Turbo action for myself, I have had a couple of them and never had any issues, extremly reliable. Really just come down to personal preference though.
I am not really sure what the question is, but I am pretty sure the answer is Big Block.

I have a B&M Pro Ratchet and I like it but I have recently had a weird experience with it and I found I'm not the only one.

The shifter was installed and the linkage was all aligned and worked great.

Then we decided to rebuild the tranny.

After the rebuild, I went to reinstall the shifter and I couldn't get the shifter linkage to align properly.

I tried everything and it wouldn't work.

I called B&M and they were no help at all and the rep said this is the first he has heard of this.

That was total bull, because I did a posting about it on another site and sure enough, others have had the same problem.

I got things to work again but not after having to go through a lot of trouble and it's still not the same as it used to be.

I have heard good things about the Turbo Action shifter but I have also had good luck with other B&M shifters as well as the Hurst Quarter Stick.
Those who think they know it all have no way of finding out they don't......... :scratch:

The Turbo Action Cheetahs are awesome shifters. Top notch with a really nice shifter cable.
I don't own one now but, did in years past and it was a joy to use.
