TRANSCRIPT

Hi Iím Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is our breakdown of the Hurst Billet competition plus shifter fitting all 2005-2010 Mustang GTs. In a moment, weíre going to take a closer look at this Hurst, but before we do, weíre going to take our 07 GT out and get a feel for the stock shifter now before we install our new shifter, just so I can do a proper comparison. Before we really get into detail about the Hurst shifter, and actually get it installed, weíre out here in our 07 GT now just to get a feel for the stock shifter. I donít know if itís because Iíve driven this car a lot over time or maybe itís just because Iíve gotten used to this shifter, but now that Iím really paying attention to it, itís pretty awful, I mean very sloppy, even when youíre in gear, thereís a lot of movement in the shifter, and when changing gears you really donít know sometimes what gear youíre going into. My opinion, Ford really got it right with the 11,12,13 Mustangs, especially the 6 speeds, I mean they just feel awesome to drive, theyíre very tight. Now this, our 07 is a far cry from that, I donít know if thatís a function of it just being a few years older, maybe things just tend to loosen up over time, whatever the reason, it definitely could use a little help. So with that said, letís get our car back to the shop, talk a little bit more about the Hurst shifter, and get it installed. So as we take a closer look at this shifter, thereís no question itís a Hurst, we have that iconic name engraved on the shift handle just like itís been for decades, and we also see that white ball style shift knob also bearing the Hurst logo, as well as that 5 speed shift pattern. The difference between this shifter and the standard competition plus is in the name Ė billet. The entire base of this Hurst shifter is constructed from 100% T-6 Billet aluminum, and features this I-beam design which pretty much makes this shifter bulletproof. In addition to the quality construction, the Hurst Billet comp plus will also reduce your throws by up to 30%, leading to quicker, more precise shifts. This shifter also features a unique shifter rod design, along with these polyurethane bushings and spherical bearings which overall is going to take all the sloppiness out of this shifter. Getting the Hurst installed will require you to do some work both inside the car and underneath, therefore just leave yourself about 2 hours to get everything bolted up. If you donít have the luxury of using a lift, just make sure you have your jack stands or ramps ready before you get started. Now that we have our Billet competition plus bolted up, letís take our GT out for another spin and see how it feels rolling through the gears. So weíre back out on the street in our 07 GT with the Hurst Billet competition plus shifter installed, and my initial reaction is a good one, the shifter feels great, the throws are nice and short, and nice and crisp as well, which I love, I mean some people might call it notchy, I really dig it. Second, it sits a little higher up than the stock shifter used to which I really like, you can leave your arm on the arm rest and literally just shift gears by flicking your wrist. Finally the looks, I mean it looks great itís a great addition to any interior, itís got a really cool retro vibe going on, the chrome lever with that iconic white ball, itís an awesome shifter all around. So that pretty much wraps it up for the Billet competition plus shifter from Hurst for the 05-2010 Mustang which you can find right here at AmericanMuscle.com
