I got the ford racing, and the throws are about 50% shorter, and A LOT more secure. I used to grind the gears every once and a while cause I thought the car was in gear, but was actually in tranny limbo. No more gear grinding since i put the new shifter.
The metal reverse lockout is COLD in winter though!
