Most people find that the stock-style late-model shifter sticks are too much of a "reach" when a T5 is swapped into an early model car. I did a little research a while back and found these alternatives from Hurst:

5380015 - 8" up, 3" back, chrome steel, 3/8-16 thread
5380100 - 10" up, 4.75" back, chrome steel, 3/8-16 thread
5380178 - 8" up, 3" back, natural aluminum, 7/16-20 thread (GT350Clone)
5380179 - 10" up, 5.5" back, natural aluminum, 7/16-20 thread
5380201 - 9.5" up, 5.7" back, black aluminum, 7/16-20 thread
5384106 - 10" up, 5.5" back, chrome, 3/8-16 thread
5386643 - 7.5" up, 9.5" back, chrome, 3/8-16 thread
5387436 - 10" up, 5" back, chrome, 3/8-16 thread
5388009 - 10.5" up, 3" back, chrome, 3/8-16 thread
(Drawings & additional listings are on the Hurst link above)

I swapped in the 5380178 stick. Worked about perfect for me - 5th is a full arm's length, without bending/reaching, yet the shifter is far enough forward that I won't spill my Big Gulp in 4th gear. I stuck with an aluminum stick, since I already had a nice shifter ball with 7/16-20 threads. All the aluminum sticks are 7/16-20, while the steel are 3/8-16.

These looked like the best fits. I think most people will want 8" - 10" in height, and 3" - 7" of curve back. Hope this info helps! Anybody use any of the above or have any alternatives? Post 'em here!

Here's a pic of the 0178 stick in first gear:

Got a picture of it???

I'm interested in seeing how the different sticks look/fit, since the "wrong" one can be a $50 mistake... I had considered the -0179 (alum version of the -4106), as well as the -0201...

whelp, as luck would have it, I received a new dig camera for Father's Day so I will snap a few tonight and post them tomorrow. The stick does bring the ball back a good bit, good for short leetle folks like me but it might be too much for a taller driver *shrug* A good reason to see it in the car beforehand, as you say.

BTW, got mine off eBay - $15 Hurst sticks of all descriptions are on there all the time...I advise NOT paying retail

Very cool! I had no idea that we had so many options with this. I can't wait to throw a 5 speed in there.

That'll work - at least gives an idea of the position!

There was an online auction for charity a year or so ago and it received ZERO bids
