What's the best aftermarket shifter (5 spd if it matters). Shortest throw, shortest length?
I don't necessarily need/want a chrome shaft but if that's what it takes to get the best shifter, I can always paint it.
I don't have a big preference on shifter knob, either. The plain black ones are kinda cool but a nicely recovered stock knob isn't bad although the lower part of the stock knob is a bit deep for my taste.
All of mine have been purchased from member, GTXBULLET: $45.00 shipped Or $25.00 shipped with factory core. For core refund just mail you stock core with a printout of the paypal transaction and Ill refund $20.00. This shift lever will fit all FIERO Manual 4 speed and 5 speed console shifter assemblies.
And this is what it looks like installed:

I have the regular Competition short throw shifter from him. I believe it's the shortest one that he has and you can shorten it even more if you wish. He also lengthens the part below the pivot so that it reduces the required throw even more. It works really well. Just make sure that your cables and everything are in good shape because you will notice an increase in effort required to shift gears because of the lower mechanical advantage that short shifters offer.
Here is a picture of the bracket that attached to the transmission to make the short throw. The one on the left is stock the other two shorten the throw. The one on the right really makes it very short, however it takes a lot more force to move the shifter. I did not like it and used the middle one on my car.
