Default New Magnum F Bowler shifter

Finally had time this weekend to install the new Bowler Magnum F shifter. The stock Tremec shifter was leaking horribly and the boot was torn from the factory. The new Bowler shifter is a work of art just look at the work on it but it performs even better than it looks. The stock shifter seemed ok till I installed the new one and realized how much better it was. The shorter throw is awesome.

I'm kicking myself for being cheap and getting the Hurst Blackjack shifter instead of the Bowler.

After replacing the leaking stock T56 shifter with the Blackjack i still had a leak, returned to Holley under warranty and installed the new one thinking I just got a defect unit, new unit leaked as well, then based on recommendations from the Lat-G members I flipped the shifter to the rear position (required me to build a new plate for the same stock center console you have and new patch panel for the tunnel), and currently the damn thing is still leaking.

Lesson learned, may have saved $200 on my initial purchase, but spent way more time and effort trying to fix leak that dumps on my exhaust and smokes when I'm stilling at a light.
