MGW is soon to release a revised MGW shifter and shifter mount combo. This new shifter unit,
(MGW Phase II) also includes a new shift Rod and shifter box mounting rod.

MGW announced that no other MT-82 shifter "fix" will be necessary once the MGW II shifter is installed. If you are currently running an MGW phase I shifter, MGW may announce a "return core" program to reduce the cost of this new unit.

Estimated price range is $475 - $499, but final product details and pricing is expected in the next week or so.

Will try to post a rendering and more information.

Dave,

While I'm pretty happy with my BF Bracket and MGW 2014 version, I'll be watching what others find out with the new MGW all in one.

Any ideas if you will have to drop the tranny to get the OEM shift box support braked off and the MGW on?  That might be a deal breaker for me.

 

Thanks in advance . . .

Anxious to hear more about this product Dave. I would be very interested in making this move and remove the Whiteline bushing as the NVH is an undesirable side effect. Hopefully this unit would be the cure all to most tranny shift issues.

We will have to keep checking the MGW website for a product release. This should be something special for the MT-82 transmission. But like everything, it will have to stand the test of time and Mustang owners.

Have fun with your Boss!

This from George at MGW:

 

 

"hey guys,


OK I'll try to answer all your questions here...

First...as far as the original version, it is GREAT and we have sold thousands of them and really is the best quality and performing shifter on the market.  And for 80 percent of Mustang owners it is ALL you need.

But...Track guys ( especially boss302 owners ) need something on a different level apparently. I have tracked my personal bosses for years with our shifter and never had any issues but i will not deny the improvement to our original version with the blowfish bracket . Anything that makes the shifter more solid for track use is a great thing.  Noise and vibration are a bad thing though and we decided to make a track version that would give the best performance without the compromises people are dealing with.

So here's the dilema...do you buy the RACE SPEC or the current version....My answer to that is if you plan on EVER EVER putting this car on a track then get the race spec. its just that good. you will shoot yourself in the foot if you save some money now then have to upgrade later. I cannot continue the upgrade core charge indefinitely as we WILL lose money on that venture but i want to get them out there and get people using them and becoming believers in the design.

If you have the current version and you occasionally track the car then i would  NOT upgrade unless you actually have issues on track. Like i said i have put over 20k track miles on 2 bosses ( a 12 standard and a 13 laguna seca ) and NEVER had lockout issues  except at VIR full course in fifth when the trans got really hot but still not a deal breaker on lap times.  But i have been road racing for 20 plus years and have found myself to be very good at adjusting to and working with design flaws in transmissions and shifters.  If you cant beat em join em!! So i decided to focus on making the race spec an absolute no compromises , cost no object shifter and see what happened. Well the result was just awesome. It gave me the performance and confidence to run 10 10ths and not have to hold back a bit. Does everybody need this ? NO....i know for fact after talking with hundreds and hundreds of fellow track junkies over the years that most guys love their cars and will never beat on them like i do and only go about 6-7 10ths out there for fear of wadding up their car. For those...the original version in my opinion is sufficient.

Now for installation...

its actually pretty easy i can actually install one from scratch in about an hour with a lift. you do have to remove the trans cross brace so you can lower the trans and reach up in there to get 2 the 2 bolts up top. one disconnects the linkage arm and the other removes that bent support side arm. thats it. then remove the rear bushing bracket and the factory shifter is out.

you do not have to remove the driveshaft on a 2011-2014 car...it is still up in the air on the 15 cars as we have not installed all the models yet.

the other nice touch with the new race spec is that it comes with the lower box already assembled so no messing with bushings etc.

Even though you can and we have run the shifter WITHOUT the rear bracket- do not do this....the rear bracket lowers vibration and noise thru the shifter by design and has nothing to do with having ANY negative issues with the shifter...i am not sure why alot of people are so hung up on something being mounted to the car. if it doesnt matter and the car shifts EXACTLY like you want it to then stop overthinking stuff and just bang gears!~!~!!!

So...to make things even MORE confusing i will say i have not decided if i will offer both versions side by side forever...may stop production on the original right away...may see how things go...i had intentions of making our GT500 gen 1 and gen 2 together but after realizing how much better the gen2 performed for less than 100 dollars more it just didnt make sense.

We only have 100 current versions of our shifter in stock now. We have 50 of the race spec units that are all but 8 presold and running 200 more right now.

So if you want one of the 8 race specs ready now you better call asap. they will ship next week...the next batch in about 3 weeks after that.,  If you want one of the 100 original versions call us we may run a special on them also.

I'm always looking to improve my Boss 302 and I really liked the schematic I saw of the newly designed MGW shifter and mount. Early reports from MGW are excellent. The new shifter comes with a new shift rod and a new style mounting rod. This one is a beam v. the bent rod now used.

Placed an order this afternoon for a Race Spec shifter and it could ship as soon as next Wednesday.

Hi Rich B.

Yes, there will be. Difference that I know of thus far are the materials used in the bushings and the spring rates. Springs being the ones used to self center the shifter to the natural position. Race versions are limited edition units.

Thanks for the pics 302 HP. After seeing the detail and precision in this piece I've decided to jump in. This will be a great winter mod along with the tranny fluid change. I'm hoping this is the silver bullet and I will remove the modded Whiteline bushing. Christmas is coming early here . Thanks to George as well for such a beautiful piece of engineering and your explanation.

Yes, indeed she does look like a finely made product. Now I'm not an engineer, but I've been work on, and around cars my whole life and the way I view this new shifter is simple.

Here is my thoughts on this new MGW unit: It turns our MT-82 external remote shifter unit into a top loader style type transmission shifter assembly, just without the transmission case surrounding the shift rod and support. This is why I have confidence in this design and view it as "The" fix, verses another MT-82 Trans shift aid.

You see, this style mount is so robust, it be ran without the rear body mount in Hard Core Race conditions. But, you must understand George strongly recommends a body mount for most of us who have Street driven Boss 302's.

I have asked George to join us here at the Boss 302 Forum as he can explain all of this much better than I. This weekend George travelled to to the big event at VIR, to race and meet members of the Mustang racing community to debut the new product.

Hopefully he will join us here and explaIn the differences between the Race and Street versions of this exciting new product. One thing I do know for sure is this: "No other MT-82 shift aid product is recommended for use with this product". This means, torque rods, rear mount bushings with or without holes drilled in them, Brackets, etc.

So with that said, we will soon have more information as the product becomes available and real world testing is performed by Mustang enthusiast. Hope some of this information helps.

All the Best,
Dave

Interesting development over here. You may have seen my shout box post that it is beautiful weather here today and I would take the cover off and run the Boss today and tomorrow, (71* tomorrow), well I just got back.

As some of you know, I'm out in the farm land area of southern New Jersey and I have a couple of roads that as suitable for performance runs, twisties and a 1/4 mile run that goes on for almost two miles. Well, I had TracKey, (TK), enabled and she was fully up to operating temps, e.g. engine, trans and rear diff oils as well as coolant temps.

Guess what? WOT standing start, modulating clutch on a 2,600 RPM launch controlled start, first to second at 7,000 RPM, (excellent), then 7,250 RPM second to third, (excellent), then same shift to fourth gear and, oooops, hit the gate! No issues, no grind, just nothing, hit the gate and it stopped without going into 4th gear, double clutch and she sucked right in to 4th. (Note: This is the dreaded "Lock Out" you may have read about if you have never experienced this in your Boss travels.)

Driver error? Maybe, but this is what I am expecting this new MGW shifter/mount to eliminate.

None the less, it sure was fun! Gosh, this Boss 302 is Da Bomb, is it not?

Too funny, have fun and stay safe out there.

Great posts Dave.

And thanks for putting up those pics of the new MGW race spec shifter.

Would be nice to see a pic of the factory shifter mounted to the MT-82 for comparison.

(maybe George has one?)

 

Looks like another top quality part (as usual) from MGW.

For those who have not seen an MGW up close and personal...

Well you know you have something special as soon as you open the box.

It is a meticulously designed part. Even the way it is package is something to behold.

I look forward to George joining here so we can get the full low-down on this new part.

 

One thing I do want to point out.

As good as the MGW shifter is (not to mention the BF bracket, Whiteline bushing, etc)...

If you have a week or otherwise defective clutch, these other products may help.

But they also may not completely eliminate high RPM lockout.

I'm sure individual results will vary.

 

I plan on upgrading to this race-spec shifter.

But I suspect I still may need to address the clutch at some point.

We'll see...

 

Happy Rip'n and Shift'n all,

I'm glad I waited to buy any of the other fixes. Although the blowfish unit looks like it would solve all the problems and reviews are positive, I like the idea that this replaces the problem part as opposed to adding a "bandaid" even if the bandaid solves the problem. Wish I could order this right now but it'll have to wait. Hopefully by spring. The mod list keeps getting bigger and bigger lol.

I agree Rich, I would put this on the coffee table!

Ordered my Race Spec shifter today. They tell me an installation video for this shifter should be out in two weeks or so. They tell you to keep the gold bushing bracket, street block insert and oval sound pad if you are returning your old MGW shifter for a core exchange. Busy next 30-45 days so looking at a January install tyme frame. I'm sure 302HP will get his in first so I'm interested in his initial feedback. Not sure but may want to removed my modified White gearbox mount insert as well. 

 

Still looking to unload my unused, new-in-the-box BFR shifter bracket. Interested parties inquire within.

Got mine ordered today as well and looking forward to lessening if not eliminating the NVH issues incurred with the modded Whiteline bushing. I liked the better shift feel with the bushing but hoping this does it all without compromising ride quality. No matter what it's still a head turning wonderful machine just needing to iron out this weak link in the driveline. Fingers crossed

Tempted, but I have yet to exceed my standard mgw specs. Nice to know there is an upgrade path as my skills increase.

The MGW Gen II MT-82 Race Shifter is explained in this video by George Ciamillo Vice President, MGW. Ltd. This video is very informative and compares the new shift box to transmission mounts.

I will use the 2014 updated version of the rear mount twin post rear body mount as shown in the video. Notice the precision fit of this rear mount when George installs it on the twin stainless steel post on the back of the lower shifter box.



Very happy I ordered this unit last week.

Enjoy your Boss 302,
Dave
