3 Stars   Nice upgrade but comes at a cost.

Image uploaded by Jeremey R. This shifter certainly firmed up the shifts, but it does have its drawbacks. Here is my review after about 3mo/800 miles.

First the PROS: Nice feel, firm positive shifts, relatively easy install, major coolness factor with the old-school looks!
CONS: Increased noise/rattles, shifter arm bolts keep coming loose.

After trying various configurations with the rubber isolators I have determined that the best "feel" is using only 1 isolator. If you use both of them, it just gives it a "squishy" feeling that I didn't like. The added noise is pretty annoying. There is increased road noise that present at all speeds (which was expected.) 2.) Under moderate/heavy accelleration, especially in 2nd and 3rd gears, there is a rattle that drives you crazy. I have read several forums regarding this and tried some of the resolutions and this is where I landed. Used Teflon Tape thread sealer on the shifter arm mounting screws and on the threads for the shift ball and add some lithium grease around the pivot ball. The noise is still present but the added lubrication and padding from the Teflon tape help reduce some of it. I am also hoping that the Teflon will help keep the arm bolts in place, if not, I'll have to add some Loc-Tite or different lock washers.

All in all, for me, the firmer shifting and the cool looks outweigh the cons of the added noise. Whether or not I'd recommend this, I'm not sure. I would suggest to others to research other shifter brands (for the noise factor) prior to purchasing this one.

5 Stars   Goodbye sloppy stock shifter!

Image uploaded by Scott R. This Hurst Billet shifter really tightened up the shift feel in my '05 GT and the throw is considerably shorter. This shifter is a bit notchy but that is to be expected with any aftermarket performance shifter. I added some sound deadening material under the center console when I installed the shifter and it is now quieter than stock, no noise or rattle.

I would definitely recommend this shifter to anyone looking for an upgrade from their vague stock shifter.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Just installed this shifter on my 2006 GT a couple of days ago just in time for the drag strip, it was a little more notchy than I had expected but I absolutely love it. Very short crisp shifts and you don't even have to move your arm it can stay on the console and just flick your wrist to shift! Great product highly recommend!

Much better than stock, installed in about an hour. Took some finesse to get the old one out and the new one in but what a difference. Should have done this along time ago.

Bought the Hurst shifter due to price, on the fence about it, the throws are short and precise, but this thing vibrates and makes all sort of noise. Shop around
