Short throw shifters?

As I'm sure many with M6 GTOs have noticed the shifter is alittle sloppy and has a long throw. I have been looking for a good short throw shifter and have found three.

B&M: http://www2.bmracing.com/store/komme...spx?item=45043

Harrop: http://www.lingenfelter.com/Merchant...Category_Code=

Hurst: http://www.northernautoparts.com/Pro...tModelId=13304

Does anyone have experience with any of these shifters? If so what pros and cons are there?

Do not forget the GMM Ripshifter from our friends down under. JHP has them and they have been ranked the best so far.

I was reading about them after posting this thread. They sound like a pain in the backside to install, but I may have to do it.

Mine will be mostly driven on the street, probably too aggressively, but I can't help that.

Does the Harrop bolt right on with little to no difficulty and do I reuse the slock handle? A Hurst T Handle would be nice. I had one in my 71 442 and loved it.

Lou's short stick with a Hurst pistol grip handle works great for me 55 for the stick 70 for the handle.

I like the looks of that, but I am assuming it is just a shorter shaft then added the length back with the shifter handle on the stock shifter.

Harrop just reduces throw and reuses stock handle but raises shifter ½” that’s why I cut shifter 1”, Not tight like B&M or GMM. I had B&M for 1 day and returned, You could use any handle that fits stock.

Why return the B&M?
