I've got B&M Rippers on both of my cars and they work great. I've had a Pro 5.0 and due to my height(6'-5" ) I had to lean forward to get 3rd and 5th so I **** canned it.

I also had a Pro 5.0. I didn't like the feel, and I'm also 6'5" and had to lean forward to hit 3rd. It was in my SVO which is thankfully gone.

I also had a pro ripper in my '84 GT. Loved it, but the bolts never stayed tight even with loctite. Sold the car with the shifter still in it. Next one, I am going to try the MGW.

Ended up getting the Hurst with chrome lever and T handle. Has a nice narrow gate but arm seems a tad tall. I tried putting my stock arm on and seems a tad heavy to shift... still experimenting.

taller handle for that shifter for you taller guys
Kind of defeats the purpose of having a short-throw shifter, IMHO.

Had a Pro Ripper in the '84 GT..loved it but the screws always came loose. I miss bangin' gears in that thing. I don't miss replacing the spiders every weekend in the POS 7.5" rear.
