SVTboy98 Posted December 4, 2010 Report Share Posted December 4, 2010 As promised, I'd post my opinions, so... I just switched from the Pro 5.0 to the MGW. First of all, let me say that I liked the Pro 5.0 and never missed a gear with it. It has been great for the past 2 years. I had it on the shortest setting which was a little notchy, but expected. The only thing I disliked about it was that while in gear, you could wiggle it from side to side over an inch...just felt weird to me. Now, the MGW... I've always wanted to try one of their shifters because of how much everyone that has one loves it, so I did . What a quality piece. Top notch materials, the best instructions I have ever received with any car part EVER, and just overall very nice. On the first test drive this morning, it is very smooth (I have it set on 5), but the throw is a little longer than the Pro 5.0. I will probably try a setting of 7 next and see how it goes. I'm willing to put up with a little notchiness for a shorter throw. It finds every gear flawlessly, and I'm very happy with the change. As for the side to side motion, it probably cut it in half, but it's a lot stiffer, so I'm glad I made the change. I think no matter what, we will have a little just because of the way the linkage is set up. For anyone that is buying a new shifter, I highly recommend MGW, you won't be disappointed. I have tried most of the other brands through the years, but MGW will be my first stop from here on out. For anyone that wants to save a few dollars and still get a nice shifter, I'm selling the Pro 5.0 for $200 shipped. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
