After reading about the Pro 5.0 shifter and it's positive results I had to have one. It is made from a billet aluminum base and there are two handles available for them. A must if drag racing your car to eliminate overshifting that may cause damage to your shifter forks in your transmission. I have it in my car and love it. Installation was about an hour with basic hand tools.

I love the short throw. The clank it can makes between gears just sounds wonderful. With this shifter, you know you have a manual transmission ready for action. I have not missed a shift yet. With the stock shifter I was grinding gears. This is saving my transmission in the long run. It is a lot of fun to play with just idle at a light as well.

I've owned the steeda tri-ax in my Gt and this shifter is much better and quieter then the steeda. This shifter if installed correctly is as quiet as stock. I teamed mine up with the Steeda Tri-Ax handle and it is a much better feel then the Pro5.0 handle.

ProsQuiet, Short Throw

WHILE THE PRODUCT SEEMS VERY STURDY , THE OCCASIONAL BALKINESS TAKES AWAY FROM THE OVERALL QUALITY

ConsSometimes it seems harder to shift than others. Takes a while to get accustomed to.
