Mick Webb's Lightning Shift

Just asking the question if anyone has got one of these & if they think it is worth the $375 that he is asking for it.
If you don't know what I'm talking about try this address

I wouldn't mind spending the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ but if it is s!@t I would rather spend it on something else.

Cheers Kristian Brock

At least one member of the club has done this mod. I considered it as well at one stage, but after all the blown up T5s I've been hearing about, I think I'm better off saving for a better transmission instead.

Just bought the B&M Ripper Shifter, cost me 95 cents more than the SVO shifter, from what i've been able to find the Ripper is a pretty decent unit, based on the American Ripper for the Mustang T5, which has received excellent reviews.

Personally I like the Pro 5.0 shifter. Far better with the gates and more sturdy construction over the Ripper shifter by B&M

Ohh yes and I have one in my Cobra and I can safely say that it is far better than the Ripper ever will be. I had the Ripper in my car prior to the 5.0
