I recently installed my MGW shifter and was very impressed with it's construction and throws,mainly 2nd-3rd power shifts. The next day after the car has long cooled I was wondering how the 1st-2nd cold Tremec grind was gonna be, even if a shifter would improve the famous 3650 cold grind. Well, it did fix that annoying 1st-2nd cold shifts in my car!! I'am wondering if it's the shifters that do this and maybe not the tranny's. Anyways, just was so happy I wanted to let everyone here know it fixed mine. I tried the pennzoil syncrhomesh mod and it helped alot but mainly with down shifting and overall smoothness. I think for those who have that issue may want to look into an after market shifter or atleast try reseating the shifter to fix it....
