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.

He had it from SLP I think...I know the car had several SLP mods and he mentioned it was from the time he bought it new it was in there...??

He kept it about a year and them bought something else.

I'll ask again but I know he didn't install it from what I can take from our talk.

At the expense of sounding incredibly Green ,one of the many questions on 'Options' that i need to ask before establishing my Full Spec list is this.
Is a Short Throw' a do-able option for a woman driver who will be using a 2ss in an urban environment on a daily basis,or is she likely to give me shit for getting an inappropriate option.
This is a need to know 'cos the car is my baby but work commitments mean we have to share!Goddamit.Any knowledge will be greatly appreciated,
Thanks from The U.K

The Hurst shifter is great for all drivers, male or female. there is no appreciable extra effort to operate the shifter, the distance you have to move the shifter to change gears is reduced, making for quicker gear changes. I had the Hurst shifter on my 02 SS and it worked flawlessly.

I agree that the Hurst would be great for all drivers - the effort would not be so great that only a strong guy could move it.

However, I'm not sure how you know that there will be no appreciable extra effort to shift with a Hurst short-throw. I have a Hurst short-throw on my 2005 Mustang GT, and it is probably twice as much effort as the stock shifter. It's borderline too much effort. Even after two years of use and being totally broken in, it's still not easy. I love it for the precision feel and total lack of slop, but wish it were a bit less effort. That said, it is unquestionably miles ahead of the stock shifter, which is rubbery in comparison.

I had a 1971 Olds 4-4-2 with a factory Hurst, and that thing was like butter. But it was no short-throw shifter - it was a long handle with plenty of leverage, and even on the Muncie M22 "rock crusher" tranny, you could shift it with your pinky.

Come on guys! If any of you have any DIY skills buy your shifter of choice and install it yourself. There is nothing better than getting to know your new machine by doing some of these simple upgrades yourself. A shifter install on a modern tranny is easy. Not only do you feel like a manly man after it's done, you'll probably save $175.

Shifters are pretty easy to install. Biggest issue is not getting grease on the interrior of you car...

My only concern with a brand new car would be does my installing it do anything to my warranty.

Oh no...

Here we go...

Anything you do will potentially void the warranty. Assuming you have a POS stealership that is looking for an excuse not to fix your car. The burden of proof is on them. So, yes, if you manage to botch the install of the shifter. Lets say you drop a screw or something down into the tranny while installing the shifter. And your tranny bites it. If the dealer ship can prove that you caused it by being careless. They won't fix it.

If its piece of mind that's most important to you then let the dealers do it.
