    I'm not so sure I agree: I just installed an MGW yesterday and it's a pain in the @$$ to change gears. The shift effort requires a lot of muscle. I actually dread shifting now I'm not sure if I'll keep in in there... but I'll give it a couple of weeks...

    Ohh yeah, I sure you hate shifting the MGW LOL. I never felt the stock shifter before, but I am sure its soft next to the MGW, I had a Pro 5.0 before the MGW! Give it time , the reason you bought a short shifter is to get short throws and advoid missing 3rd as much as possable, MGW has the Shortst throw for any F-body shifter on the market. Once it get broken in its hella fun to drive!!!

    I just installed Full Umi Susp. stuff with an FAY2 Watts link check out my video I will be posting soon!!

    I love my MGW. Easy peasy install and great shift action. I was coming from the stock hurst after missing one too many 3rd gear shifts at the track. Took a little while to get used to it but i love it now.

    Simple physics.... shorter stick = less leverage = more force required to swap cogs. Not much you can do about that.
