That does look like a nice unit. Would like to hear how it works from anyone who has changed over.

We've got one in our 2010. It's definitely worth the upgrade. It's got a nice the throw and length is perfect in my opinion.

Now about that bushing...what is it made of? Do you sell a heavy duty replacement?
Looks exactly like the Hurst bushing that needs the upgrade pit pack for heavier one.
Let me know something please.. I really am digging that shifter!

Interesting proposition. Can you quote the cost of just a lever/ball? Also, I think that explains why I've been seeing so many Hurst lever/balls for sale

I can't believe you charge people for a better bushing!

we are currently out sourcing the bronze bushing kit and are just passing along cost... we will soon be manufacturing in house and hopefully include it in the kit... our cost is 39.00 plus shipping so we are passing this upgrade along with no profit.... Hurst offers there upgrade bronze kit (pit pack) for 53.00
To be honest up until yesterday we have not had a request for it, and reason behind the teflon bushing is to reduce frequencies transmitted through the shifter. The bronze kit is race/ performance oriented, gives a firmer feel but also will transmit a little bit more vibration through the shifter like any thing else that's solid mounted..
I hope this clarifies your concern for the additional upgrade to the bronze bushing kit, we strive to be the best at what we do and accommodate the masses the best we can.
