After running the track at Spring Mountain and downshifting from 5th to 2nd a couple times the Mayor convinced me to put in an MGW MT-82 shifter. Since Michael had already installed one on his GT350 I let him “assist” me for my installation. :shades:
In other words, he installed it, I handed him stuff.

All the parts ready go.

Remove all the stuff and you have a hole. You need to get under the car to as well to get everything undone.

Stock parts go into storage.

MGW stuff going back in.

They do a good job of providing sound proofing.

Almost there.

Back together ready for Laguna Seca next week.

I also put on my track wheels and tires. This part I could handle.

I had my MGW on the track at Spring Mountain. It works really well. Positive gear engagement and nice short throw

Oh no. I have not driven the GT350 full tilt yet on Laguna Seca. The fastest color will be back on track soon.

I had a great day at Laguna Seca. Not one missed shift. There is a little bit of a whirring sound on the street that is transferred up through the drive train. For the track this shifter is the way to go. I had a blast running with my bud with a Boss 302.
