Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hi, I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and today we’re going to be taking a closer look at the Hurst competition plus shifter for all 2005-2010 Mustang GTs. Hurst is without a doubt the biggest name in shifters and has been ever since the late 60s when it was a favorite amongst drag racers everywhere. We’re going to be taking a closer look at this Hurst shifter but first, we’re going to take our 06 GT out and get a feel for the stock shifter, before we go installing our Hurst. Alright so we’re out here in our 06 GT before we install our Hurst competition shifter and honestly our stock shifter feels like what you’d think it’d feel like, it’s a stock shifter. The throws are kind of long, the actions are kind of sloppy but all in all it’s what you’d expect from a normal daily driver shifter from the factory. So with that said let’s get our car back to the shop, talk a little bit more about that Hurst shifter, and get it installed. Taking a closer look at this shifter itself, there’s no denying it’s a Hurst. We have that iconic name engraved on the chrome shift handle, and that white ball style knob that instantly gives it all away. As for the business side of things, we’re looking at a full steel construction, that, once you feel the weight of this thing, you know it’s ready to handle some hard shifts. Looks like we also have some high performance polyurethane bushings as well, which should really help in firming everything up. As for the performance side of things, the comp plus from Hurst is going to reduce your throw distance by up to 40%, making for much shorter and quicker throws. In addition to that, the beefed up components along with those poly bushings I mentioned earlier are really going to firm up the shifting experience, giving a much more positive feeling as you’re rolling through the gears. This is also going to get rid of some of that sloppiness you probably felt with your stock shifter. Installing this shifter from Hurst will take you about 2 hours and does require you to crawl around underneath the car a little bit, so just make sure you have your jack stands ready. Other than that though, this is a simple bolt on installation, that should really give you no problems whatsoever. Now that we have the comp plus bolted up on our 06 GT behind me, we’re going to get it out of the shop one more time and see how this shifter feels compared to stock. Getting back into the car for the second time after the Hurst has been installed, two things immediately jumped out at me, first the appearance. I just love the look of these Hurst shifters, I drove a 4 speed Muncie car back in high school, equipped with a big old Hurst shifter and I guess I get a little nostalgic every time I see another one, that’s because they haven’t really changed much over the years I mean they keep using the same design, and it works for them, it really does, it looks great in the interior. But enough about the looks, we’re all about performance here and this thing really performs. The throws are so short, I mean just slipping this thing into gear for the first time you can immediately tell this thing means business. Just driving a car casually here it’s nice, you can just leave your arm on the arm rest, slip the car into gear with your arm still on the arm rest, which is great for lazy drivers like myself, but when you really want to hammer it you can just muscle it into gear and this thing will do whatever you want it to. So overall I really dig the Hurst shifter this is a comp plus, not quite as firm as the Billet competition plus, that might just be because of their design, but I like it, it seems to go into gear a little easier than the Billet version. Definitely like it, definitely makes a great improvement over our stock shifter here on our GT, so be sure to check it out right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Improves Shifts. The Hurst 5-Speed Short Shifter gets rid of that sloppy feeling that many factory shifters have. This is the same style shifter that was used on the Shelby GT and Shelby GTH Mustangs. The Hurst Shifter includes a chrome shifter handle and a white shift knob with 5 speed logo.

Quality Construction. This GT Short Shifter was designed by the biggest name in the automotive industry "Hurst". The Hurst Shifter features a spherical bearing with unique shifter rod and OE main stamping to allow for shorter, faster shifts with a 40% throw reduction.

Application. This Hurst 5-Speed Short Shifter is designed to fit the 2005 through 2010 GT Mustangs with the TR-3650 Transmission. The Shift knob, shifter handle, and a full set of instructions are included.

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

If i were to buy this shifter will my stock boot work with it or will i have to modify it I would like it to look like a stock install and not have to modify my boot just to have the shifter wondering if their were anything i would need to get along with the shifter that would help achieve this thank you for your time

frankbullitt67

  • The stock boot is reused and not modified. Hurst includes a rubber piece that allows you to move the boot up and down to show as much of the shifter arm as you desire. They also include a zip that would allow you to completely hide the shift arm...although I'm not sure why anyone would want to hide that chrome. I'm sure you could always screw the stock shift knob back on as well. The Hurst shifter is a tiny bit taller though, but barely noticeable.

Shift Knob Height Increase? I am a tall guy (6'7") but I still fit quite well in my '07 mustang. I am wondering if there is any height increase in the shift knob over the stock one because I feel like it would make it much more awkward to shift. I am tall enough that when I sit my arm rests comfortably on the lid of the center console so a super tall shift knob would be really uncomfortable. Thanks!

Mango

  • Saw this before i installed mine so got some measurements, from the plastic console top(not the boot bezel) to the top of the stock knob is 3-5/8" in first and 4-1/4" in neutral, the Hurst is 5-3/4 in neutral and just a hair less in gear. Definitely taller, but with the throw being so short i find it more comfortable, i'm 6'5, and with my arm on the console its definitely more noticeable height wise but not really uncomfortable.

    Quality Product, Notchiness Takes Getting Used To

    The install was not bad, even using jack stands in my driveway. It did take a few hours but that's because my 'Stang has miles on it so all bolts are difficult to break loose. The first thing that I noticed when using the shifter on the street was that it is significantly more notchy than the stock shifter. However, it does have a tighter and more accurate feel. There is still a slight amount of slot but I don't notice it when driving. I was surprised that the shift knob was all plastic, nothing special. However, similar to the slop, I don't notice it while driving and the shifter is balanced despite the fact that the knob is not very weighty. I believe that this is because of the weight of the shifter arm - this appears and feels like quality metal. Overall, I am pleased with the shifter but I think the notchiness and quality of the shifter knob could be improved.

    Pretty clean

    Not a bad shifter. Definitely a significantly shorter throw. Shifting feels cleaner and kinda notchy in a good way. It's too stiff at first but it loosens up after a few days. The install was very simple but it was definitely a hassle- probably took me 2-3 hrs because I didn't drop the driveshaft. Overall a good purchase and I would buy again.

    Get rid of the factory shifter!

    I replaced the 5-speed shifter in my '08 Bullitt with this one and what a difference! It's like night and day. Throws are about 40% less than the factory shifter. The feel with this shifter is tight and firm not loose and easy like the factory shifter. The new shifter definitely makes the car feel more like a performance car, and I like grabbing a gear quicker! This should be a stock shifter in all GTs. When removing the old and installing the new shifter have someone in the car help you. Otherwise, you can easily scratch your console as you wiggle them about trying to get the old one out and the new one in by yourself. Hint: you might even take some of that blue painter's tape to protect the console during the shifter removal and new shifter install process. I jacked up the front of the car and chocked the rear wheels. For shifter removal, there is (1) bolt to remove at the front end of the shifter on the right side, use 13 mm wrench. (1) nut for the linkage to the tranny on the right side, use a 10 mm wrench and finally, (2) nuts, use 10mm socket with extension at the rear of the shifter. Save the nuts and bolt, for you will use tehm on the new shifter. You will need to use the (2) nylon bushings from your old shifter where the shifter connects to the tranny and insert those into the new shifter. Lubricate these bushings before installing the shifter. Next, remove the metal bushing from the rear of the old shifter by using a std. screwdriver to gently pry loose. Install the metal on the new shifter at the same location. Hint: Make sure it's installed in the same orientation as the old shifter. You will appreciate the difference this shifter makes! It took me 1.5 hours by myself. Good luck.

    This Shifter Rocks!

    This shifter is the best shifter out there for the S197. Its super crisp, clean and so short. Throws are much cleaner now. There isnt really much excess noise but there is a definite "snap" and you slide into gear. Quite satisfying I think. It might take a little getting used to if you have been driving with a stock shifter for some time. Install was simple. Took less than 2 hours by myself, with no rush. I jacked the car up front axle first then the rear and was able to get the stock shifter out without having to remove the drive shaft. I did this by leaving the car in neatral (dont forget your chock blocks!) and spinning the driveshaft which sort of spun the shift our of place after it was unbolted. Very simple. You wont regret this upgrade. My only Complaint is that the shift lever rubs on the boot in 1st and 2nd. This can be adjusted though. very happy with the product. I recommend it to anybody.

    So firm!

    I never write reviews, even though I've bought countless of parts from AM for the past 4 years I rarely write. BUT I was so happy with this shifter that I just had to share! Basicly this thing is AWESOME, the shifting vibrations are gone! No rattles, nothing! Shifting is so effortless and continuous I love it. Installation was easy! A little cramped without a lift but not bad at all. ( LET your exhaust cool down!) It took me slightly less then 2 hours to install, but that's JUST ME, I'm extremely tedious and strict about things like this and I followed the instructions to the last tiny letter. How ever it's super easy can definitely be done in an hour or less. I did find out how ever while under there that my shift to transmission linkage ab was loose, which is why every time i hit a bump my shifter assembly shook around, with the HURST shifter that was GONE! so smooth and firm, makes the car so much easier and FUN to drive, could not have been any happier. AM as always the BEST customer service and quality! Thank you!

    Hurst equals Quality!

    This Hurst shift is Amazing! Shifting is a lot better now and the reduced throw is perfect. I would say it reduced the throw about 40-50% This shifter is notchy allowing you to know your in gear. Great product. If you want a less of notchy feel grease where the shifter connects to the transmission linkage.

    Red, White, & Cruise

    I've always used ramps to get under my cars but with my '06 Mustang GT it couldn't be done due to the front bumper sitting so low. This was the only trouble in had as I had to use a jack and blocks. I'm a "shade tree" mechanic but I have experience pulling engines and rebuilding them. There are four bolts holding the shifter in which took about an hour and a half to remove and replace the Hurst shifter. As for the product, I'm very pleased with it's performance. Very tight pattern, no more slop as in the original shifter. No noise or vibration!! The old school look really sets well with my black interior. You'll never miss third gear again since it nearly does it's thing without you having to move the shifter over to the middle if the H pattern to hit that gear. Definitely worth squeezing my fat ass under the car to do it myself!

    Hurst Competition Plus Shifter - TR-3650 (05-09 GT)

    Great first mod. I love the feel of the classic Hurst shifter. Taller shifter with shorter throw makes it much better and lets you hammer it into gear. Mine is smooth. No vibrations. The rubber gasket between shifter handle and shifter makes the difference. Super easy to install. Took about 30 minutes. Hardest part is putting the inner boot back on. Wouldn't change anything.

    Great shifter

    I put off getting an aftermarket shifter for my 2005 Saleen S281 because saleen actually modifies the throw of the OEM shifter so that it is shorter, but after breaking down and getting this hurst shifter, I wish I had done it sooner, besides looking cool like a mustang shift arm and Hurst ball should, it feels and works great. Felt like a race car out of the box. Shorter more notchy and certain feel. Love it. Wasnt too hard to get the shifter into or out of the car. Great price made my mind up finally.

    Hurst Short Throw Shifter

    Wtih the help of a friend and a lift we changed out the shifter in about 30-45 minutes. The most complicated thing was getting out the old shifter, which was not hard to do but took awhile to get it into the correct angle to be removed. Now, a month later, everything is working great. This shifter makes a dramatic improvement over the feel of the stock shifter. The throw is shorter but I like how it locks into gear and its easier to hit the gears. Its a great buy. It comes with the white Hurst ball which does not match a single thing in the car, so I later purchased a black on. That is probably by design from Hurst to sell another shifter handle.

    Awesome Shifter! Exceeds stock Shifter!

    Removal of the stock shifter and installation of the Hurst sifter was very well illustrated and described in the included instructions. After I removed the stock shifter and compared it to the Hurst Competition Plus Shifter on my workbench, the most obvious difference was the lack of “slop” in the Hurst Stick compared to the stock. My Mustang GT is a 2010 with 13,000 miles, “no way that stock shifter had worn that much!” I installed this shifter with no help in around 2 ½ hours. However it did take a little “try and try again” then a short “walk away” to get the assembly through the opening in the “transmission hump”. Ya just got to find the “sweet spot”. After that all went well. I toped the Hurst Shifter with my “real 8 ball” shifter knob (see video) which I made in 1979 (ever try to drill a hole in pool ball?) for my first Hurst Shifter that I put in my ’71 Plymouth. Out for a test drive and it was awesome, smooth, fast solid & memories from my younger days…”The 8 ball” has found its home once again on a Hurst Shifter and the best ride I have ever owned!

    Simple install with ratchet box wrenches.

    Fast and self explanatory install. Smothered in lithium grease to reduce the dreaded potential for vibration. Vibrates ONLY in high RPM. Throws are crisp. Short. Feels hard and requires more effort for about 200 miles then is smooth with that affirmative notchiness many short shifters have which I prefer. Worth every penny. Hour and a half tops.
