From someone who's had a hurst I'd say get an MGW. The hurst feels aswome all day long but most times it tends to develop a rattling noise. I tried like the dickens to find it but gave up on it when I changed transmissions.

Did you try putting synthetic gear oil into the ball down in the shifter? I've heard a bunch of people say that fixed their rattle.

To be honest, I just turned the radio up an ignored it. The rattling didn't get fixed until I put my 6spd in.:yes

now instead of just yelling out mgw or hurst... can anyone tell me why they prefer one over another? i know the hurst cost 124781748x more and yes the adjustable length seems cool but how is the feeling for both? the hurst is really notchy.. when i felt it in my friends car's.. but it wasnt as stiff as the mgw if i remember correctly..

The billet comp/plus Hurst can be had for 80 bucks less than the MGW, Summit Racing sells it for 220. ;)

I've not operated the MGW. Heard good things about it.

I have the Hurst Comp Plus, and it works great for me.

And they're supposed to be notchy- although bear in mind that the shifter will break in eventually and feel even better.

each one has die hard fan's lol.. but i want to get one that will shift like butter and isnt too stiff... the main problem for me is i believe the hurst reuses couple of the OEM stuff. and mgw doesnt thus they cost more.. with the black shift ball the mgw cost like 370$ either way my main concern is would the hurst really rattle bad? i went to a stang meet and this dude said when he downshifts into 3rd with his hurst sounds like his tranny's gonna blow up lol..
