there are quite a few threads on here like this. You can expect to get a fan of each shifter in here.

But, having said that. I'm gonna vote early for MGW... complete replacement shifter. NO problems at all. Feels great.. short throw.

good stuff

That is one of the drawbacks to the MGW... they don't give many discounts. I've only seen a few of them for sale in the members classifieds and even then they aren't discounted much.

The install is not bad if you take your time and watch their video it should take about 2 hours. the hardest part is the clips for the arms (not all that hard). but other than that it's pretty straight forward.

I could be wrong but I think they are pretty much direct unless you find a deal from an induvidual. I had the Hurst after market Billett/Comp. Liked it alot but am trusting OP's opinions about the MGW. Had one shipped to installer where car is getting some work done. Pricey,but it is a replacement shifter,not just the rod. NO compaints about the Hurst-liked the 'old school' styling. Hope the MGW lives up to the hype-Good Luck

I have a Hurst myself. Love the old school look. I would say about 75% of the members on here will say MGW tho. I just didn't have that kind of pocket change at the time...

I just installed my Hurst and it makes the factory shifter look like a tinker toy. True it is not a complete replacement but it it feels rock solid and has a nice short throw. Plus the price, $199.00 delivered if you look around. Try Apex Motorsports, they ship super quick.
