Depends on who you talk to and what your intended use is. I love the Hurst, but it is a competition shifter and not necessarily for everyone.

If I had a pic I would put it in. I have the MTI. I love it. have nothing to say about hurst or any others, as I have only had the MTI, well and the stock shifter. I love everything about my MTI shifter. perfect to me. easy and aggressive when I want it to be.

I'm looking at a Hurst shift kit myself. But I haven't gotten to test it with other models so I don't know what to compare to.

I went with the MGW based on the feedback on this forum. I can say it works awesome and it a big improvement over the OEM. Also, their customer service is outstanding. George was very helpful. Plus, the retro assembly and racing knob looks killer.

MGW is awesome!. It is stiff the first week or two but once broke in it is unbelievable and so nice to use. No missed gears and blows away the sloppy stock shifter. #1 Mod any M6 Camaro owner should do IMO. The hurst is too long a stick and very ugly in my opinion...the cue ball is an absolute eyesore :(

I just received my Barton shifter today and I'll put it in tomorrow. Just looking at it, it looks like a very nice quality piece. Can't wait to try it out.

There really aren't any bad ones's its about feel. They all feel different. My advice buy nothing atm go to some car meets and ask the people if you can try there shifter out. Some of our members are on there third shifter before they found one they liked. Its a popular mod people will most times be more then happy to let you try it.
