Maybe since Hurst came out with one on their own they nixed it. It's better anyway. Shorter throw. Love mine!

That's what I figured was going on since Hurst came out with one on their own first.

Its "discontinued" from ordering thru the system as GM doesn't want to accept any orders for a part that's getting a redesign per their request!. It is not "disscontinued" in terms of it will never be coming...it will be !

Autobot, I know you are trying to be helpful, but honestly, I would believe SubZero05 over the customer service rep at GM parts direct.

Still waiting for subzero05 to check into it.

I hope the GM customer service is wrong.

here is what I know. GM and Hurst are still testing the "revised" unit per the GM request. The engineering teams of GM holden and North Am. and Hurst are making some O-ring changes to the shifter , as well as creating a "Knob" with the Hurst logo . This project is DEFINATELY not discontinued, its just under a re-work still!..
