Hurst does have a kit for the AY6 manual transmission.

Yes, same Hurst shifter that goes on the V8 cars fits the V6 cars. When you buy the kit the shift pattern has the Reverse up and to the right (SS cars). You need to buy an aftermarket ball with it on the left side or get a plain ball.

I love my Hurst shifter it was one of the first mods I did on my LS. The install was a bit of a pain because of the centering springs which I guess are not on the V8 and they don't give instructions for the V6 so I had to just figure it out. Just recently put on a t handle but no pics yet.

Frank, I've got the shifter, didn't bother with pics 'cause I kept the stock knob. Shouldn't void your warranty (didn't at my dealership) cause you're only changing the stick itself. I love it!

FYI: They will send you a v6 shift pattern ball for free.

Anyone know if there's a DIY video for the V6 Hurst shifter install including the 'centering ring" that's mentioned?

Got it done......looks awesome, the centering rings were difficult to figure out at first, but after taking the upper rubber boot off, we figured it out. It's awesome so far, but I need to put some miles on it. We used the Dynomat, and I don't hear rattling, but I hear a whine now.......almost sounds like a supercharger...........I wish

Not sure........mine is for the retro look.........my plan is to make my car look more like the Gen 1 Camaro........houndstooth interior is expensive though. Shifter feels notchy so far..........

I didn't make a vid, nor could I find one, but I didn't look too hard. Basically just pull up the upper boot so you can see what you're doing an pry the springs open, I used A small screwdriver.

If a person has a helper below to jiggle the shifter and a person above with 2 screwdrivers to probe and pry the springs apart it's much easier. Taking the boot off is the hard way because getting that boot back on was a bitch.

I was worried I'd have trouble with the upper hoot, hut surprisingly, we got it back on in less than 5 mins. One of us in the car, one below. One guy lines up the nipples, the other pulls them through. I found it tougher to screw around in the boot lol.

Just finished installing the Hurst Shifter on my V6 and it was a pain in the ...!!! The centering ring was the easy part it was the Springs that sucked. Wish i had a second set of hand to video the whole experience! So far not bad just got really good with the stock shifter no i have to get used to this one!! Overall solid upgrade though

dont know if this would help but had mine install by a dealer and they did not install the spring back because it was optional and it would not center correct took it back and they put a new spring in and now it centers perfect.
