Whiteline tranny insert

So i just installed the whiteline tranny insert and took my car for a short spin and it seems like its a little bit harder to put it into gear now. Its not horrible but seems a little harder then before. I have a brand new 14 GT with 500 mi on it btw.

Is this normal? Or could i have managed to screw something up on this simple install lol. I deff hear a little more noise from the tranny now but that was expected. Thanks for any help!

Did you install it from the front side of the tranny mount? I've heard of a few people installing them from the rear.

I'm not sure what if any difference there would be about installing from the front or rear. When I installed mine the factory bushing was the same on either side and so was the cross member.

So do you think it will make a difference? I think ill switch it anyway to see it the shifting gets a little smoother

It firmed up my gear engagement a small amount. Mostly it just made it damn near impossible to miss that 2nd-3rd shift at WOT.

What other shifter/transmission mods have you done?

I'd withhold judgment on the trans bushing until you've done everything else. If you are still missing 2-3rd, then the bushing isn't doing it's job somehow.

Highly recommend the MGW over other shifter set ups. It's one of those things where you most certainly get what you pay for. I've heard ok things about the Barton, too....but the MGW is in a class of it's own.

I recently installed a shifter bushing from aftermarketsuspensionparts.com. It was under 20 dollars and was worth every penny. Car shifts much better. Click image for larger version

The Barton two post bracket, Whiteline bushing and stock shifter with polyurethane motor mounts works really well for me. These mods really firmed up the driveline.

Shortest throw doesn't mean best shifter.

MGW replaces the stock lower box as well for the same money as the Barton and the machining is the nicest quality you will find.

Shifter

I have had MGW and Barton both, currently running a Barton shifter it is my personal preference between the two I do not knock either one but just my preference turned out to be the Barton, zero issues to date in past I had no issues with either.

Just installed my MGW today. What an astonishing change in performance. This should have been my first mod. Crisp, quick and positive shifting. I can now rip through the gears quickly and accurately.
I also have a modified Whiteline Trans Mount. I removed the center section to make the NVH acceptable. In my car, with the center section in place, the sound and vibration coming up through the chassis was ridiculous for anything but a track car. Now it is fine and still improved performance.
The stock shifter is garbage.

What he said , I should have adjusted the set screw a little more than what they set it at , but I am not taking it back out to do it. Other than that I love the shifter

Scratch that this thing is starting to get annoying, It won't shift into 2nd at high rpm its like it locks it out, 3rd 4th 5th 6th all fine. Installed the white line bushing today and that didn't help. Think I'm gonna yank it out and get a mgw.

Replace the clutch with a McLeod and very light peddle and no gear lockout

getting locked out of 2nd at high rpm isnt necessarily specific to the shifter - i have an MGW and still have lock-out issues. I think it has more to do with the clutch not fully disengaging.

Any pics on the mod to the whiteline? I'm about to install one and would rather not have the vibration.

OK well if that's the case then everyone would be buying clutches for the 2nd to 3rd issue and not shifters or better bushings, I didn't have this issue before I put it in.

I'm starting to think its me and the ergonomics of the shifter. I have it like this pics in the instructions have it on where to mount the handle since they didn't tell me where too. And in this position it is off center which is why I think when I'm going to second under high rpm I'm pulling it towards me a little and not straight back. Anyway just my opinion.

I don't think there's an issue with the clutch itself.. Just the components that disengage it. Everyone replaces the stock shifter because it's a piece of ****. I agree with rapinator, it's a combo of upgrades that is going to fix it. I don't care if you continue to waste money on shifters, I'll still sleep at night. I have the whiteline mount, MGW shifter, and removed the clutch assist spring and it still will lock out. Just saying, it may not be the shifter causing the issues.
