Hey everybody, Dave here from AmericanMuscle, and today I have the Hurst short throw shifter designed to fit the new GT and V6 manual Mustangs. The name Hurst should remind you of quality and this item is no exception. Hurst used billet aluminum and stainless steel parts to make sure this is not going to break down while youíre using your car. Some of the neat features that come with this Hurst short throw shifter, you have the option of the arm that comes with it and the Hurst shift ball, or the additional black replacement arm that allows you to use different thread pattern shift knobs. The other nice thing Hurst includes is a red LED light, you can wire this in if you like so that you know when youíre in reverse, itíll illuminate, showing you reverse, and not first gear, seeing as theyíre quite close together on these, this is a handy feature to have. First things first though, letís get a stock run, with the stock parts on the car, and see what that feels like. Well, under normal conditions, honestly it feels like itís a relatively far throw even compared to other stock shifters, itís comfortable, thatís the word I would give it, comfortable. After a couple of miles of driving, hereís my honest opinion, itís a fine shifter, for those who are driving daily through traffic and whatnot. But for me, and for a lot of enthusiasts out there, it lacks that oomph and that quick shift between gears, it takes so long. Alright, so weíre back here after our stock drive with our Hurst short throw shifter ready to go in the car. Before we install it I want to give you a couple of the key features Iíll be looking for when I drive this now. The Hurst short throw shifter does a few things, it reduces the amount of travel by 27% between gears, now thatís huge compared to stock, the other thing Iíll be looking for, second to third gear can sometimes be a little difficult with some of the Mustangs. With this part, it should clean it up so that second to third gear is a clean, crisp quick shift, just like the rest. So letís go ahead and get this part installed, take it back on the street, and see what we think. So here we are in our 2011 manual 50 with our Hurst short throw shifter. Now, something I noticed right away like some of the others, itís very low to the console, I like that, it gives it a very sleek look. Something else Iím figuring out really quick, it has a really short throw, I happen to like that, it suits my aggressive driving style, as I drive through the back streets here I donít really feel any drivability issues, seems like I can find my gears without much issue. This part comes with a red LED light, youíre able to wire it up if you like into your reverse setting, so that when you do put it in reverse, the light pops on, indicating youíre in reverse, and not first gear. Hereís why this is important for this item: the Hurst shifter does not utilize the reverse lock out that the factory has installed, meaning you can easily be in reverse, thinking youíre in first. Well, road test complete, the Hurst short throw shifter was installed on our 2011 Mustang, and hereís what I have to say: it certainly reduces the amount of distance between shifts, and definitely makes your shifting faster, once you get used to it. The Hurst shifter utilizes its own reverse design without a reverse lockout, for example, taking off in a traffic or in a parking lot, just make sure youíre in first gear, third and reverse seem awful close sometimes. Once you get past how to drive with this shift, I think youíll be happily impressed with the reduction in distance between gears. Once you figure that out, itís a good product I certainly recommend it, just take your time.

Improves Shifts. Get rid of that sloppy feeling that many stock factory Mustang shifters have with a Hurst Billet Plus 2 Shifter. The Hurst shifter features a high ratio pivot mechanism for quicker, shorter throws and a polymide pivot cup to reduce jarring vibrations.

Improves Reverse Lock-out. The Hurst Billet Plus 2 Shifter not only improves your driving pleasure, but it also features an integrated adjustable reverse lock-out detent that eliminates the clunky OEM push-down style lock-out for easier use. Includes a Red LED light which ensures you are actually in Reverse rather than 1st gear.

Hurst Quality. The Hurst shifter is sturdily constructed from CNC machined 6061 T-6 billet aluminum for strength, to provide more precise and positive feed back when banging through all six gears.

Application. This Hurst Billet Plus 2 shifter is designed for the 2011 to 2014 and newer V6 and GT Mustangs equipped with the MT-82 manual 6 speed transmission. Includes chrome Hurst handle, white Hurst shift knob and shift boot grommet.

Technical Note. This Hurst shifter includes a shift knob and handle with a unique thread pattern to Hurst. The stock factory Mustang shift knob (and aftermarket knobs) will not fit this Hurst shifter.
