Short throw shifters are AWESOME.

Id wait until the MGW shifter is out for the new GT's.
They are the BEST shifters HANDS DOWN for these cars.

Everything is adjustable.
The shift distance you can really personalize because you can do it in such small increments. Anywhere from 50-15% of the distance.

Plus you can even adjust the height of the shifter!

They are also the quietest shifter on the market.
Some shifters can buzz but these will NOT.
You can even have a cam job done on your car and have it shaking and the
shifter will remain silent.

Some shifters can also vibrate a little or be very NOTCHY.
This means they are kinda hard to shift.

The MGW is NOT like this. Now... it does become a bit notchy if you make the shift distance REALLY REALLY short, but compared to others it shifts as smooth as butter.

Some short throws also make shifting a little tricky from 2nd gear to 3rd.
The MGW eliminates this and makes it a FAST, EASY shift with the way it is designed and you can power shift with it ALL DAY.

Many people will tell you they like this shifter or that shifter.
This is really because that is the only short throw shifter they have tried or have not
tried many. NO ONE will tell you honestly they have tried the MGW compared to the other and like the other one better. If they do they are just fan boys and not being honest.

I really DO NOT say one brand is better than the next when it comes to pretty much any mod there is out there brand to brand. This is because there is usually parts I like better about each brand within the mod and what it offers compared to the other brand. I usually say it is a matter of taste and so do most people.

HOWEVER when it comes to short throw shifters it is a DIFFERENT story.
I will say as I did before... The MGW is hands down, without a DOUBT, THE BEST
shifter out there.

You have to order it online from them.
They do a GREAT job with instructions as well.
They give you paper instructions as well as a CD that makes it EASY to install if you have access to a lift.

The MGW for the new 5.0 should be out within a month or two if I am guessing correctly.
WAIT for the MGW short throw shifter to come out for your 5.0 and get it.
YOU WILL BE SO GLAD YOU DID.


The MGW for our 06GT was one of the funnest mods we did.

Plus you would be really surprised how much a short throw shifter will
help you if you do race.
It really cuts down on shifting time which can cut your times down even lower
than some high cost performance mods can simply because you get back into gear and accelerating again so much faster!

Read this thread too
https://mustangforums.com/forum/4-6l...-shifters.html

Read ALL pages of the thread. I believe there are three pages.

It will show you just how many people love the MGW shifters and how much better it is than the other company's shifters.

Hello? Have you read these threads?
You made three different posts in three different sections.
I'm afraid you might be lost. (The person who made this thread.)

Read my reply on THIS thread then click on the link right above you last post in THIS thread that I posted.

It has a discussion about the best short throw shifters and you will indeed see people agree with me on the MGW shifter. It is four pages long. READ ALL four pages man.
There is a little button on the bottom right hand of each page right after the last persons posts that has the number of pages on the discussion. Click on page number two after you read the first page, then click on 3 after you read the second page, then click on 4 after you read the last post of the 3rd page. It's right below the post the last person made on the page.

LOL does that help?

Also I sent you a private message.
On the TOP right hand side of the webpage it has Welcome, PAKMAN.
Under that you will see in blue letters... Private messages.
Click on those blue letters and it will send you to the private message I sent you.
Click on that message and you can read it.

It might be easier for you to ask me questions using private messaging.
I have all the answers you will need on specific shifters etc. and I would be glad to help answer any questions you
have o.k.?
