    I've been driving the poop out of the 19' GT350 since putting in the MGW shifter. The more I drive it, the more I like it. I can't comprehend a shifter that is more communicative than this one. Totally pleased with it!

    How was the week off? Good thing they don’t ban for stupid because you’d never be back.

    Glad I’m living rent free in the pea brain of yours... so much so that you need to quote me 2x!

    Interesting read until the usual break down of opinions happen. I have a 17, and I have had no issues with my shifter. Now that said, I had a MGW in my 11 GT500. Why ? because the stock was trash. It was truly a night and day difference and worth the time and money to go with the MGW. I have also seen that shifter compared to other brands as I have help friends install them. MGW is a great product compared to some of the others. For the 350, I am still with my OEM because I have not had any issues, and the shifter does not feel sloppy or bad to me. Now will I buy a MGW one day ? Maybe. perhaps when I get ready to do the clutch. Until then I will keep the OEM and keep driving.

    After 36 days of waiting, my Ford OEM shifter showed up at the dealership!! Good thing I purchased the MGW shifter a couple days after my 2019 Shifter crapped out. Now I have a new, updated, GT350 shifter to hang on the wall!

    I'm going with the MGW myself. Quick question, different topic, but do they have a clutch spring assist available for the 2019+ GT350/R's? On the site it says will not fit 2019+ GT350's.

    Most prior owners/drivers say the 2019's don't need it. There were supposedly some improvements in that area.

    Great info less drama... Should I expect pushback from dealer if I elect to go with MGW vs OEM replacement on install if I have a listed car...

    I can't imagine there's a dealer that would give you grief about warranty if you have an aftermarket shifter. If you somehow wrecked 3rd and brought it in, maybe they could try to give you grief, but it'd be a weak argument.

    On the one hand, I'd say this changes the equation. Most of my opinion is/was based on the stock OEM without some sort of catastrophic potential failure.

    Having said that, Ford is a corporation and it's curious what they recall or TSB and what they hide. Account after account of oil consumption and they won't recall or address that, but I haven't read a single solitary account of someone inadvertently shifting into reverse at speed. So this was either something Ford lost in a suit and decided it wasn't worth the risk of being sued again or they know something else they're not saying. It's always an equation (cost of recall or TSB vs. cost of legal and/or warranty claims risks).

    So I'm skeptical that it's truly a problem (with lack of people reporting it) but if it is….then the value of an aftermarket rower now goes up and if you have to pick an aftermarket shifter then MGW is the easy choice.

    Bottom line, it's a poor design. I've laid out why. It might have taken a bit for Ford to be pushed to the brink on it but here we are. The GT350 has some great hardware buried underneath the sheetmetal - just not the shifter.

    From what I understand, yes. The faulty part has been replaced by the manufacturer, so your 2020 should be fine.

    I don't think anyone suggested there was a new, improved design. The 2018/19 problem was a bad batch of shifters. The new replacement parts are the original design from 2015, except they are properly made. Everything Tob said about the design is still true.
