Sounds good. I looked at several other short throws such as the Hurst, Steeda etc, but I haven't heard the best things about them. Don't know too much about the MGW either but seems like everyone who owns one loves it.

MGW is the only shifter out there that is an actual improvement on the factory shifter design instead of just doing a billet copy or the stock shifter and taking out all the slop. Its the smoothest shifting shorty shifter out there, probably the best one to get honestly. After the MGW I'd say the Tri-Ax is the next best one and its as good for banging gears if you like notchy shifts and don't mind the noise from the shifter. The rest of the pack is kinda meh... the Hurst is ok and looks killer.

Sounds good, like I said.. Heard nothing but good things about the MGW. Hopefully it's just as good as everyone says it is. Can't wait till I order mine, get it installed and get rid of that sloppy stock shifter.

Pretty easy man, about a 2 hour job though. Hardest part is getting the old one to break away from the sealant but i was very careful and took 30 min removing it. Pm me if you have any questions.

2 hour job? For a shifter? What???? Lol its a 15 minute job. To get the old shifter to break away from the trans you just stick a Phillips screwdriver in one of the holes closest to you and pull. Using it as a lever will break the seal on the old shifter. Then its 4 bolts out, install new shifter, set the stops if you don't have a 3650 trans and button it back up.

Ah ok I was gonna say... Sucks that the PO was an idiot enough to use that much sealant. I mean hell I'd be worried about some of it squeezing out during install and then falling into the shifter area and gumming something up or even compromising the trans fluid. I mean its still going to be a very small amount but you never know...

I just installed it. There is a lot of noise from the shifter while driving is that normal? Or did I do something wrong? And I love how short it is but for some reason it's a little hard going 1 st to 2nd is that normal and I just got to get use to that too?

Did you transfer the little black plastic piece under the stock shifter to the new one?

Hmmm, it a little noise is normal, like a very slight metallic noise but nothing too obnoxious. The MGW is actually the quietest one, ppl who ride in my car sometimes ask "what is that noise?" because of my Tri-Ax. It should NOT be hard to shift 1-2 though, should go like butter. Do you have an adjustable clutch quadrant or anything?

Compared to the stock shifter they're all notchy. Also, for you guys who just got new shifters, adjust your clutch cables. If you have a stock quadrant still, just yank UP on the clutch pedal. The stock setup has a self adjusting mechanism that'll take out any slack in the cable when you pull up on it. If you have an aftermarket setup you should know how to adjust it already.
