Short throw shifter?

I was wondering if anybody has installed a short throw shifter in their camaro.I was looking on ebay and they have some for like 25 bucks and that sounded like its either too good to be true or they just don't work good or make a difference.Tell me what you guys think?

They do make a difference, but that price sounds too good to be true.

Also, I've never heard of that brand. I'd be wary.

For $25 I'd be a little skeptical.

I did change the stock shifter in my '99 SS to a PRO 5.O with a Lou's Short Stick and I love it! The action is alot shorter and more positive.

Hurst Billet/Plus Shifters incorporate a high ratio pivot mechanism for reduced shifter throw and are sturdily constructed for a more positive precise feel when shifting. Self centering alignment improves 2nd to 3rd up-shift gear changes to reduce the chance of “missed shifts”. Patented adjustable bias spring loads on most models allow stick tension to be tailored to drivers preference. Dedicated applications assure a custom fit and eliminate any vehicle modifications for ease of installation.

• CNC machined 6061 T-6 BILLET ALUMINUM base and stop collar
• Heat treated BILLET STEEL gear selector for ultimate strength
• High strength steel stick. NOT A CASTING!
• Adjustable positive gear stops to help prevent internal transmission damage
• Stainless steel rotating pivot insures smooth shifting and reduced wear
• Polymide pivot cup reduces stick vibration and noise transfer
• Self centering alignment for improved 2nd to 3rd upshift gear changes
• Patented adjustable bias spring load for ease of operation
• Exclusive oil control seal, on most models, to eliminate trans fluid loss and protect against contamination Now comes with the classic Hurst Chrome Stick!

Application: Fits '83-'92 V6 & V8 Camaro & Firebird, '93-02 V6 Camaro & Firebird

check out the billet plus shifter from Hurst. It is around $200, but the results are awesome. We just installed one in my dad 2000 Z28 and one in my 1997 SS. They are worth every penny. $25 looks like a very crappy one that will probably break.
