MGW Shifter

Hello All

I recently installed a new 3rd Gen MGW Shifter in my 2013 GT, and I absolutely love it! I wanted to speak to other MGW owners and see how the road noise was after the install? With mine its not much but in conjunction with the White line transmission bushing it does create a lot of noise.

I had it before I did the transmission switch. It is definitely there. I have such a loud exhaust I think I noticed less but you would here it for sure. I do not know if you have an aluminum drive shaft but that accentuates it even more I think. Actually it accentuates all road noise more lol.

My rule of thumb as I have ssaid before is the more it helps performance the more it generally takes away from creature comfort/luxury. That said it will get less over time. Not the noise but your hearing of it.

I just got my MGW in the mail, so I'l let you know my thoughts on the road noise after I get it installed. I don't have a trans bushing right now though.

The noise is probably mostly coming from the transmission bushing. Now that you have the MGW, which is attached directly to the transmission, there's no need for that bushing. The original purpose of that bushing was to limit movement of the transmission under load, thereby reducing misalignment of the transmission with body mounted shifter. It's not necessary now and you could quiet down your car back to stock levels by putting the OEM one back in if you want.
