MGW Shifter Questions

Hey I have a 14' GT and have been wanting to upgrade to a short throw shifter. I either want to go with the Barton or MGW. I am leaning towards the MGW. I have two questions will this void my powertrain warranty and is this a permanent modification? In 20 or 30 years the car will be a classic and I only want to modify things that can be changed back to stock. I plan to keep the car forever, but would like the option to return to stock. Barton advertises that no permanent modifications are required. The reviews for the MGW are outstanding and this is probably the way I will go as long as no permanent modifications are involved. Thanks.

As long as you keep the components from the stock shifter when you install the MGW, you'll be able to swap the stock shifter back in. But after getting used to the MGW, you'll never want to go back to the stock shifter. I don't see how it could possibly void your warranty either. I have yet to pull the trigger on a tune, because I'm still hesitant on voiding my warranty, and I jumped all over getting the MGW.

+1 on what they said. You MAY find a dealer who gives you grief but that is a dealer you probablly don't want to go to in the 1st place. I suggest going to your dealer and talking with them to see how they think. This is the type of mod that should never give you any problems with wtty work but being honest with your dealer is always a good idea.

I've had my MGW over a year and it's held up nicely. I was a bit reluctant of the cost but it's performance has made it worth every penny. Like said above, there is no permeant modification to install this shifter so you can return it to stock as long as you keep the old parts.

Well worth it. My dealer actually recommended I put it on after I told them the problem I had

The MGW shifter is 100% worth it. A little bit pricey compared to some other shifters, but because it has the upper and lower bracket it is the most extensive replacement. Just remember, you get what you pay for.
