Hurst Shifters in production?

Are the Hurst Shifters in production yet? My dealer said that there still a few weeks away?

Word going around is that the stock shifter feels better anyway. It was more a supplier issue and I think they said the RPO is going away.

It was just grapevine it's supposed to be a little easier to shift. Then again the Hurst is supposed to be heavy duty feel.

I just cancelled my hurst shifter so the order can go in. My sales rep. (who as far as I can tell is partially retarded) told me that they can add the shifter after it gets here, whenever GM makes it availible to the dealers. So in a way it's good because I'll get to use the stock shifter before I switch it and can decide for myself which is my favorite. The thing that pisses me off most is my sales rep. could have told me this 2-3 weeks ago so I could have dropped my STS option to get the order in sooner, hence why he is retarded.

The shifter isn't available from Hurst yet. My brother had to pre-order one at his dealership. Then again, he had to pre-order the CAI also which I thought was readily available.

The shifters have already been done. GM is moving the line from accessoriy option to production option and making some running changes. I know this for sure

Just trying to figure out if this means what I think it does...

So it will still be Optional equipment to us, but instead of coming from Hurst to say, straight to the dealer for install, they are moving it so it can be installed right at the plant itself?

This should not have affected your order. The Hurst shifter was on my order and my car is built. Maybe it is planned to be a dealer installed item.

Thumbs up

I agree.
I think that is a better way of doing it.
I'd rather it be done "in factory" and take purchase of the car when it comes to the dealer and be done with it.
Now, does this include the ground effects kit, stripe kit, CAI and performance exhaust as well? Any info would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!!

I will chime in, we have the HURST in two of our vehicles... my 2007 C6 has it and it uses the factory knob and boot. To the naked eye it is the same but in your hands it is MUCH better than stock. Second isin my dad's 2007 superchaged Mustang GT. Now it is a full new shifter with the chrome shaft and white ball shift knob. I think like the GT500 might have only the GT is a 5 speed, GT500 is 6. It is very fitting in the car and was MUCH MUCH better than stock. The stock shifter was spongy and well... SUCKED.

If I get the M6, I will likely get the hurst, I am sure it will be better...

OH and install it yourself... its cake, if you can work a screw driver and wrench.

My dealer said it will be awhile and let my go production and it may be a long wait.

I took a video of the stock shifter at the Austin Auto Show. Compared to the GTO its feels much better. After running thru the gears in that car im glad the hurst wasnt available yet.
