    I went with MGW as well the best shifter out there IMO. A bit pricey but looks great and works even better.

    I have B&M on mine with no complaints. Shortened the throw and made the shifter feel so much more solid (stock is spongy). It's hard to compare as I haven't had any other to try tho.

    just make sure your shift stops are set right whatever you buy they will save your t56

    I havent tried the MGW but ive heard its a great shifter no doubt. I use to have a 5.0 in my last camaro and never ever missed a shift after installing it. For some reason even with a short stick the throws seemed longer then my hurst shifter with a short stick but regardless its a good trade off because it has bump stops and very precise. In the future when im done modding i will more then likely look into a Pro 5.0 or MGW.

    I had a Pro 5.0 and hated it... The centering springs were weak as hell... it was in my car for one night and then i took it out the next morning and went back to stock. My next shifter will probably be the MGW but im waiting for the hype to be over.
