    I tried the Hurst shifter and found that they are too short on the bottom throw. Mine would pop out of the rail on hard shifts at the track. I returned it after measuring the shifter and reporting the problem to Hurst .... who is now owned by Mr. Gasket. No response. I bought a B&M Shifter and it works much better than stock and in slightly longer to insure full engagement. I still sport the Hurst shift knob on my B&M Shifter because it's so much better than the stock knob.

    Good luck..... I'd check the length compared to stock and see if you have a problem like I did.
