Any of you guys running a hurst short throw?

I know it's in the wrong section but I want to ask my fellow LFXers if any of you guys are running the Hurst short throw shifter and what you think of it? I also know this topic has been beat to but I wanna ask the small group that has kinda bonded together these last few weeks with all our mods

I have read the OEM short throw is not great. If you actually buy the short throw kit from Hurst, its a lot better. But if you want the best...MGW.

MGW is what Im going with

Well I was gonna go with hurst because it matches my shift handle. I'll also do the upgraded bushing kit for sure. But if I find a good deal on a mgw then I'd def jump on it.

Nice thing about amazon open box is it is generally just damaged packaging...and if you arent happy with it, Amazon has a no questions asked return policy on Open Box stuff. I buy a LOT of stuff that way.

Forgot to mention that only the v8 shift pattern on the ball comes with the kit. You need to call hurst and they will send the v6 patterned one.

I have to call the Hurst three times, can't remember why, but I think the v6 pattern is make to order. You have to remove the rubber boot for the spring access. install the isolator kit between the stick and base (wrap it around the two bolts) to reduce rattle.

For the money, the Hurst works just fine. If you go with the Hurst, make sure you get the bushing set.
