Hi All -

Currently I have a Steeda Tri-Ax in the T-45... I have read and heard great things about the MGW (Blue)...

Has anyone made a similar switch? Not from stock but from a shorter throw to the MGW? I want to hear what kind of difference it may or may not have made for you... (Quicker, Smoother, etc)

I'm 6'1 and my knuckles drag the ground when I walk... so reach isnt an issue!:whipit:

I switched from a Tri-Ax to an MGW with the blue handle on my 01.

I all I can say is it was TOTALLY worth it. NIGHT AND DAY difference between MGW and Tri-AX.

its quieter, smoother, more solid, more accurate, shorter throw, better shift geometry.

It IS the shifter the car should have come with in an ideal situation.

Well!

After these unanimous words of encouragement... I am going to order one this week! I think I will go with the Blue one... all about the performance!

Thanks all!

I know I'm going against the grain here but, my steeda rocks, it's not noisy, notchy nor do i have any other issues. I've driven a car with an MGW and it also is a great shifter. But, I can't see replacing my perfectly good shifter. Now, if I had issues with the shifter, MGW would be the replacment choice.

So, is the shifter in your car giving you problems? The steeda or Pro-5 are great choices and will help prevent transmission issues.

I went from the Tri-ax to the MGW and I have to say it was worth the swap. With the Tri-ax I had a ton of noise and third gear was still hard to hit on a power shift. None of the noise and never miss a gear. Your milage may vary! :D ;)
