Great article!! The track times get interesting! Hope its not a repost.


The downside in the powertrain is the six-speed manual's shifter, which remains attached half to the transmission and half on the bodywork. In daily driving or even smoothly hustled along back roads this linkage is quick shifting and pleasantly isolated from the underhood hurly burly, but bang the shift at high rpm and at best you hit a brick wall in the neutral gate, or worse, generate a sickening high-speed grinding. You sure as heck won't grab a gear. This is the Boss 302's weakest feature.

It's good to see they're honest about this in the article.


#LS-378 - So many Porsche's, so little time....
So I guess it wasn't our imagination ! ;D It would be nice if he car was perfect in all aspects, but in bang for the buck still nothing comes close and for the price of an MGW it's an easy fix.
