    Possibly something as simple as the plastic shifter bushing? Not really sure, just throwing ideas out and thats the easiest to change out.

    Mine does that to sometimes, its like a vibrating rattle. It doesnt do it all the time but when it does its noticable. I dont know if its my Ypipe hitting my SFC's or something being to close to the tranny rubbing against it in my case.

    Mine has the Hurst with a brass shifter bushing so the rattling is just par for the course!

    Could just be from the short stick the stock stick has a huge cylinder on the bottom thats filled with rubber and the stick is mounted in the middle. The rubber reduces the tranny vibrations in the top of the handle without that there is nothing to reduce vibrations.

    ^^^ Your probably right it could be the short stick instead. I did go WOT on the highway a couple of times today for a couple of seconds just to see if it did it again and nothing this time.

    Had stock Hurst now I have a Pro 5.0 rattled with both. More than likely it is your u-joint like it was on mine. Put new spicers in and it stopped completely. Mine rattled worst if I would 5 grand pull then push clutch in, first gear especially.
