if you want looks TWM is the shortest... if you want short throw B&M. As far as stiffness goes, ofcourse TWM if more stiffer than B&M. I have B&M and I'm happy with you. Pic is on profile if you wanna see.

B&M has a shorter throw than stock
all the others just give you a shorter rod.

honestly, my oppinion is that short shifter make it harder to shift accurately...

lots of people that actually race their cars done use a SS because its easier to mis shift.

it does, especially TWM
that's why B&M is the best one.

twm is good if you, actually i dont know why i have it...It looks good. If you only want expirenced manual drivers to drive your car. Not your girlfriend, or your dd. Its hard to change gears, I wouldnt say misshift, but it takes so much force to move it, that its almost hard to drive at first. The fulcrum is moved to a different center, which makes it harder to move. By the way, reverse in a GTS is almost impossibe with twm. But if you want the shortest looking shifter there is

Where did my sig go? help me find it..........

i'd say B&M--i've driven my bf's gts and it's not that hard to switch gears. and you can always cut the rod down of the B&M if you want it to look shorter and still get the shorter throws thumbsup

^^^ Yes but TRD is only applicable with the 2000-2001 models before the factory upgrade. I bought one and didnt even know I had the factory upgrade. The only thing that was wrong with it was that it wouldnt go into reverse... but it was very smooth shifting other than that! thumbsup
