Does this come with a shift boot? Will a replacement leather shift boot come with the kit? If so, is it high quality leather or the stock pleather? If not, can you reuse your stock boot on this shift kit? Or is it standard to simply have the rubber shift boot instead of a leather one, when the Hurst kit is installed?


  • reuse stock boot as this does not come with one. What you see in the stock picture is what you get.

Can you switch out the shifter handle???


  • The Hurst Chrome Billet Plus Shifter does have a removable shifter handle, although not all shifter handles will fit through the lower boot of this shifter.

Quick question for anyone who has owned this shifter. Mine was installed today and it seems that where the stock shifter was in third is now where the hurst shifter is in first?? Maybe it was installed incorrectly or that's just the way it is. I also thought the throw would be shorter to? Does anyone have any ideas??


What's the difference between this and the other hurst competition shifter you guys offer? Also will this fit a 1990 mustang GT and are any accessories or special installation needed?


What's the zip tie for?


  • The Hurst Chrome Billet Plus Shifter comes with a zip tie or plastic tie strap that is used to secure the bottom of the rubber dust boot over the aluminum stop collar.

Would this shifter fit a 2004 Mustang GT?.


  • This Hurst Chrome Billet Plus Shifter is designed for the t5/t45 transmissions in the early 2001 models and earlier. The 2004 GT uses a TR-3650, and the correct Hurst Billet Plus Shifter, would be Item 24302. I have attached the link below for the correct shifter for your vehicle.

    hurst shifter

    The installation is pretty easy you just have to take your time with it and it will go smoothly. Also the gasket has a top and bottom to it, the bolts wont go in through the base of the shifter if it's on upside down. And make sure the stopping screws are in the right spots, I thought mine were but when I went for a test drive it wouldn't go into first so I had to adjust them again. Overall i'm very satisfied with the shifter it gives a very clean feeling when you're flying threw the gears unlike the slopping stock feeling.

    Hurst Chrome Billet Plus Shifter T-5/T-45 (82-Early 01 V8; 93-99 Cobra; 94-04 V6)

    I just put one in my 97 Cobra. The install was very easy with the provided instructions. The shifter is very well built and gives a clean and solid shift. A white shift ball is included, but i replaced it with a black one to match my cars interior. It has a very classic muscle car look. My only problem with it is that it is a bit tall for a Mustang. If the stick was about 3 inches shorter i would given it 5 stars.

    Welcome Back to the Good Old Days

    Wow! I had a Hurst floor shift in my first car, so this is almost a spiritual experience. This install is far easier with only 4 bolts on top of the T-5 tranny. I took the opportunity to drain the tranny and replace the fluid with Royal Purple SyncroMax fed slowly from the top. The rubber gasket upgrade that a few people have complained about worked without problems. The siliconized rubber stuck tightly to the smoothly machined bottom of the billet shifter, and a slow tightening up to the proper torque finished it off. The Hurst boot is required to protect the mechanism, so the new lower floor boot needs to be trimmed to fit tightly around the Hurst boot while reaching the floor on the shifter tunnel. I used the original interior boot by incorporating a black rubber grommet inside the top of the boot, so most of the beautiful chrome shifter will stand out without the boot "riding up" toward the shifter ball. When looking at the attached photo, the small rotary switch to the right of the shifter is an SCT 4 Bank Tuner switch. A great project to be enjoyed on the open road.

    Excellent shifter upgrade at a good price

    I have found this upgrade to be an excellent decision on my daily driver. It looks and works great. Even though I had it installed as a part of a clutch replacement, I feel I could have easily done this myself. While waiting for its delivery, I checked both Hurst, and another Mustang after-market dealer, and found I saved about $50 when you consider the free shipping and better price. Really anxious to show it off. An Old Schooler with over 40 years of memories of the original 60s Hurst products.

    Hurst Shifter

    I bought the shifter for my 1996 mustang gt, because I got sick of the stock shifter. Very easy to put in your car, didnt take me long at all. The shifter shifts amazing Ive taken my car out a few times this year and I love how it shifts. I love the style with the white ball. You wont regret the extra money to upgrade to this one.

    Hurst Chrome Billet Plus Shifter w/T45 in 98 SVT Mustang Cobra

    In my opinion, you can't go wrong with shifter. It does all they claim it will do PLUS some. One of the Plus items is that 1st/2nd is now a bit further to the right vs the standard shifter and the handle is a bit longer. This is good in my opinion because I can now put a tall glass of water in that first Cup Holder that's located the closest to the shifter and I no longer run into it. It does have a bit shorter throw feeling to it and I like that self-centering feature. You are about to come to a stop I just barely have to touch it and it goes into neutral. You want to leave the car out of gear while sitting at a stop light because it will save the life of your clutch. The shift from 2nd to 3rd is improved as well. I can't think of anything else but that it's a great shifter. My SVT Cobra is thanking me for taking good care of it by getting it a new shifter for Christmas. I did note what the paper work said about the warranty and that it gave me the impression that it be professionally installed. I did that because I have a really good guy over my way that has very very fair prices and does a great job. Chris at Automotive Specialties is a great man ! I'm not adding a photo because there's already photos on this site that look similar to my console.

    My '96 GT with Hurst Shifter

    I am not a very skilled or experienced at mechanical work but I'll have to say that installing the Hurst shifter in my 1996 Mustang GT was a very easy job. I would recommend it to anyone. The quality of the shifter is top shelf. The shifter feels great and is very tight and solid feel. I'm so glad I changed it out. It made the GT feel like a new car when shifting.

    Retro Shifter at its best!

    I grew up with Hurst shifters and frankly I was tired of the ultra-short throw unit in my modified 94 GT. The car has been totally restored with and the 5.0 modified with a 331 stroker. The Hurst shifter and its beautiful chrome stick and iconic white shift ball just sets the car off perfectly. AND it shifts pefectly with a good feel to it for a change. I couldn't be happier.

    I just installed this today and all I can say is wow.. It looks great, shifts great and the extra height looks good and is very comfortable. I have owned a Steeda Tri Ax and this Hurst is wayyyy better.You do not need the shifter base gasket of any other add ons to install it as the purchase page suggests. Worth the money, buy it now.

    Hurst, that about all you need to say!

    I ordered the Hurst shifter Thursday, three days before I purchased the car. I purchased the Mustang Cobra the following Saturday. I knew if I bought the car the only thing I would change was the stock shifter. The shifter arrived Tuesday about noon and three hours later it was installed and I was driving the car. I wasn't wrong on my decision. The Hurst shifter has the stock shifter beat hands down. The quality is better and the shifts are smoother. It has a shorter throw and it looks better with the chrome stick and the white ball. Like I said before, you can't go wrong with a Hurst!

    hurst shifter

    love this shifter to death. love the way it looks, feels, and works. i have an orange mustang with black interior and the white shifter knob makes it look really cool. as for installation it was not hard but there was two tricky parts. first getting the stock shifter off was tricky and using a large screw driver to pry it off. the second part was getting the set screws in the right spot. im not sure if i have them perfectly in place but if you dont use thread lock the vibration will tighten them to the point where you cant engage any gear. once completely installed it was defiantly worth it. cant wait to buy my next upgrade.

    Best looking shifter on the market

    First of all they need different ways to rate shifters lol. I will start with why I gave it 4 stars. I was expecting this shifter to shorten the throw of the shift significantly due to driving another Hurst before. It didn't it only feels like a 10 difference in throw compaired to an MGW which reduces your throw from 25-35 depending on the handle. The only other issue I had with it is that the handle must've been loose when it was installed, now before you judge I ordered a clutch and the shifter and the shop said they'd install the shifter for free. So the shifter had a lot of play and I took everything a part and just tightened back down, not too big of a deal. Now for the good stuff. This shifter looks fantastic. It also has a nice smooth engagement and a positive feel for when you are in gear. This shifter looks good, feels solid, and is smooth. Good product I just wish the throw was shorter. Wasn't much of a bang for your buck when the shifter comes in just under 300 bucks so that's a definite 2. BTW American Muscle you should rate it by Throw reduction, Looks, Fitment, and Feel.
