

    Who knows though...

    I though of the same thing is an excuse. That was about a month ago. That asshole has'nt got it back to me yet. What would possibley take so long I didnt even have it in my car for a week the first time. You would think that he would try to hurry to keep me happy and keep a good name for himself.

    Same as everyone else here. I love my Pro 5.0, I've had it for about 5 years, no problems at all. Before it I had a hurst short throw, no problems with it, just got a great deal on the 5.0 so I snatched it up. I personally like the 5.0 better though.

    Yes it was mis adjusted..... You need to be forcing on to the stop bolt not the shifter fork in the trans!!!!

    I ALWAYS DO AT LEAST A 1/2 OF TURN AFTER TOUCHING THE SHIFTER.
    You must remember things are flexing and moving around when your banging gears at 6000rpm.

    Manufactures on shifters are all personal preference!!!! It all depends on what YOU consider a "GOOD" feel.
    I have 15 customers with Pro 5.0 and they swear by them so adjust properlly and decide for yourself with the new trans!!!!
    We have found different shifting caracteristics with different peoples fluid also!!! I like RedLines myself.......More feel in shifter but can power shift better.
    That's my 2 cents hope I help.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    If I'm not mistaken it said the tranny was rebuilt before the shifter install? And now after the install is being rebuilt again? Sounds like the guy did a crap job rebuilding it and placed the blame on the shifter.

    Heh. Pro 5.0s are junk? Don't think so...
    I've had them in two 5.0 GTs and my current Z28 with never a problem. The other shifter manufacturers even ripped off much of the original Pro 5.0 design, so that alone should tell you something...

    ditto that.
