I went with an MGW shifter on the T56. Best mod I ever made. I never realized how much play there was with the stock shifter. With the stock shifter, I have already went from 3rd to 2nd gear just before the traps and nearly popped the rear end into small flying parts. The sudden chirp from the tires made me realized the error and immediately pulled the shifter into neutral and rolled through the traps at 86 mph but having a 1/4 ET of 12.9. At least I did not damage anything from that.

I am sure there are many aftermarket shifters for your car that would improve shifting performance.
