Shifter difference.

more than likely different gear ratios in the two transmissions...

From your description, the lower bushings on your Hurst shifter may have been damaged during install. Shifts should be precise (tight) and short without much free-play or slop while in gear (much like what you have described in your friends car). Contact Hurst at (818)483-1366 for new lower bushings.

You won't need to completely remove the shifter to install the lower bushings... and be careful when installing the cross pin into the new bushings. Do not force it in - it should be a slip fit.

BTW- the TR-6060 transmission in the SS does have a slightly shorter gear engagement (roughly 5mm) than the AY6 in the V6.

well the pin went in fine. I wonder if they make metal bushings for the shifter other than the teflon ones. I like the sound of a loud shifter.

Most people don't (even on purely race cars). Plus, unless a coated or oil impregnated metal was used for the bushings and a new hardened cross pin (the stock one isn't hardened) was used you would still have to constantly re-lubricate. This is one of the many reasons Hurst used Teflon in this area.

A better option for someone who wants more noise would be a harder high temp polymer (possibly 20-30% glass filled) with a minimum of 10% PTFE (Teflon) for smooth operation.
