I'm from the UK and upgraded from my 05 V6 to a 2011 5.0 manual. Just waiting for it to arrive now. It's still running the stock shifter, and I can only imagine the stock trans
I plan to buy an MGW shifter (as long as they will ship to me) and I've located some Amsoil MTF in the UK. I've decided to go with that over MTG because let's be honest, it's the UK. The weather sucks.
Now I am able to use a garage with a hydraulic lift and such and I really want to install the shifter and change the oil myself because I don't trust my local garage with a $500 shifter.
I've read a ton of threads but I just need a definitive answer. Can I install the shifter and change the oil by myself?
What else will I need? Is it just the shifter, oil, a pump and tools, or are there other components and brackets that I need to get all this done? (I heard something about a trans
mount but not sure if I need it).
I plan to do this literally as soon as the Mustang gets here because I don't fancy forking out for a new trans
and shipping to the UK!
Any help and advice is appreciated.
On a side note, if you know anywhere I can get an MGW shifter shipped to the UK let me know, I really want one!
