I've been curious about the Blackworks myself, but since it's so close in price to the Skunk2, I can't justify it.

B&M is a guaranteed win

Everything else has a possibility to disappoint.

You won't really know until you try them but B&M is tried and tested and is probably the safest bet

I had an OBX and it lasted about 2 years. Now I'm using the B&M and the quality is much better! The OBX used bearings instead of a solid bushing like OEM. The bearings are what gave out. B&M all the way!

The B&M comes with a bearing, correct? It's always pictured without it for some reason. When my friend got one, he had to use the bushing out of a stock shifter.

They miss shifts because they are trying to shift too fast. Shorter lever = slower shift.

Then they don't understand no-lift shifting. Lift off too much and the synchro shifts to the wrong side, but I'm not gonna explain that.

Short shifters suck.

OEM, FLP, or Circuit Hero shift extender!
