Had mine installed at my local trans shop for $150.00. What a difference! Much shorter thro obviously and the shifts are smoother. Haven't had a chance to air it out to see the difference under a hard run but so far so good!

Funny, so I called two different Chevrolet Dealerships today and asked them about install and if it would void the warranty. Both dealerships said it would not void the warranty unless they could prove the shifter caused damage. But they said it would be highly unlikely. Then just one of them said they would install it. He quoted me labor rates of $98 an hour, he spoke to his tech and they told him it would take about an hour and a half, so about $150.

I had called a different Chevrolet dealership two days ago and they told me that it would void the warranty on the trans. Man, who do you trust? It's almost like you gotta get it in writing.

Then I called a local AAMCO Transmission shop. This guy was totally stoked to get his hands on a "NEW CAMARO"...his enthusiasm was almost scary. But he also quoted around $150, but no more than $200.

One one side I want to take it to a dealer because they might have more knowledge of cracking the console open, but on the other hand a transmission specialty shop seems like they'd know more about installing this sort of thing.

I think maybe I'm just making too big of a deal over nothing. Anyway. I can't wait to get it installed.

I paid a 100 bucks total, both of those are a little high might just be your area. I do alot of business with place that did mine. $98 an hour is crazy expensive though.

Yeah $98 an hour seems to be the going rate because AAMCO and Gus Paulos Chevrolet both quoted me this. The more I look at this install other than getting my fat a*** under the car I think I could do it.....

Anyone hearing a rattling sound coming from the shifter? I just installed it and the faster I accelerate, the rattling gets louder.

the hurst is noisy. I havent got it on the camaro yet but i had it on my 2007 C6 and it was pretty noise. I put dynamat in as many places as I could and it seemed to help. It is just the nature of the beast. You get used to it. Try to dynamat your console and anywhere you can near the shifter.

I installed mine today it took about 1.5 hours with my 4 year old daughter bugging (helping) me in my driveway on ramps and jack stands , for me the hardest part was getting the bottom dust boot back on but not that bad . I do get some noise from the shifter buy it's all good .

Thanks Nick

make sure you have the blue loctite on the bolts and if needed put some lithium grease down in the bearing.. that will also help. it is normal to hear a bit more noise coming thru the trans due to vibration etc. this is because there is less vibration dampening with the new shifter

I installed mine tonight- took about 1 1/2 hours, long enough for the wife to watch a movie. Thoughts:

The shifter sounds more mechanical- you can hear the thing going into gear, so it is much louder than the stock shifter.

The shifts are much quicker- I mean a LOT quicker.

It is VERY old school- if you like the quiet stock shifter, you won't like this one.

My wife doesn't like the noise from the Hurst shifter- which means it's perfect!
