Look at your stock shifter you will notice it has a small black rubber boot in the center of it. That boot keeps out the weather aka rust. You will notice there is no rubber boot in the same position on the Hurst Billet plus. That is the reason I'm swapping shifters the internal parts are coated in rust and I have constantly squirt grease into it. I am not talking about that big rubber boot that is inside the cabin I'm talking about the small rubber boot that sits in transmission tunnel. So buyer beware...

You're supposed to reuse the stock rubber boot on the Billet Hurst

The bottom boot is imbedded into the stock shifter an can not be removed without destroying it. I tried on my stock shifter, then again on a buddy's that just bought a tri-ax destroyed his too. It don't come off

I drove a friends mustang with the mgw shifter and if my car was manual that's what I would buy.there is no way to miss a gear and very smooth.also has a lot of room to adjust the handle where it's comfortable for you to shift

Not sure what was different with yours, but I removed mine and installed it on my Hurst Billet. It was no problem.

I recently installed and MGW "race" shifter in my car and I couldn't believe the difference!! there's no way possible you can miss a shift and it's so freaking smooth. install was also a breeze and it was my first time.
