HURST BILLET/2 SHIFTER
 
Has anyone switched out there stock shifter for the Hurst shifter in there ZL1 and if so what are your comments???

iom13zl1 07-31-2013 02:52 PM

i am going to install one in mine next weekend. waiting for my roto fab intake

I did and love it. See my build site

I was hesitant at first, but decided to go for it! I love it! It seems to be about 25-35% shorter throw than stock and feels great!

Are these difficult to install? Are they specially designed for the ZL1?

They bolt right in to the ZL1. IMHO infinitely better than the stock shifter which was a little soft for my taste. I like the shifter to feel a little more firm and positive where it clicks into gear instead of sliding into gear. Get the upgraded bushing set that is available with it. I had the MGW set up on my SS and I know that is highly regarded by many on this forum, but the Hurst blows it away. Good luck, Peter

Sounds great. Where to order from? Part #? Is it the same unit Hurst makes for the SS?

Thanks to all I just ordered mine and it will be here next week...All the new shifters have the upgraded bushing...

The stock shifter link supplied with the kit does not fit the ZL1 shifter knob. I used the upgraded bushing kit from Hurst, it is a good thing it comes with extra o-rings as one was cut during the install, if you get the upgraded bushings remember to measure the width of the stock bushings, so you can compress the new ones to the same width. The only thing that gave me the worst time was getting the rubber dust boot back in place.

Shifting is sure and precise!!! Great upgrade!!! :thumbup:

Great looking end result! Especially like the black shifter knob. How many hours would you estimate the install took?

Holy crap I'm glad I found this thread! I tried like hell to get the stock shift knob off...even rigged up a lever and moment arm (2x4) and almost destroyed the collar just below the knob..I called Torq Speed Lab, Hurst, and they all said "it just pulls straight up"

Did GM change this in 2013? Got mine installed in about 2 hours as well. Getting ready to drive it here in a few.

Thanks for posting up how to take that damn shift knob off! :headbang:

Just finished install and this shifter is GREAT ! Shortens the throw by 50% love it !!!!

jeffrop 09-02-2013 12:24 PM

Anyone know if there's adjustment with this shifter? The lever goes into all the gears with a nice firm feel except for 2nd gear. It's almost like it needs to engage just a little bit more for it to feel right. I've missed a couple shifts now because of it. I really have to ram it into 2nd to make sure it's fully engaged.
