Re: SVO: Shifters
Not all of us pound the shit out of our cars and might want to have the
original shifter when restoring the car.

My shifter was already trashed when I purchased the car in July. This car
was most certainly owned by a moron college student in Phoenix (Pima
Community College sticker was the hint) and was abused mechanically, but
the interior is in really good condition.

Jeff Dalbec just had this conversation about the Comp Plus shifter. I had
a Hurst Comp Plus shifter on my 5.0 for your reason mentioned, but those
were in my punk College days. That is also I had the stock shifter sitting
at my parents house. Junk collector?

I agree with you that the Hurst Comp Plus shifter ($150) is the way to go
if you are going to shift you SVO hard, otherwise the Dave special $20
stock 5.0 shifter is a great solution. Please do not take offense to this
post, I am merely offering MY opinion.
PS I will be running 13s this summer in Colorado without abusing the SVO
