Sent mine in and reused the solid Zo6 mount bushings.

The work looks great and the shifter feel (MTI 6shooter) is definitely solid.

Easy mod to do yourself and well worth the money.

"Instantly on my list of FAVORITE MODIFICATIONS of ALL TIME! "
"Shocked at how much this little change has improved the shifting "
"EXCEEDED my EXPECTATIONS"



Here is a screenshot of the latest customer to install our shifter box.
Thanks for the kind words, enjoy!

Email also sent.

I was able to tracked down a new replacement pivot end ball bushing as well as a new gasket for the lower box with my Hurst shifter from CoreShifters on eBay - might as well have everything fresh and new with this new trick lower box. I think I will also order some self adhesive heat shield insulation material to apply directly to the torque tube under the shifter as shown in the MGW shifter installation video to help protect my investment in the improved lower shifter box.

Here's a review that was done a few days ago

Originally Posted by Sellout View Post
I installed one of these shifter boxes in my 08 Z06 yesterday and meant to post a review of this shifter box here last night, but got busy and forgot. Sorry Tom, didn't mean to keep you waiting!

I reached out to Tom on here the day I found this thread, but he didn't have any lower boxes on hand. Apparently this is a pretty popular modification. No big deal, a few days later I received an email from him explaining that he was expecting some more cores to be coming in within a week, and that I could have a rebuilt Z06 box sent my way within a few days after they arrived. So I sent in the $225 to the paypal address he provided and about a week later I had the rebuilt box in my hands, with the solid Z06 mounting bushings I requested.

Then my work schedule got busy and I didn't get a chance to install it until yesterday. If you've ever pulled the shifter out to install a short shifter then you can probably imagine how easy it is to install this thing. But you can't imagine how much this shifter box can improve the shifting in these cars. My car had 38k miles on it. I was starting to notice some slop in the shifter and this has solved it completely. I mean previously it wouldn't feel very solidly "in gear" when you moved the shifter into say, third. Sometimes I found myself second guessing whether or not it was actually moved forward far enough to really be in gear.

That's all gone now. With this box installed, and no other modifications to the shifting mechanism whatsoever, my car feels as close as I imagine we can ever get to a shifter that's directly mounted onto a transmission in one of these cars. It's incredible. I mean that. It's night and day.

and for the record, I wasn't coming from a completely trashed shifter box like he's shown examples of in this thread. Mine was still clean inside, still had some nice grease around the bushings, but one small section of the rear bushing or seal had broken away and you could see it on the shaft a little bit away from the bushing. Otherwise my shifter box looked pretty normal so I kinda figured I wouldn't notice much in the way of feel but would walk away with a part that lasted longer and just be happy with that. I couldn't have been more wrong. Even with a shifter box that wasn't a total mess, this rebuilt box changed everything about the way my car shifts. I love this thing.

They have small sheets on ebay for about $10.00, it's just about the right amount. Watch the MGW vid and cut to size. Makes a significant difference.

Looks like a significant improvement....Nice work!! Probably best to do this during a driveshaft upgrade/replacing the clutch which I planned to do this year. Good timing for your product, I'll have to include that as well.

Thanks! That certainly sounds like a good excuse to me, haha.

I bought a C6 ZR1 shifter assembly a while back. It helped a weebit on the amount of effort required to shift, but still not perfect.

Would this help with the weak centering spring? Meaning since your shifter requires less effort would it allow the shifter to spring back to center correctly?

Shipping lots of shifter boxes! Thanks for the support everyone, I couldn't be happier that everyone is enjoying them!

Old box disassembly .
Boxes are cleaned, media blasted, machined and reassembled.

Shafts are reconditioned. Part of this weekend's orders.

Iím hoping to send you mine this coming week ... just a matter of finding time to remove it. Do you have cores on hand? May have to go that route.

Just wanted to add some more experience in here...

My shifter box and upper shifter are stock. All I did was send the box to Tom for rebuild, left the upper shifter stock C5. Chose delrin bushings.

The performance result is very much worth it. WAY more direct feeling. Vagueness or rubberyness that I experienced before is gone. Like the review above, my shifter box wasn't that bad. When I pulled it out to send it, I almost passed because it appeared to be so solid. But man, what a difference this made. For what he charges, this is a no brainer. Great work Tom!

Wow! This looks like a must-have modification! I already have the MGW lower box, but props to you for making this part. I'll be sharing this with some of my Corvette friends.

I think so, and the excuse is legitimate. I don't have a wife to answer to, lol!!

What do I need to pay up front in order to get this part from you first, before I send my core in?

Thanks, Tom M.
