Alignment tool seemed to do its job just fine for me. Everything works fine first shot.

I do feel like the stock shift knob is a bit higher than it was on the stock shifter and first is more in the middle where third used to be... but I'll figure it out soon enough.

Very nice pick up! MGW makes some high quality stuff. You can really beat the snot out of their shifters.

It was really straight forward. The sticky insulation/heat shield stuff they have you install was probably the toughest part.

Oh, that's as long as you don't drop any bolts into the tunnel... I dropped the shifter knob screw into the tunnel and screamed an expletive. I was not happy. Dug around in there for about 5min with a magnet on a stick and finally found it.

Shifter is good stuff tho!
