Everything came off as instructed (with some cursing), all the new parts bolted on, and it works like a charm. Now I've got some motor and tranny mounts on the way too
How does the shifter feel?

I need to replace my stocker, its between the hinson and the mgw-p, i just need to figure out which would be better for me.

Very precise and a lot of fun to drive with. Goes in and out of gear the way that it should with a sportier feel. You won't be disappointed.

Makes a nice metallic clunk and the amount of force feels just right. You'll have to get used to how much tighter together the gates are, but once you do, downshifting becomes a breeze compared to the stock shifter.

The metallic clunk you hear comes from the detente pin in the transmission. Just FYI, but thank you for the feedback. It is appreciated and glad to see your enjoying the product.

Thats what people modify for the anti-venom mod?

Do you recommend the mod or not needed with this shifter?

Precisely. I have not had anyone give us the feedback of feeling like it should be done. That doesn't mean that there aren't some out there that have done it at some point either before or after our shifter install. I have one in my 06 PBM GTO and would find it really hard to think that someone would find the need to do it, but that's simply a personal preference type thing.

You have to loosen the bolts on the trans brace to get the trans to drop far enough to get your hand on the front two bolts. This is a pretty common thing due to the way the GTO is designed.

you can use a long ball allen wrench on the 2 front bolts and go through the 2 holes for the boot ring , and lower the crossmember enough

but lowering the trans crossmember does give you alot more room

It really is pretty easy. We have a lot of people do installs in their driveways and garages. I know I have done my fair share. Go for it, you wont regret the install.

Anybody that installed the transmount feel it raised the tail shaft up by a lot?

I'm thinking it needs to be shimmed down a bit on mine, I feel like I'm getting some drive line shimmy due to the angle shift. Wanted to test it out before I installed the one piece drive shaft
