Hurst vs GM Performance short throw shifter

When I ordered my '13 SS the only option for a short throw shifter was the GM Performance. Why did they stop using Hurst, and is there really a difference?

I reckon the difference is over money and what GM was paying Hurst for the famous name.

The Hurst short-throw that was a factory option was a nice-shifter for sure...(I got one)...but come to find out, it's not like any other Hurst, no interchangeable parts, built uniquely for the Camaro...

My guess is the Chevy performance one offered now is basically the same, just not built by Hurst....

Is the gm performance shifter the same one they put in the 1LE? If so, I say go for it! Mine feels great!

That's what I've heard. It just doesn't feel as solid as you'd expect it to.

Mentioned above I had the factory Hurst...I did, however, change to the Hurst Billet Plus shifter...That is shorter throw and "solid" feel for sure, and you can play around with different Hurst parts and knobs for the "look"...

...Don't know how it actually compares to the new GM Performance shifter, though....

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.

was really disapointed to find out my performance shifter was not the Hurst... guess they stopped this in 2013 with the introduction of Chevy's own shifter. They push it on you to keep the profits with them and not Hurst.

kinda sucks but the GM performnce shifter is good regardless
