Has anyone just change the shifter handle?? I saw you can buy the handle without buying the whole shifter handle.
Wonder what it like????

Yes, you can put an aftermarket handle on your stock shifter. If the handle is shorter, it will effectively shorten the throw for each gear. However, the big problem with the stock shifter is that it is vague, and does not have positive stops. This means that when you really get excited, and bang some hard shifts, you can actually bend the shifter-forks inside the gearbox.

If you ever get a chance to stir a pro 5.0 (or probably most other aftermarket shifters), even with the car standing still, you'll probably be convinced that it makes a lousy shifting transmission into a very nice one, and its worth the bucks to get one. I love mine.
