I had a Hurst in my 12' SS and comparing it to the shifter in my 1LE, I prefer the current 1LE / ZL1 shifter. Maybe it's just me but I like the factory "performance" shifter. Not quite short throw but better than the standard factory offering. That being said dont get me wrong the Hurst was nice but then again there are a few other good options available too.
