Installed mine this morning in less than a hour without a hitch! All I can say is WOW this thing is awesome. It feels so much more precise than the sloppy stock shifter. Good job on this one Dave!

Thanks
Don't know what measurements your looking for But it's better than the Hurst

Not true stevo. It will fit on the V6 6 spd tranny. I'm sure Barton Ind. will chime in when he reads your thread. I will be ordering mine right after Christmas. Waiting to see if I will be broke lol.

I cant decide which i like better, the black ball, or the pistol grip, I keep switching them every week.. its fun to go back and forth, it gives the car a different feel each week.

Any body else find themselves going back and forth, just to change things up?

Hey Black10, I saw some cool pedals at PepBoys that would match your shift handle!

HEADS-UP V-6 owner: This job took me 2-3 hours. At step #10/26 "Pull firmly down on the shifter assembly to remove from the car" I could not do this. On step #11 (on the next page) a belated cryptic message was the clue:

"NOTE: V6 owners can be permantly remove the centering springs or they can reposition them and reuse them depending upon the drivers (sp) preference."
Which sounded like something I also read in the Hurst instruction manual.

What was left unsaid was that you must remove the springs and to get to it you must remove the dust boot - easy off but not so easy to put back on because aligning of the boot's rubber spikes into the small holes of the carrier was VERY hard. I had to remove these springs before the old shifter could be removed. Then the new shifter was a VERY tight fit and required that I use longer bolts than stock to position screw and guide the new shifter assembly into the housing. Next, whether to keep the springs or not. I choose to keep them but did not like the fact that the sharp threads of the new shaft were cutting into the springs. The stock shifter did not have threads in contact with the springs. I experimented with a plastic sleeve but discarded it as it seemed to impede full articulation of the shifter. I fully expect that the springs will get diced up with use. I like the shifter and it seem to work fine after install- just more hassle than expected.

Steve I sent you a PM.

I sincerely apologize and Steve is correct about the directions for the V6. I do need to add in there that the centering springs need to be removed prior to removing the factory shifter from the car. When doing the directions we based everything off of the
SS cars and forgot to put that in there.

Stevo, thanks for the warning. I received my shifter but wasn't planning to do the install until next week. Thanks again for the heads up.
