GMM Race Shifter Snapped

As the title says, my GMM race shifter snapped. Must have been from years of hard shifting (I've had the shifter since 2007). Looking for opinions on a new one. From what I've read, Hinson and MGW-P look like some of the better options. Also, I'm looking to replace the white rubber shift boot. Part number 92169186 looks to be discontinued on GM Parts Direct, anyone know of another reputable parts site? Thanks in advance. Carnage pics below

Man that sucks but I do like the nitrous buttons set up! If I were going to get a short shifter after doing a lot of research on them I'd go with the Hinson. On the shift boot I'm a big fan of Rockauto online but I've never looked online to see if they carry that part.

Look at this on eBay:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/271660709573

2004-2006 Pontiac GTO Genuine GM White Rubber Shift Boot

This says they are available. I just changed mine last year and it looks like poop already. Maybe someday someone will make it out of a better material. I just ordered 2 of them to put on the shelf since they are discontinued.

Happened to my GMM handle as well but I caught the issue before it totally split in two. Had it welded and so far so good.

Billet Pro and GMM are the best 2.

That's because it also includes the metal ring. I don't see that on the link to ebay.

GTOG8TA's are not leather.
