I have an appointment for my 2017 on Sept 14 for the install. I called their office and she said I was the first in line for an install on the GT350. ( one of the guys at SVT performance has it on a car they own ) They install FOR FREE when you by it from their shop and George, the owner; installs only on Wednesday. I was stunned to say the least. So, I was just curious if anyone else is going to do the same.

Never used the MGW shifter what are the benefits over the stock Shelby shifter?

Installed this week. Paid Pro-Dyno $160 to put it in. Super service!

You don't comprehend how sloppy the factory shifter is until you put this baby in.

Took about a day to get used to it. The side tension springs are a lot stronger than the factory's.

The 2nd-3rd shift is SO GOOD YOU WILL GIGGLE!

I've had 3 MGW shifters in various cars in the past and will get one for the GT350. I know for the GT500 they came out a few months after initial launch with a Rev 2 that incorporated improvements. Pics of the GT500 vs. stock shifter.

I see that the MGW GT350 shifter has been out for over 6 months months with no comments about any revisions. I'll order one shortly for the 350. They truly are aerospace grade precision. I like MGW's reverse lock out feature better than the current lift ring action.

On a related theme, I just got another Lathewerks shift knob for the GT350

Hybrid Piston type. These are on par with the craftsmanship of the MGW shifters. The owner, Chris, is a one man shop in NJ that is a perfectionist.
I have one in my RS and it really feels so much better than the stock knob as I'm not totally liking the GT350 knob, too small.

After a few days I started having trouble getting into 1st gear. Talked to installing shop owner today; he said bring it in Tuesday and they'll take a look at it. I assume it will just need a simple adjustment of the linkage.
