LSR or MTI short throw

I'm looking into getting a short throw shifter and I've narrowed it down to the LSR and MTI six shooter. Does anyone have any opinions on which one woud be better, anybody have either of these? Any input and opinions would be great. thx

The MTI shifter is sweet. That and the Hurst are my two favorite.

I've had my MTI shifter in my car for well over 1 year, 1 of the best mods I bought so far.

Do you have any pics of it by chance? I was wondering how tall it was.

Thanks for the input, I appreciate it guys.

I believe the MTI shifter is stock height. In fact I use the stock leather knob so it looks OEM. However MTI offers many different knob options so you can tailor the shifter to your personal preference. Shift throw is about 28% shorter that stock and all the "rubber" feeling the OEM shifter has is gone. I've had my MTI shifter for over a year and it feels as tight and smooth as it did the day I installed it. I have also never experienced any noise from it which several aftermarket shifters are known for.

Did you notice any wobble, Like the Hurst had? How hard was install on it? I assume install was pretty straight forward but I read you had to lower the transmission.

No wobble but didn't have any wobble with the stock shifter either. I modified the instructions that MTI sent which in my mind made the install easier. In a nutshell I didn't remove the entire OEM shift assembly and build the MTI unit on a bench and then try and install the entire unit as MTI suggests. Instead I put it all together from underneath the car and I did not drop the exhaust system. It requires patience and careful assembly which any of the shifters require. All of the shifters I know of require you to remove the transmission cross member so the transmission moves away from the body a bit.

Yea I knew they said it was caused due to install error. I'm just real Scared to risk getting the Hurst and end up with that stinking wobble. Ireally like the way the Hurst looks and I know it has the shortest Throw 44% I believe. I have also read people saying it takes alot of effort to shift with the Hurst. My buddy has a Hurst in his 2008 Mustang I would assume there set up the same and I love his. Im just worried.

You can also use what Riley Technology is using in the GrandAm cars and what GM choose for the Camaro SSX.

LSR is the sister company/division of steeda. They make quality parts, and have a great price. The MTI replaces the whole assembly, and has a long running making quality shifters. I haven't had experience with either shifter setup, but I wish you luck in making your right decision. I think it comes down to personal preference as neither is a bad choice.

I had no idea LSR was a sister company to steeda thats good info. I'm really leaning toward the LSR right now. Thx

I doubt you drive that hard in traffic....what I meant was that it's hard to compare videos when your's is just hard shifting. It doesn't really show the throw difference or such things as the possible "wobble" mentioned with the Hurst.

Yea like a Video where you go throught the Gears just sitting still to show the throw and side to side action while its in gear to see how much play it has.

Yea I looked into MGW but I really dont want to have to change out the entire assembly. It seems like it would be a huge PITA I'm sure its worth it but I also wanna stay around the 250 under mark. But I might end up with it IDK I'm really diggin the LSR right now lol

IC I have 2 months to figure it out but I really dont wanna spend that much on a shifter when I can get one for under 250 dollars thats just as good. Thats just my opinion I really need to drive a few cars with differant shifters but its just not possible.
