Another Happy MGW customer!!!

Here are a few pics of the MGW shifter for the 2010-2011 Camaro SS. I ordered it with the retro handle and black shifter ball with orange SS lettering. The install was straight forward, took about 2 hrs, including lifting the car and setting jack stands. No surprises or problems with the install. The kit I got has several revisions, reuses the stock shift link pin and c clips. Has fixed position shifter housing struts, now has a dowel pin for alignment next to the install bolt, so you won't have to float the shifter in to correct position at the end of the install. The kit now comes with your choice of soft or hard bushings, I used the harder bushings. I have to say that the shift feel is NICE and crisp!!! Does transfer a bit more road noise but hey, don't buy performance parts if you can't stand a little noise. Thanks to the folks at MGW for such an awesome product!!!

Nice!

I love my MGW. I'm a little bias on the Race Knob but this would probably be next choice for me.

I have one arriving this next thursday! I am happy to hear about the new improvements. I have watched the install videos a few times. Now I won't be confused when things are a little different than what I saw in the videos. I decided to keep my stock knob, but your ball looks great too!

I too love my MGW, but like Caverman, I like the Race Knob. I'd like to have that retro knob as well. Looks pretty sharp. I bought my MGW kit a year ago, so I'm not real familar with the changes you noted. Mine seems to work great.
