Default Hurst Shifter

Has anyone invested in the Hurst reduced throw shifter? Does it really make an improvement? How difficult is it to install? Finally, is it worth the price?

I just bought one used. The shift claims to be 30% shorter and its close if not at it. The only complaint is that the shift position is further forward than I would like but not a big deal to get used to. The feel is much better, it has a more positive feel on the shifts.

The install was pretty easy, the hardest part was removing the clips that retain the shift cables in the shifter housing but that was only awkward because of the lack of room around them.

The price new is pretty steep for what it is IMO so unless your in a rush watch the sites for something to come up.

All in all no regrets. Next on the wish list, strut brace and a useful set of sway bars.

ChromeCruiser, if you decide to get one, how about some pics of the install process?

Read this article:

Has pictures and pretty much explains the installation process. I would recommend buying "Booger Bushings" and install them while you have everything apart. Booger Bushings will tighten up the shifts for Stock, Mopar, Hurst, or B&M short shifters.

It\'s nice to be important, but it\'s more important to be nice.

the Hurst is worth the work, and IMHO the price.
I bought mine from Jegs, good total shipped price, excellent service.

I would recommend tracking down and installing the Booger Bushings at the same time.
I just tell anyone who asks that "PT" stands for "Plymouth's Tombstone"
