MGW changes lower components as well. Barton only the upper. I have ford racing and love it but its no MGW.

I was pretty set on the barton but mgw seems to be all the greatness just needed to get some second opinions, thanks!

I have the mgw also and i had a sr performance shfter with the barton bracket and im telling you, the mgw is a 100 times better than anything ive used or seen and you will love shifting again i promise you, just read all the threads that are on here and listen to the guys that are using them, nothing better than first hand experience from people who know cars

Search "Mgw shifter question" on here and you'll see pictures and testimonies of everyones before and after installs. And just looking at the whole Mgw assembly makes you want to buy one right away, its a work of art, I love mine. I bust through gears at high r.p.m.s every chance I get without hitting that 2nd to 3rd brick wall.

I have been trying to figure out since I bought my 2013 if the clunky noise I hear when shifting is due to the shifter or transmission. I've got 900 miles on the car now and the shifting has smoothed out somewhat compared to new. But is isn't really fantastic/smooth. Is the consensus the OEM shifter is the problem or the MT82.

oem shifter is JUNK, if you could see it in comparison to the mgw you would know why
