MGW short throw shifter

Just installed MGW's short throw shifter and it is amazing! definitely recommend it although the install was more complicated than I anticipated but I did it alone which could've been why. Had a couple questions about the install and called MGW twice and they answered immediately and gave me the info I needed, they were very helpful

95% of the install was me being under the car on my back, wouldn't say the install was hard but just that reaching everything you needed under the car was difficult

The best choice for these cars so far. Got one in my 2010 and it definately gives you a much more connected feel. Problem im having now is i want one for my 13 zl1 but i cant get a answer from them whether it will work with factory shift knob.

I mean I'm sure I could do an oil change on my car but I'm not the most mechanically inclined and oil changes aren't that expensive and I don't want to risk messing that up but as long as you follow the directions for this you'll be able to do it

Yea I put mine in 2 weeks ago and its like driving a different car and if you put the race knob on its even better
But you are correct it is a bit of work my hands are to big

MGW provides 2 install videos right on their site. I already watched them through and am planning on using a lift (hopefully) when I install mine. I am sure jack stands would work too.
