Building this thing & going through all the parts.
Found a Pro Ripper with stock handle in the bunch.

I remember the old school B&M from days past & they were good. I have read good and bad about this one. Have also read the MGW is a much better piece.

Just dont know if I should go through the hassle of finding a new handle, rebuild(needs new springs, clean, etc) or just have him get the MGW for $180. Already need a new flywheel, clutch cable, disk & PP.

SO...... if YOU had a Ripper laying around and lots of time on your hands. Would you clean it up & use it or........?

On my old T5, I had used a Hurst Short Throw, a Steeda Tri-ax, one of those cheap chinese deals, and a B&M Ripper. The Ripper was BY FAR the best shifter I had ever used on my T5. When I swapped to the TR3550 I used a Pro5.0 Power tower, and it was complete garbage. Took it off and went to a MGW, which stayed until I swapped to auto.

If I still had a T5, I would certainly still be using a B&M.

Thank You Adder.

Will bolt it on and see what happens when we get to that point.

He is on a $8000 budget.

I always recommend the MGW because I've found it to be the most comfortable
