Don't know how the shifter in your 5 speed stacks up against the flaws of the 6 speed in mine. You could possibly look at a Steeda Triax as another way. I know a lot of people here run them. Maybe they will chime in. To compare my stock shifter to the MGW is day light to dark. Ford's stock 6 speed mount really leaves a whole lot to be desired from. The MGW is solid and there is no mistake when changing gears were you are coming from and were you are heasded to gear wise.
I have been debating the Hurst Billet Plus 2 Shifter myself. Always been a fan of their shifters. I am really getting tired of the poor shifter on my 6 speed, it's picky can be tricky to get it into gear sometimes at speed. God forbid the times you think your in first and its in reverse somehow....
Went from Stock Shifter, to the Hurst Competion/Plus, to the Hurst Billet/Plus and then finally last year to the Barton.. Absolutely Nooooooooooo comparision !!! Real quality piece with great 2-3 shift !!
I went with the Black Shift **** and Extension. It came with the ball, the extension, jam nuts and a shift boot spacer. It took 5 minutes to install and raises the shift height 1 1/2 inches. It looks awesome and very professional. It shifts easier and more precisely because of the addtional throw. It was expensive at $99 but definitly worth it.
