Across the pond!
Took the plunge and ordered the MGW flat stick shifter based on the "cult like" following it seems to have - really couldn't find a bad review. Considered Steeda and really almost bought the Barton as it has a "cult like" following with the challenger crowd (and a similar story to MGW as far as the company goes). Will be installing that, along with an FRPP aluminum one piece driveshaft I just received.....going to tackle the spark plug replacement too (fingers crossed). If I get done "early" I may do cams, but at 76k on the motor, I would think I should do the timing components too. Opinions?

Looking to purchase the MGW shifter for my 06 Saleen, OP did you have any interference problems with the shifter kit and 1-piece prop? is your car lowered? as MGW when I spoke with then recently informed me the max diameter for driveshaft is 3.5" to avoid interference but if the car is lowered this might cause a problem

Both fit fine together with plenty of clearance - I am just lowered 1/2" in the rear - The shifter works great, but I was actually fine with the stock shifter - I have probably put 500 miles or so on it - if you're interested in a lightly used one at a good price let me know

Finally removed the MGW and put it on ebay.....I will say, I don't think it's humanly possible to miss 3rd with it.....push it out of second, and it seems to naturally find 3rd at any rpm....the same with every other gear for that matter....I really only changed from stock as I wanted the flat stick look and the knob to be positioned higher....I never really had a problem finding the gears with the stock unit - I've been driving the car more and the "notchiness", if that's a word, was starting to annoy me.

I see your listing on ebay. I'm interested in purchasing here.
