Thanks guys and yeah i love it, its pretty tight tho like if you dont drive a manual a lot it would be hard but thats what i wanted it to be like. It finds every gear perfect and i feel like thats just one more thing that makes my car faster. I definately recommend a weighted shift knob mine is over 500 grams and definately improved how smooth and easy the shifts are. And this is the knob lol thats what i call my car just a big joke.

Haha. The other day Bullitt1075 asked me if I wanted to sit in his car and run through the gears on his MGW. My answer was: "No. I don't want to." (I'd already done it once) If I had, I would have probably been ordering one on Monday morning. Lol. They really are very nice. Excellent addition to your car...

I like it, then again I am prejudiced:



I did mine 6-1/2 years ago, like you I found it too pretty to hide...

There is one other guy I have seen do this as well. And to comment on it finding gears perfectly..I had my cousin in the car the other day and he was questioning me about if it was hard to shift....I was in second and said watch, pushed up with 1 finger and watched it slide right into third. He was amazed that it auto centers...

They're like $180 IIRC? They are a great shifter but I'm biased against them simply for the fact that it doesn't fully cure my issue with reaching the shifter knob comfortably like my current setup does. I've got a tri-ax with a rock crusher shifter handle and can hit every gear with the seat very far back and my elbow on the console armrest. /lazy

Whar did that come from I haven't seen that before.

Here is my current setup with a Tri-Ax.



Throws are a little long but I like it. How are the throws with that MGW contraption? If I somehow stay manual trans I might try it out. I'm having knee issues and probably converting to auto but going to physical therapy and might just be a few months of that and be good. Who knows. If I stay manual I'm probably going to find a 3650 with a .62 overdrive and I'd need a new shifter in that case.

I like the long throw but got old when i would have a drink in the cup holder and i would hit it everytime going into fourth. the mgw is so short and precise all down to how you want your setup to feel i like it short.

Looks bomb with that knob. Does the weight of it really improve the throw though?

When I ordered mine they had not anodized the arms yet, so I told him to send mine un colored since I was putting mine under the boot, truly a great shifter.

I am not seeing many of the MGW installed under the factory boot. Is it complicated because of their arm? Can the stock boot be used and give a stock appearance?

Yes we just thought it was to nice to cover up, fits perfect with stock boot and shift knob.

Personally i think it does mines about 1.25 pounds so thats a lot of weight and with the mgw its a pretty tight throw and 5th was kinda hard to get sometimes and now its easier but not like omg this is so easy.
