New noise after MGW install

I just had my MGW installed but now i seem to hear some more road noise and also more trans noise such as spinning when in netural. I know i didnt hear all this when my stock shifter was in.

Could this be due to the parts that are taken out since this is a complete replacement?
Do you think its normal to hear this now?

Thanks

this is not normal. Mine is quiet, no change from stock in regards to road noise etc.

Did you buy it new and install all the sound deadeners it comes with?

Sounds like a boot is missing. I have seen many times where a boot is not put back or reinstalled properly, effectively like having a window open while driving. That is what it sounds like.

Mine is completely quiet as well. George installed mine at MGW though.

Mine is quiet but if I place my hand on the shifter knob, there is a bit of noise coming from the trans.

George would know best. Maybe I'm not listening as close. Like someone else mentioned, I too will hear extra noise if I leave my hand on the shifter, or even cup my hand slightly on top. But normally I never leave my hand on there once the shift has been made.

I had all the sound deadener that came with my MGW installed with the shifter, but still heard road noise coming through the console, so I took some clean shop rags and stuffed them around the transmission tunnel (from the inside), replaced the cover and reduced the noise significantly.

The increased noise over stock may be partially caused by the different material of the MGW body, a different rubber boot, or a combination of both. The extra shop rags solved my noise.

Any concerns about the rags and the shifter operation? I have had the MGW for two years and accepted the noise level increase. If the rags work and there is not a problem with the operation, then I'm off to the store to get some shop rags!

I switched out to the softer bushing, it comes with the hard one preinstalled, maybe that is why.

May I have details on this softer bushing? Where did you get it? Where is it located on the shifter? Any help is greatly appreciated.

George told me they only made one bushing now, which is a medium one. But it was roughly a year ago that I was at MGW so they may have gone back to the hard and soft option.

I bought mine last March or April 2011. Mine came with a hard one preinstalled and a softer one loose in the box, so I switched it to the softer one.

This is the description on the website: High temp. rear polyurethane bushing mount to remove OEM shifter sloppy feel and deflection

check their website and you will see what I'm talking about, i think they are blue in the picture.

That may be the difference, I was there in June or July last year.

I definitely heard more nice after I installed my MGW from the instant I turned the key. Even the starter is louder, but I stopped noticing it after a couple days.

I stuffed the shop rags around the outside of the shifter--between the shifter and console walls. The rags are not close to any moving parts.
