No, I wouldn't hold him liable if I was dumb enough to use it and my car fell because its not fixed to the ground. His shop is not a business. It's actually and old furniture shop that his grandfather left to him. He kinda lives there.

Alright that's it! I haven't had an issue with the stock shifter but I've got to see what the hype about the MGW one that everyone raves about. Ordering now!

Closer than NJ! Definitely worth the ride. Talked to them on the phone several times and they're very knowledgable and great people.

Try without. It wouldn't take much work to add it on later. Here's an example.

I bought the cheaper SR Performance Short Throw Shifter and a barton bracket last year and it worked ok for awhile but now that shifter sucks bad, its wore out and it never goes into the right gear, I cannot wait to get that MGW installed. I will let all you guys know that dont have one how it works compared to a cheaper shifter.
