Getting my MGW shifter tomorrow..

And don't have the time or resources to do the install my self. Did any of you guys get yours installed, and how much did it set you back? Thanks

Nope.....installed mine myself (and an extra set of hands from my dad).

Look for a local performance shop or transmission shop to do it. I'm sure if they've never done an MGW before that they would benefit from watching the install videos on MGW's site.

MGW is more labor intensinve to install than the other shifters because you are basically replacing the whole shifter as apposed to just the shaft. In the long run it's worth it IMO.
