I have a GMM ripshift race and like it. Lots of complaints about the Hurst. There will be various opinions about others.

Ripp
MGWP

I got the JHP works well. But if I had to choose I would do the MGW-P. Hinson is also another good name to throw out they seem to get great reviews.

If the Lou's short stick is still available it works great with the factory shift linkage. Removing the rubber isolated handle on the original shifter makes a big difference.

I use a LSS and find it is just fine for what I need. Never drove a car with the other shifters recommended over the years. Factory throw too long, LSS corrected that.
