Cool!

Mine is being shipped out in the next day or two. Is that some heat insulation pads?

Yeah. I got ARH's and BMR stuff coming too, so I have to wait a bit for the stuff to arrive. Do it all at once on the hoist.

I got mine on wednesday, what a beautiful shifter. Real craftsmanship, I plan to install next weekend in my garage on jack stands. If anybody else is doing it on jack stands, please let me know how it goes. I have watched he video quite a few times and doesn't look like it will be a problem for me.

Sweet, let us know how it works out for you. I plan on going with the MGW shifter and race knob but would like to know some feedback on it beforehand.

Yes please post a review. I have been searching for availability and pricing on this shifter so if some one can help me it would be appreciated. I really would like to give this shifter a shot since I already had a Hurst in my 07 GT and would really like something smoother.

Very doable with the car on jack stands. Took me about 3 hours. Get the car as high as you possibly can. The more room you can give yourself, the better. Getting the spring clip out on the passanger side was a bitch! You'll need someone to help move the tranny toward the drivers side before the pin will come out. Getting the spring clips out took about 45 minuites. Once you get the stock shifter out, the MGW goes in easy. This shifter rocks! The shifts are rock solid and the throw is perfect! If it were any shorter, it would feel weird. My compliments to George and MGW for bringing us such sweet shifter. Now...TIME TO GO DRIVIN!

if you hang on it like a monkey it will go down far enough to give you enough room too but i think that is kinda hard on jackstands sorry man i hate that its a bitch you would think it would not have been a big deal for chevy to give us one extra 1/4 inch of space there to work with. i think some cars are actually a little easier than others too lol


did you make sure when you tightened it up that you could put your finger between thel inkage arm and the tranny right?

Thanks for the info, did you have the whole car raised (4 jack stands) or just front.

Yeah. Good clearance. If you have a friend push the tranny toward the drivers side while pulling down, it gives you just enough room to get that pin out. Has to be the hardest part of the whole job, but totally worth it man. Thanx again George, you da man!

we experimented with many throw configurations and ended up with a 30 percent reduction in throw. i felt any shorter and it just makes the tranny feel too notchy. remember shifters aren't notchy the transmissions are. the shorter you go the more noticeable it is.
