What are the pros and cons of both. They are rated about equal on Stangnet. I want some real world advice from fellow Bullittheads. I have a Hurst Shifter in my 92 GT. Always felt like it was`nt the best on the market, but have been happy with it. Thanks WixBullitt

Well, for no really good reason, I got rid of the stock shifter (which really worked just fine and was smooth and quiet) and got the tri-ax. It makes it feel very racy as it has a very machine-mechanical hard-edged feel to it- but here's what I don't like and I'm willing to bet the pro 5.0 is the same way-it transmits all kinds of tranny noise to the cabin and yeah when the radio is on it masks it, but its not a satifying noise, you know like for instance, gear drive in small block V-8. But if you want quick precise shifts, it kicks butt...If you look at the 2 close up the tri-ax looks more buff.

I have used both in the Bullitt. A Pro 5.0 with the MGW shifter arm is as good as gets. However, you will not be disappointed with the Tri-Ax either. That MGW shifter arm eliminates all noise...period. On the Pro-5.O TR 3650 be sure to mount the arm on the right side of the shifter unlike prior models for the T5 and T45.

For me one of the selling points was the aluminum shifter that the Bullitt comes with stock. I love the way this car drives and will keep it a close to stock as possible. Any of you all have pictures of the shifters you installed? :evil:

Your car didn't come with an aluminum shifter unless the dealer put it in. It comes with the same stamped steel POS that comes in the GTs. Yes, I know they are the same because I have one out of a regular GT and the one out of my Bullitt in the same box in my garage.

To address the original question. You really can't go wrong with either shifter. I have a Pro-5.0 in my LX and it works perfectly, as does the Steeda in my Bullitt. Both are definitely mechanical feeling. What you get in trade for this feeling is the positive stops that a stock shifter doesn't have. Anything you can do to reduce the chance of a bent shift fork is worth it. If you want a short throw shifter and don't care about the positive stops, check out the Saleen units built by Hurst. Really short throws and very smooth, but no stops. It's pretty inexpensive too.
