looks like the MGW still has a shorter throw and it's quieter, just my opinion though

Great Video! I got mine installed last weekend and love it. I agree there is some sound, but its really not very loud. If you we're listening for it you wouldn't know its there.

My wife hasn't brought it to my attention yet, so it can't be that bad.

I like the short throw but not sure about the large white Q-ball?

Really awesome vid!

The sound is not nearly as bad as some of the posts I had read made it seem. Now add a pistol grip to that and it would be perfect...

Nice vid. I love the hurst shifter in my 02 v6 camaro. Only complaint was the plastic shift knob broke after 3 days.

yes that is a very short throw. very impressive. on my 02 z28 i have the factory hurst w/ a short stick and it is nice. been wanting to get the hurst billet. but havnt seen n e real videos like this for a 4th gen.

i heard that the 5th gen requires a lil bit more effort in the shifts, that didnt look like there was much effort on those shifts lol.

I added the Hurst shifter and bought the "Pistol Grip" handle. There are 2 main problems with the Pistol Grip. 1 : It is too tall. It is 4 3/8th inches from base to top so the short throw is lost due to the height. And #2 problem is that the threaded adaptors that come with it do not fit (too big diameter) the threads on the chrome shifter. I am sending it back for a refund. The white ball looks good as my car is black with the inferno orange interior and the contrast is nice. A black ball or the black billet ball would also look good.
IMO rethink the "Pistol Grip".

Very nice Killer, I like the shift from 2nd to 3rd with the Hurst compared to stock.

Can't see the vid on my iPhone. Have to see it tonight. I had one ordered with the car but had to cancel to get the car built

There are aftermarket shifter balls out there for $46. You get black ball with Hurst embossed on both sides a new Hurst chrome handle and another boot retainer.

We installed two Hursts in little under 3 hours. The first install (mine) took 2 hours. The second one took 45 minutes. Had to take a 15 minute union break though.

The throw is awesome! The sound and feel, equally awesome.

My only wish was to have it installed and coded on invoice (as I had originally ordered) from the factory. But I did have fun bonding and getting close to her.
