    Many, many people like the 5.0

    I like my B&M ripper shifter. Really anything that shorten the damn light pole of a stock shifter is going to greatly kimprove your shifting. Im sure many will say the 5.0. It is a good shifter.

    I really like the B&M as well. The Pro 5 is equally as nice. Really wont go wrong with either.

    I had the 5.0 on my last Z and it was notchy but i never missed a gear with it and since you can remove the stick on it and go with a shorter one makes it better. I dont think you can remove the stick on the B&M but then again i dont know how short it is compared to the other aftermarket short shifters.

    MGW does make a shifter for F-bodies, I believe you have to call them cause it's not listed in there catolog because it's new.
