Nice vid. I love the hurst shifter in my 02 v6 camaro. Only complaint was the plastic shift knob broke after 3 days.

yes that is a very short throw. very impressive. on my 02 z28 i have the factory hurst w/ a short stick and it is nice. been wanting to get the hurst billet. but havnt seen n e real videos like this for a 4th gen.

i heard that the 5th gen requires a lil bit more effort in the shifts, that didnt look like there was much effort on those shifts lol.

I added the Hurst shifter and bought the "Pistol Grip" handle. There are 2 main problems with the Pistol Grip. 1 : It is too tall. It is 4 3/8th inches from base to top so the short throw is lost due to the height. And #2 problem is that the threaded adaptors that come with it do not fit (too big diameter) the threads on the chrome shifter. I am sending it back for a refund. The white ball looks good as my car is black with the inferno orange interior and the contrast is nice. A black ball or the black billet ball would also look good.
IMO rethink the "Pistol Grip".

Very nice Killer, I like the shift from 2nd to 3rd with the Hurst compared to stock.

There are aftermarket shifter balls out there for $46. You get black ball with Hurst embossed on both sides a new Hurst chrome handle and another boot retainer.

We installed two Hursts in little under 3 hours. The first install (mine) took 2 hours. The second one took 45 minutes. Had to take a 15 minute union break though.

The throw is awesome! The sound and feel, equally awesome.

My only wish was to have it installed and coded on invoice (as I had originally ordered) from the factory. But I did have fun bonding and getting close to her.

I like the movement some, but not the ball.

In my 4th Gen I had the Pro 5.0. That thing was bad ass. It had adjustable stops and smooth motion. It did have gear noise though as since it was my wifes DD, she wasnt so happy. When I got my 3rd 4th Gen I pretty much had it all figured out, I just got me a Lous Short Stick for the stock shifter and all was well. Not as smooth, but shorter and quiter and a happier wife.
Anyone have any experience with LSS on the 5th gens?

Hurst

I opted to keep the stock boot, a little noise, but not much. I love it.

The V6 shift pattern is different, do hurst have the correct pattern on the white ball for V6?

The Hurst Billet/Plus is awesome… The shifts are shorter and there is definitely a more positive feel. As you can see by the video, it does not take much effort to shift through all the gears. There is some gear noise mostly during spirited driving; Cough Cough WOT Cough. At 18 and 40 seconds in the video you can hear some of the gear noise I’m talking about (kind of sounds like a light rattle and it's louder at WOT). The noise is easily snuffed out with the proper placement of Dynamat. As for the clicking noise when you shift, I don’t even notice it…….same with the gear noise. There are many Hurst and universal shifter knobs that fit so your customization is unlimited. I bought the Hurst for many reasons but I would have to say the performance with its “Old School” looks is two of the biggest and they are second to none. The Hurst shifter is worth every Camaro owner’s hard earned cash!

As a side note: There are many aftermarket companies making the same parts for are beloved Camaros. I strongly suggest you find the parts you like that fit your style and performance wants/needs. It’s as easy as asking a “Camaro Comrade” who has the part installed, if you can check it out on their ride.

I am impressed. I would like to see a video of some other shifters...I do like the drastic improvement in throw.

Also I am personally waiting to see if B&M comes up with something. I will be pestering them all at SEMA
