I have a nicely setup Boss with Calimer trans, MGW Race Spec, and Hyper Single. That MGW is very direct and VERY connected. You feel a alot through the OEM hard ball shift knob. For my street driven Boss, im not sure that i like that. It was fine in stock form without the badass MGW shifter, and probably still "fine" now. Today on the way to work, i tried an standard OEM GT leather shift knob. The shifts are smoother and softer, you feel less of teeth engagement, the shifter hitting the bottom of the gate is more pleasant, its nicer to handle and not as cold in the winter. It feels more like a perfectly shifting OEM setup instead of an obvious aftermarket shifter. So far i like the performance, really like. You ever paint a wall or put a piece of furniture in a room and it made the room feel surprisingly different? Thats how this shift knob has impacted the driving performance of my Boss. The interior and overall driving feels more friendly and inviting and in general more pleasant to drive. Its my obvious preference. The look sucks though and the chrome accent doesnt match the gunmetal dash.
