Hurst Billet/Plus 2 shifter (3916030)

Hello everyone ,

One of my first few mods was to have a Hurst short throw shifter installed. While there is nothing wrong (physically or ergonomic) with the original shifter, I wanted the change for aesthetics. At 1,600mi, I tried to find a local dealer to install and few left me with a warm & fuzzy feeling considering I would be their fist install ... so I called a few local shops and found a place that has installed a few (Tillman Speed) for a reasonable price.

Question

Now I need some feedback on placement of the Hurst Equipped Emblem (1361000). I am trying to decide whether to place the emblem on the dash, the rear deck lid or on both fenders above/below the "CAMARO" lettering... maybe even a combo of the previously listed.

Yes....it's definately taller than the stock shifter. I had a Hurst for about a week in my car. The height was a little noticable but not that bad at all. Giving it more height like that made it easier for a shorter throw. I also like the feel of the round ball in my hand.

Beyond that the Hurst wasn't for me. I ended up with MGW and love it. Not bashing the Hurst at all. It's just like other mods....some people are going to like it and others aren't. I just fell into the "Don't Like" category.

How hard was it to remove the SS and the bowtie on the back?

I for one like the Hurst. And since I wound up with the one that Caverman took out, I'm glad he didn't!

I love the look of the Hurst shifter. I would put the emblem on the decklid, opposite of where the SS emblem would be.

I would definitely advertize the shifter because of the Hurst reputation and for memories... Personally, I would place it on the dash passenger side like showed here on this pic.

Shifter looks great! I love my hurst in my Cobalt!

I had that hurst badge on my cobalt for about 9 months and the badge looked great new but began to fall apart. The paint started to peel and crack, which led me to remove the badge.

I'd vote for mounting inside the car if possible!

2SSRS, where did you get the SS emblem for your rear deck lid? Do you have the front one as well? Sure looks good, way better than the bow tie!!!
