So i was able to install my new MGW Shifter today. I am a complete newb at anything related to tools and it took me about a 1.5 hours to do the entire thing, and that included a break for breakfast in the middle. I did get a knuckle buster when i got the stock shifter off, hurt like a biotch. I haven't driven it yet because i'm going to give the silicone sealing 24 hours to be completely cured. I have shifted through the gears though, and it is so amazing. If anyone is thinking of doing a shifter, this is definetly the one to get! Here are some pictures.
And here is a youtube link to the video i took after install.

Holy silicone batman! I would almost be worried about there being blobs of silicone in the trans to be honest. You really only need a little bit. I used less than half when I did my shifter.

You change the fluid while you had the shifter removed? if not when you do go to change the fluid, grab a 10$ shifter gasket so that damn rtv sealant isn't necessary anymore, plus when you do go to change the fluid it's such a pain in the a$$ getting the shifter off with that sealant on there, I had to lay underneath the car with a big screwdriver and hammer to bang it loose from underneath, now with the gasket it's a 10 minute fluid change

I didn't replace it, and the shifter is already on so no going back lol... If i ever do have to change it then i'll do it the old fashion way by pumping it in.
