Re: SVO: Shifters

You can buy the Hurst Compition Plus shifter. It's really the same shifter
but it won't let you use the SVO knob or the FMS knob the looks like the
SVO knob. Therefore what I did when my stock shifter fell apart was I
bought the Hurst Compition Plus shifter and also bought a stock 94 Corba
shift knob. The knob looks like the stock plastic unit on the 5.0's but is
leather wrapped and looks very nice and it's only $20 bux.
