I swapped out my factory hurst in my 02 for a Pro 5.0, and honestly, I liked the Hurst better. Get a $20 short stick from ws6 store, youll be surprised by how good that feels for such little money.

The factory Hurst with a WS6 store shortstick wasn't too bad but the throw wasn't much shorter. I liked my B&M Ripper as it felt solid and the shift were great. I was thinking about switching up to an MGW as I've only heard positive reviews.

I'm always surprised, no one ever recommends the SLP. Love mine, has a TNA short stick on it, they used to sell it as a combo deal nice and cheap.
