Re: Short Throw Shifter

MGW...I think I paid a total of 411 for everything shipped. I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but usually they are making them in bulk and typically folks have been on a waiting list about 8 months ago I was on the waiting list to get mine. Might be the reason for them being a little cheaper. I did not get the jam nut or knob.

The sound comes from the very solid mgw shifter with very solid parts not from removing material. The mgw actually adds material to dampen the sound. Any time you add solid parts and solid bushings you will increase noise. Just like a adding suspension parts adds noise.

Mine gets louder the longer I's quiet for the first 20mins or so.

Even though mine is for the tremek 3650, I have found the MGW to be the most quality feeling short shifter for my car that I've tried. I compared the Hurst, pro 5.0. and the MGW, and in my opinion and all of my friends, the MGW is by far the most precise/solid feeling shifter.

I wrote up and install procedure on this site for the Mgw installation. Complete with photos but just search Mgw shirt throw installation and u should find it. Takes about three hours to fully install. There is a video on you tube for installation of the shifter as well. The kit comes with all parts and lubrications required including lock tight. I have the heat shield and for an extra ten bucks might as well pull the trigger. Once again it is easy to install. I have almost no noise coming through the shifter, no vibrations in the shifter and absolutely no heat through the shift knob. You will love this shifter and will no doubt be one of your favorite mods. These guys also make gun parts and like the gun parts their shifters have very small tolerances. They actually scrapped two previous shifters they. Ever brought out because it wasn't up to their standard. have any questions about the Mgw specifically send me a pm
