    Usually I don't like to create threads, but i figure why not!

    I am asking any MGW shifter owner to post a video of them shifting their car, I wanna compare it to the stock one on how much easier it is to shift. with the MGW.

    no vid, but i can tell you the orange handle is bad ass. much more precise, firmer and way shorter than the factory one.

    thanks guys wasn't quite what I was looking for, was more or less looking for someone that had a passenger in the car recording one of you guys shifting with the MGW shifter I wanna see a difference between stock and that one, I had a hard time with I guess the stock shifter, back when I was working at a car dealer I forget what mods the guy said but It may or may not have been the shifter.

    I love the one in my 96. I bought my 04 with a Hurst and I put a Pro 5.0 handle on it, since the pervious owner left the stock handle and aluminum bushings. It's short too...but still doesn't compare to the MGW in my 96.

    yea I am not to sure if the guy that sold it to the dealership had the stock shifter on it, he may have, I remember talking to him briefly but I forgot what he said, all i remember it was hard to shift.

    Yea Ive driven the s197, that tranny was a hell of alot easier to shift with. I am assuming thats the t45! the 3650 is in the v6 and the TR6060 is in the Gt500 correct.

    MGW is not easier to shift at all Exact opposite..., it is much more firm and precise though, with a shorter throw...

    T5 and T56 are some of the easiest trannies I think ford made, IMO... Not sure how much issue you could be having with a t56....

    It's not a T-56, this was on my T-45 equipped GT. Don't mind the 03-04 gauges the previous owner installed them....

    I think this will give you an idea as it shows me actually using the shifter
