What shifter do you reccommend for the 03? MIne is having a hard time going into 1st (of all things) and since it is a sloppy factory one anyway.... so which one??

not an 03 owner but on the T-56, you can't go wrong with the Pro-5.0 copled with the MGW shifter handle.

You sound like you need a clutch quadrant also.

I've got the PRO- 5.0 Lisa, and I love it. Best shifter IMO. :)

Another vote for the Pro 5.0... although for the love of God don't use the handle that comes with the shifter!! I put it on for like five minutes and then went over to the SVO's tranny and rogued the Tri-ax handle off it.

Firme is dead on using George's handle with this shifter. I drove a friend's Cobra with the exact same set-up and it's about as good as you can get :thumbsup:

I have the steeda shifter with the pro 5.0 handle. I also lock-tited all the fasteners and mating surfaces to make sure it all stays in place. It would be nice if 5.0 magazine did a comparison of all the shifters out there to get a subjective/objective analysis. I do get more tranny noise now but I read somewhere that if you put a sheet of stiff urethane between the shifter and transmission you can diminish the noise .

Definitely have the clutch quadrant looked at. A little while after I installed my Centerforce Dual-Friction, I had the same symptoms you mentioned (hard shifts all gears). Thought I had somehow botched the clutch install. Turns out the stock plastic quadrant was the culprit and the clutch cable wasn't self-adjusting. Replaced it with an aluminum Steeda kit (about $110). Also, my vote on the shifter is the Steeda Tri-ax...very smooth action.
