I'm very interested in this also. I've read a lot reviews on AM website that were very helpful, but interested in more opinions.

I installed the Barton shifter bracket, which replaces the our stock piece of junk bracket and it makes the shifts a lot smoother and accurate. Then I installed the SR performance short shifter, which is one of the least aggressive short shifters and it definitely quickened the shifts, made it a little more accurate. However pushing the lever down to get into reverse is more difficult, but not much of a hassle, and if you're not gentle with you're shifts then it will make a noticeable clicking noise. Overall I like it for quick sifts when drag racing and the throws aren't too short for everyday driving. Hope this helps. If u have other questions feel free to ask.

MGW makes a really solid shifter for the MT-82. It replaces every single component of the shifter. Bracket, clamshell, shifter and even the shift ball. It feels fantastic but it's not for a builder on a budget. It runs about $450.

I did, it took me about 2 hours. MGW has a really good install video on their website. I followed it while I installed mine, pausing it when I needed.

I'm not sure what a shop would charge but if someone asked me if I could install it for them, I would probably charge around $100.00.

I felt the price tag. It wasn't easy to drop that much on a shifter but after the first time I drove it with it installed, my first thought, totally worth it.

Look at the Barton short shifter. That's what I put in my car and I love it if I remember right it reduced the throw by 50%. It was by far the best mod I did to my car

I almost pilled the trigger on a Steeda. After much research decided I would splurge on the MGW. Can't really say how the competition is, but holy chit, this MGW is fn amazing!
Install was very easy and straightforward. Yup, the install vid makes it a cakewalk. 1.5-2 hours max.

No, I had a custom ball made in Grabber Blue with white shift pattern and Ford Racing logo in white on each side.

The MGW shifter makes it feel like a different car, the one it should be!
