I have a proper chrome stalk, white ball hurst shifter ready to go...if I can simply get the time to install it

Yes, the optional short-throw shifter is the same as used in the 1LE and ZL1, and available from Chevrolet Performance.

I agree. I don't hate the shifter in mine as much as I hate that stupid knob. I'd like to meet the person who's hand fits that knob.

I don't know about the new GM shifter, but the Hurst that chevy put was 22% shorter throw then the stock shifter. The after market Billet Hurst shifter is 44% shorter throw then the stock shifter. I have the billet Hurst shifter and love it.

That's why I bought a cueball shift knob from that guy on here before he got banned for not being a vendor. Idk if I like the way the chrome stalk looks, it was nice in my Shelby GT but it's kind of weird in the Camaro. I'm pretty sure the Hurst lets you use the stock setup though.

The Hurst Billet shifter can be used in the V8 & the V6.

When you can pop it out of gear with two fingers (my index and middle).. that's a bad shifter. Can't wait to tear that thing out of there and drop a ZL1 in it.

By the way, have they done any toying with a shorter shaft on the short throw sticks like they did the WS6 short sticks of the 4th gen?

What complaints were those? I had a stock shifter replaced with a factory Hurst and I have no complaints about the factory Hurst and think it is a great improvement over the stock shifter. I hadn't heard that reason from anyone on why they discontinued the factory Hurst. I would think they discontinued it because the ZL1/1LE performance shifter has basically the same throw as the Hurst and they don't have to pay Hurst to put their name on a shifter that already has the same throw as the ZL1/1LE shifter. Plus the factory Hurst shifters were not a big seller from what I have heard (and seen). The only complaint from owners I could see would be the cost of the factory Hurst.
