Quick install question

I'm am ordering a mgw short throw so just wanted to know if I could install it in my apartment parking lot with basic tools or should I drive up to mgw and just have them install it?

You have to lift the car high enough to get to the right in the middle of the car and work there

There is a youtube video on this, my local shop will charge me 50$ to install

Ya all I have are stands you can drive up on. Mgw says they will install for free so I guess it's worth the hour drive

Ramps, drive up from the front. Takes less than 2 hours, I enjoyed it. The inner boot is a bich tho. If u can get it free from the guys that built it, probably best.
Best mod I've done yet btw, you'll love it

I've only ever used ramps. No jacks stands and lift. I am also not a very big guy either. But I did look at the fact that I could easily do the shifter myself.

Pretty sure their shifted will be my next purchase

Put mine in with 2 Jack stands and one Jack. Took about an hour and half. Super simple install. You should have no problems installing on ramps.

I had better luck backing up on ramps and lifting Behind the front wheel a bit to get access
