    I got an email from them a few months ago they said Oct. Or November of last year. They were still working on it.

    Yea that's not the 1st time I've heard that either.. They've been working on it for a while, and there is enough people running these transmissions that the demand is there..

    Well from what George said in the email they have it but are not happy with it yet. Still working on perfecting it. Sounds like they were close. Maybe they will chime in, or maybe try emailing them directly.

    I'm hoping that they chime in for others to know what is going on.. A simple google search brings up threads for a couple years ago.. But I'm hoping that anyone looking into this shifter will google is and this will pop up.. So hopefully they'll chime in.

    Hey guys,

    sorry for not posting sooner....

    The issue with the magnum is that the gear pattern is so off square that making a traditional shifter design makes the gates left and right too tight when shortening the front to back...

    I have dicked with it off and on for over a year or 2 and still cant get a design that io am happy with...the factory dual trunion works but getting it to seal for us is the issue.

    At this point i dont want to just keep making false promises i will only say i will keep working and if and when i come up with a solution i will post us asap.

    well damn, I kept meaning to look into this. The Tremec shifter isnt bad in the meantime thankfully. I'll be in line if/when one gets released

    George,

    Thank you for a straight forward answer. :) This is what I was looking for.. Hey if there is no real ETA, then there is no real ETA.. Nothing we can do about it. Thank you for the explanation as well.. Luckily like DSG2003Mach1 said, the stock shifter isn't that bad.. It's accurate, just not MGW precise.. I will keep waiting anxiously.

    Hope you guys figure it out at some point, stock one is a little floppy.

    I'd be happy with just an MGW handle for mine to get me by.
