Default Hurst shifter review

I got my Hurst performance shifter installed and am extremely happy with the results. The shifts are a lot shorter and much more precise. The shifter was very stiff the first day, but the more I use it the better it feels. This was a great addition and well worth the price.

I was also going to get the MRT axle back, but when I stopped by my local shop they offered to install the Magnaflow axle back for $300 so I'm getting that instead. I should have it on the car next week and can't wait to hear and feel the difference.

Stock boot and Hurst cue ball ****.

I'll try and post a pic when the sun comes out.

I hated the stock shift **** and replaced it when I first got the car with the Rousch billet ****.

If anyone wants the Rousch **** let me know as I will sell it cheap.

Here's a pic of the old Rousch ****.

It's a great addition isn't it? I love mine, you might want to try the Hurst Tee handle, it feels a lot better than the round one IMO.

I like the Idea of the shift stops they take a litttle tweaking to get just right, but it's supposed to keep you from damaging the linkage when you start banging the gears really hard and fast which seems very likely given the shorter throws.

And also for your consideration I have a chrome T handle shifter and when the suns out that handle gets to be about two thousand degrees and just the opposite in a cold day (Ever seen "A Christmas Story"?) either way I feel like I lose acouple layers of skin when ever I forget. I keep a microfiber polishing cloth in the console just in case.

Shift stops weren't an option when I got mine.

I got mine new on E-bay. It was just under $160 with free shipping.

How much did it cost you to get it installed?

I'm also thinking of getting one, also, where would I take it to get it installed?

thanks
