Mines set at 3 turns... More turns = more notchy...

I WISH I COULD GET RID OF THE KNOCKING NOISE IN MY FRONT END. I'M TIRED OF SPENDING MONEY ON IT... IT'S DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have mine at 4 full turns also.

Way too much to list. I'm broke because of it. Tuned by Blue Collar Performance.

I have mine out at 9. I know the max is supposed to be 10, but since I can't SEE the remaining thread...I'm going one turn short of the max. As for the complaint of "notchiness"...I consider it to be a plus, because there is no mistaking whether you are in gear or not. My brother's Hurst feels more like it is passing a hard "notch" than my MGW...mine feels more like it's (rolling?) into the gear, but I definitely know when it is in.

I have my MWG set at 3, had it at 5 but too notchy for me, best part about it doesn't take much to change the setting, just undo the bolt and turn it to the setting you want, takes about 15 minutes

Installed at 4 turns, feels great!
Just feel a little more resistance when shifting.
But no flex!!!

I've never even noticed the notchiness in your car compared to mine, not that I think my Hurst is as bad as some people make it out to be.
