Looks like the gt500's is a bit different. But it wasn't hard on a lift. Actually a lot easier than expected. The hardest part by miles was getting the rubber shifter boot on properly. I'm not joking it took me and my dad an hour. It just didn't want to go. Lol.

I did it all myself (except help with the boot) in about 3-4 hours, with plenty of mini breaks and not rushing anything.

Yea I am not knocking the 6060, that's a good tranny. I just thought all the stangs used basically the same shifter linkage. If thats not true, my bad lol.

 

Different trans, different shifter, different issues.

 

Come on,,,,,I don't know of anyone who owns an MT82 that is happy with how it shifts in its stock configuration. It's crunchy, notch or flat out grinds gears. Why even you have gone through quite a few modifications so that you are now happy with how it works. Do the vast majority of MT82 cars shift when asked to,,,yes, Do any of the stock setups do it well,,,hell no.

 

 

Thank the fluid for that, not the shifter. I modded mine because I wanted a direct-feeling shifter, one that I'm sure most people would hate due to the vibration and noise it causes.

Have you guys felt a BIG trans that's a direct link?  Like a Viper?  It's...ah...well, let's just put it this way, a hornball girl would very much like a car as such.  There's very little vibration dampening in the trans vs say an engine that has a harmonic balancer.  Manual transmissions are very crude in this sense.

No, I never have. I should take a video of my MGW race spec tho. It's pretty funny to see the stick actually moving around from things your right foot does. Haha

Thanks for posting the link mariusvt.  I about crapped when I saw what had to be done.  I've ordered the shifter but it appears It will be a little while before I put it in or give it to my son to put in.
