    The PRO 5.0 is much better piece. I don't like the feeling of the Hurst it's too knotchy for me!

    I don't think Pro 5.0 currently makes a shifter the the GTO.

    The GMM shifter is well regtarded as the best shifter upgrade you can get for a GTO. Its about $300, but it relocates the shifter so that its not remote mounted, which improves the feel and precision.

    Heres the article on it from GM High Tech Performance:

    Thanks for the info. Good article too. I'll use that for my future mods.
    I have a new set of SLP coated headers, downpipes, Random tech cats coming next week. I think I'll go for the GMM Ripshifter.
    Just out of curiousity, where can I look up info for the Pro 5.0? I'd like to see if they came out or are coming out with a shifter for the GTO.

    Here's their website, I don't see any mention of anything for the GTO.

    No problem. The Billet Products shifter feels like the Pro5.0 shifter does on T-5's to me if you have ever driven a Mustang with one of those.

    I think you will see a drastic improvement with the Billet Products shifter.
    Any luck finding those plugs locally?
    If not call me and we will work someting out.

    I have the Hurst unit with a Lou's short stick and large Hurst Ball and love it.
    !00% better than the stock unit...Anything is better than the stock piece of junk.

    Wow, I thought my posting here about a Hurst shifter went into oblivion. lol.
    I should update this posting on my decision.

    Well time flew by and I never got my shifter yet. I spent my previous "mad money" on a set of CV8R wheels from Wheel King in Australia and the rest on Goodyear F1 Eagles. So now winter is winding down and I made a ton of $$$ in overtime plowing snow, the tax return is looking good and I hit a Super Bowl pool with a friend for 10k...I think I can swing a GMPP Rip Shifter now.

    I let you all know how the install this spring.
    04 Cosmos Purple M6, SAP Grills & Spoiler, '05 Hood, Procharger, TrickFlow 515 HP H/C Kit, SLP LT Headers/LM II, '05 Big Red Brake upgrade, Drag bags, Holden CV8R wheels, GMM Ripshifter. Tuned by New Era: 515 rwhp/471 ft.lbs. Retuned by J&J Speed: Speed Density tuned 586rwhp/ 492 ft.lbs.

    A buddy of mine who I have met from the other GTO forum has that. He had a Hurst but he said it was to difficult to shift with so he bought a Billet and now he is happy. I sat in his 06 and shifted the Hurst and the Billet and the Billet shifts way smoother. Mine came with a B&M and I'm not complaining.
