Out with the old, in with the new

I stated in another post a few days ago that I had ordered the MGW shifter for my car. Well, I went outside and started preparing for the arrival of my new shifter by pulling what I thought was the stock and scrapping the old rtv off. To my surprise the car already came with a B&M. Well that's gone and the MGW is in. It feels amazing. I was stunned to see how a company with a reputable name like B&M could be out done a gun manufacturer in Georgia. The MGW is just that much better and they are the same price! Here are a few pics.

Re: Out with the old, in with the new

The MGW must be a good shifter as I have read many posts of owners who like them very well.The only concern I have is the aluminum offset and the apparent thinness of the aluminum where the ball stud screws into it. It just seems like a weak point to me. Maybe not though as I have yet to run across any proof of breakage there.


Myself, I have owned and used a Pro 5.0 shifter for over 10 years now. It has served me well and still is serving me to this date with absolutely no issues and it makes it almost impossible to miss third gear when speed or power shifting.

I had an '84 GT previous to my '90 and had a pro5.0 which I was very happy with. I would of bought another pro5.0 if it weren't for this forum. I would of never heard of the MGW. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about the pro5.0. I loved it. Just wanted to explore some of the other products out there with this build.

When I installed my MGW I thought the exact same thing. I figured it was only a matter of time until I snapped it. It's been 2 years and thousands of extremely hard powerful shifts and I haven't had the slightest issue or complaint about it.

Did you use the shift stops or not?
