Hurst Shifter Question

So I had the Hurst shifter installed today on my Camaro, WOW is there a significant difference in shifting. I love it, it is so quick, does Hurst make an orange shift knob, does anyone have an idea where to buy them. I have Black/Orange interior thought it would look better than the white knob now. I of course looked on the Hurst website and found nothing, but it seems odd they would not make one being most photos shoe an orange knob. Thanks

Nice V6, that doesn't look bad at all! Now the question, do I copy your cool idea or just switch to the black knob?

Yes. The Hurst comes with two different upper pieces. One uses the stock knob. But are you asking if there is a way to use the stock knob with the "chromed Hurst" arm? If that's your question the answer is no.

Do you have yours angled at all? It seems like it would be uncomfortable. How do you like it?

Just slightly angled to fit the angle of my arm and hand. It's very comfortable and easy to get used to! I like the T-handle because it prevents you from grabbing hold of a ball. It's better to shift with the palm of your hand away and fingers towards than grabbing a ball and forcing it, IMO! I really like the retro looks too!

Do you need to remove the rubber boot or can you get to from the shift rod hole.

This video does not cover the V6 centering springs. There are not easy to get too. I had to lower the shifter and remover the upper rubber boot to remove them. Installing the boot back is a real pain you know where. The hurst hot line was no help at all, they told me I need to remove the driveshaft. (NOT) If you do that you need to replace the bolts you do not use them over again.

You should be able to leave the springs and boot installed. It will probably be a two person job though. As the Hurst shifter gets installed from the bottom, someone working from inside the vehicle needs to "open" the centering springs with a couple of flat blade screwdrivers and allow the shaft of the shifter to slide up through the spring ends and through the top of the boot opening. There should be no need to remove the driveshaft.
