quick question re hurst shifter

Okay i have searched this topic in the search tool and could not get a straight answer

I ordered the hurst short throw in febuary

I kept it on there even though it was announced of the option delete

Will the order be thrown out , or is it automatically put on a waiting list until the RPO code comes in. I was getting the impression that your order wont be accepted by GM until you remove the hurst.

Can i keep the hurst ordered on the car and just wait until Q3 or whenever it is released and then leave it up to GM to rotate it into the production without me changing a thing?

If this isn't the way its gonna work...i need someone to tell me this...cuz then tomm im going straight to my dealer first thing in the morning.

Why would you hold up your order for what it seems months for a $300 bucks shifter?

I would just take it off to get my car sooner then add the short throw myself later on. There will probably be other maybe even better short throws in the market in a few months.

Agreed, don't hold your car up just for that. The stock shifter is pretty good until you pick another one (IF you pick another).

From what I read on another thread awhile back, the Hurst takes quite a bit of force to shift, great if you're slammin' gears at the track, but possibly not much fun on an everyday basis. You just might end up really liking the stock shifter, which like Snizzle said, isn't bad at all.

I doubt they would change your price for deleting it. If they can't deliver it then they should understand that you want to get your car built.

That is very common with any Short Throw Shifter. My stock shifter was really smooth, same with the clutch even though its not harder cause, this gen of stangs hav ea hydralic, I have to barely press it. It gets some getting used to.

But the car felt a lot smoother with the stock clutch and shifter, Im betting the camaro will be the same.

The headers that GM is going to offer are shorty headers, I wouldnt waste any money getting those from GM. They will be overpriced and you'll probably just see a few horses increases.

I would just get aftermarket none GM parts.

After finally sitting in the car this wekend (and being a huge Hurst Shifter fan) I definitely still want a Hurst for the car.

HOWEVER, the stock shifter was NOT BAD at all, and in fact won't bother me much till I can get a Hurst. In fact I'd almost venture to say its the best stock shifter I've felt in a GM car. Very accurate and the throws were not too long. Worlds ahead of the stock 4thgens rowboat paddle.

Greetings,

Im new to this forum. Glad to be part of the Camaro5 Forums. Anyway, Delius whats your stat code? The reason I asked is because my Camaro was ordered with the Hurst Shifter also and I am trying to get my dealer to remove it since Monday. Im at 1100 still since OCt. 08 but if your order has already been accepted, it maybe to late to change.

Thanks

I ordered mine with the Hurst shifter on 02/09/09 and my car is built and ready for delivery. Didn't hold me up a bit. Whether or not that shifter is installed is obviously yet to be seen.

I can absolutely guarantee the shifter is not installed on your car. As for how it got pulled with it still being on there , I'm not gonna speculate.

I shifted the gears on the V-6 Camaro at the Atlanta Auto Show. I know it's not the same as doing it while driving, but it didn't seem much different to me than the Hurst shifter I ordered on my 02 Trans Am.

Keep in mind that NONE of us has driven a Camaro with and without the Hurst shifter, so it's all just a bunch of speculation right now as to whether the Hurst should be ordered at all. Just one more reason I am going to wait to order my car. But I am not convinced at this point that the Hurst is something I have to have, but I will be using my car for runs to work and back, not for runs at the dragstrip. And the automatic will probabaly be faster in the 1/4 mile anyhow.

Hurst Shifter

Hello all;
I test drove the SS/RS Camaro with the Hurst Shifter. I was a little surprised how short the shift was. It was really very clean and smooth and went snip snip right into gear. It was so swift short and smooth you could virtually shift with a flick of the wrist. It would probably be good for racing but I like a little more rowing through the gears, that's the fun and pleasure of a stick. If you want/need that millie second faster shift go with the automatic for more money and less fun.

My stock shifter sucked ass. I switched it out to the MGW shifter for more precise shifts. Yes it also shifts shorter but i like that. Also no more ify notchy shifting. It's all gone now
