Considering switching our Hurst shifter to the MGW, Will it be an obvious change?

I have the first iteration of the HURST shifter which I had the dealer install back in 2009 prior to delivery. Its def cool looking and i like the fact it feels shorter but its still harder to shift no matter what fluid i run in the trans etc.

I am now upping the power on the car alot and will need to row through gears much quicker and am considering doing the shifter when we pull the tranny out for the ZR1 clutch.

Just want to get some feedback for anyone who has switched from HURST to MGW, I am not considering any other shifter but the MGW.

thanks guys.

MGW will be much tighter and the throw will probably be even a bit shorter than the Hurst. I've only missed 3rd power shifting once, and I do it a bunch!

i guess my complaint is the clunky feel from 1st to 2nd then to 3rd granted the tremec all tend to feel this way but i wanted to know if the MGW will smooth this out at all.

gearboxes in BMW M and Porsche feel amazing i would like to get close to that feel but am not keeping my hopes up

I have the MGW and RPM level 6 TR6060 transmission, it's 10X better than stock.

That said, I doubt it's as good as a $130k Porche.

just to clarify...

the aftermarket hurst i believe is a 40-44 percent reduction and i'm sure a rep from hurst can give exact.

our shifter is a 30 percent reduction so it will be longer throw but smoother and less notchy.

remember the shifters are NOT notchy the tranny is!!!

Hurst also makes a factory option which i believe is 20-25 so thats also an option.

other features that we have in our shifter that no one else offers is the added spring back to the 3-4 gate for flawless 2-3 shifting and more precise gear definition.

I agree i never felt a Tremec equipped car feel silky smooth but any improvement will help. George is it the rod that connects the shifter to the tranny the main cause of the notchy feeling?
