I had the MGW on my 04 cobra so I knew I wanted it on my camaro. I have it installed and love it. The throws are nice and short . Go for it, you won't be dissapointed.

I have a MGW shifter in my car. It is absolutley flawless. I don't have the know how to post a video. I assure you if you buy it and install it you won't be disappointed.

Think I'm gonna save a few bucks and get the Barton Ind. one. Great reviews too and Dave has been great answering questions through email.

Would have got this if he didn't tell me he just got some in stock.

So funny how to me how excited I am getting about something like this. I think I made a good choice. Will add my honest review of it once it's installed to the threads already created. Says he's shipping it on Thursday...no idea when it will arrive.

I'm looking at getting one for my personal car (LSx powered/T56) and have heard nothing but the best from the road racing community that uses them. Basically unanimously preferred over B&M and Pro 5.0.

I installed mine over the weekend without incident. Solid as a rock.

It's also nice to buy something where you can actually see where your money is going. Too often I purchase something and think 'You mean I actually paid $$$ for this piddley piece of junk? I could have done a better job myself!'.

So much is included in the MGW kit that I actually wonder how they keep the costs down as much as they do so kudos for that!

I just installed mine today. I ordered it with the SS racing knob, and its one of the best decisions I've made for this car so far. Having gotten used to the OEM shifter, the switch to the MGW was enormous difference. Fairly straightforward to install, satisfying mechanical clicks, better spring action, and it just feels locked in better. It totally changes the experience of driving your Camaro. I'm thrilled with the kit.

Also, the installation video on MGW's site is spot on. I'm not the most experienced mechanic, and I installed mine with no issues just watching their video. Well done, all around.

We did ours with the video but put together a writeup on the installation to better help those that want good pics of everything.
