For what it's worth, although I know nothing about OBX or whatever, here is my advice:

It's a shortshifter. It's connected to your transmission. The most expensive one is STILL only going to cost $150 or so, so don't cheap out. If you ask around, anyone on this site who has one has either TWM, B&M or TRD. They're all different in some ways but accomplish what they're designed to do. They're all quality pieces. I'd stick with one of those three thumbsup

i agree its connected to one of the most expense parts of the car but its a piece of metal... the only thing a bad shifter could possably do is to wear out the shifter bushings that are connected to the stick.. which can happen if you don't lube them up enough on any of the above mentiond ss's

a ss is a ss only diffrences is the amount of throw

don't get me wrong i would never buy obx springs or any of those coil overs that use stock struts but its a piece of meatal that has no direct contact with anything important (conects thrue cables)
and again ive had mine for a year now and have had no proplems shifts like the first day i got it theres little to no play unlike the stock


so as always its up to you but imo the obx is a great shifter
