Hurst vs GM Performance short throw shifter

When I ordered my '13 SS the only option for a short throw shifter was the GM Performance. Why did they stop using Hurst, and is there really a difference?

I reckon the difference is over money and what GM was paying Hurst for the famous name.

The Hurst short-throw that was a factory option was a nice-shifter for sure...(I got one)...but come to find out, it's not like any other Hurst, no interchangeable parts, built uniquely for the Camaro...

My guess is the Chevy performance one offered now is basically the same, just not built by Hurst....

That's what I've heard. It just doesn't feel as solid as you'd expect it to.

Mentioned above I had the factory Hurst...I did, however, change to the Hurst Billet Plus shifter...That is shorter throw and "solid" feel for sure, and you can play around with different Hurst parts and knobs for the "look"...

...Don't know how it actually compares to the new GM Performance shifter, though....

I had a Hurst in my 12' SS and comparing it to the shifter in my 1LE, I prefer the current 1LE / ZL1 shifter. Maybe it's just me but I like the factory "performance" shifter. Not quite short throw but better than the standard factory offering. That being said dont get me wrong the Hurst was nice but then again there are a few other good options available too.

was really disapointed to find out my performance shifter was not the Hurst... guess they stopped this in 2013 with the introduction of Chevy's own shifter. They push it on you to keep the profits with them and not Hurst.

kinda sucks but the GM performnce shifter is good regardless

I'm certainly not complaining, I do like the feel. I was just thinking it would feel more "solid"? Btw, 1LEMayhem, your car looks amazing!

Unless you are racing, the stock shifter will work very nicely.

The factory 6-speed shifter is shaped like an improperly circumcised gorilla's third leg. It is an abomination before God and Man that with the 'throwback to first gen' styling cues, we get a shifter I'd expect to see in a sado-masochist's 1984 Lada Samara.

I have a proper chrome stalk, white ball hurst shifter ready to go...if I can simply get the time to install it

Yes, the optional short-throw shifter is the same as used in the 1LE and ZL1, and available from Chevrolet Performance.

I agree. I don't hate the shifter in mine as much as I hate that stupid knob. I'd like to meet the person who's hand fits that knob.

I don't know about the new GM shifter, but the Hurst that chevy put was 22% shorter throw then the stock shifter. The after market Billet Hurst shifter is 44% shorter throw then the stock shifter. I have the billet Hurst shifter and love it.

That's why I bought a cueball shift knob from that guy on here before he got banned for not being a vendor. Idk if I like the way the chrome stalk looks, it was nice in my Shelby GT but it's kind of weird in the Camaro. I'm pretty sure the Hurst lets you use the stock setup though.
