I think I'm going to contact MGW and see if they are planning to fab up a STS for the new Camaro.

EDIT: Just called MGW, and they WILL be making an MGW shifter for the new Camaro. Should be 4 months after production that they will have a product available. Since the 6 speed uses the TR6060, the same as the new Viper, it could be even sooner once they change a few minor parts.

Good news for me at least!

The Hurst shifter is an LPO option when placing your car order, but it will be dealer installed for no extra charge. If you buy it through the parts department you'll have to install it yourself or pay the dealer to install it.

Pardon me for being a complete noob in this category, but what does the MGW shifter have over the hurst? What makes it so special? I have never heard of this shifter and would like to know more about it. I don't wanna regret having the hurst if this one is better.

Somebody Please post a picture of the Hurst Short Throw Shifter. I have seen it somewhere with a Polished Black Knob that looks awesome! I have seen it shown with the regular white knob also. But somewhere there is a the black one pictured. If I order the STS will it be black the that?

Take a look at the threads for the SEMA cars. There are some nice photos there.

A friend of mine has a 2002 Camaro SS and said his Hurst shifter was a b!tch to shift and he swapped it for something else...is this the same shifter from then or a new design?

Either way I ordered it...I'll decide after I drive for a while if it's the shifter or him!

Your friend needs to hit the gym then. I had the Hurst on my 99TA, and yeah its a bit tough, but thats why you got a stick shift car, to shift it like a man!

The MGW for the C5s and C6s is just sex. I've tried one. It's insanely short and tight. It's, plain and simple, tits.

I still want to mount my Hurst polished stick and black Hurst ball in a Camaro though. Probably gonna take some fab work whenever, if ever I buy a Camaro.

Any time you shorten the throw you increase the amount of force needed to make the shift, it's simple leverage. This is one of those parts you should all buy and DIY though, SSK's are an easy install.

Did you friend put this on after market or did he buy it that way? If he did an after market what he probably did was put the bushing on the wrong side. It may be an error on the intruction sheet.

Myself, I had a Hurst Super Shifter in one of my 69's and loved it. I've never owned a 6 speed car before but I can image it will be as easy as a 15 speed electric gride in a Peterbilt.
