No, I don't believe that anyone 'dose'.
And that would be because there is no such thing as a 'prformance shifter', 
as the factory item does the job perfectly well, thank you.
Are you a fugitive from a Hurst shifter group (and obviously from a 
dictionary and shift key) somewhere?
The mind boggles at what you'd get up to with 10 shift assemblies (you don't 
say for which transmission).

Perhaps you should content yourself with something easy like shortening a 
stock shifter an inch or so, as there really isn't much else you can do to 
modify/improve on the stock item. Or install a 'prformance' shift knob like 
the MGA coupe I once bought that had a 'Horst' T bar style knob (I was never 
quite sure whether the spelling was intended to avoid legal action by Hurst, 
or whether it had been designed by a German chap named Horst - in any case, 
its total contribution to fast shifting was to ensure that you barked your 
knuckles on the demister control panel if you weren't wary).
