    Not sure if I'm 100% on this, but I believe the Hurst aftermarket has a shorter throw and an adjustable 2-3 shift spring.

    However, the factory Hurst shifter came with a rubber noise isolator to reduce noise and vibrations from the T56. I don't believe the aftermarket Hurst came with these, nor do I know if you could re-use the same rubber noise isolator on an aftermarket Hurst shifter. (I have the Pro 5.0 shifter)

    Unfortunately, I don't have any pics to share, just some information

    factory hurst has a thick base(~1/4'), the plain shifter has a very thin base

    The Hurst Pro-Billet shifter has an adjustment (see arrow) that allows you to limit the throw. It has the same length throw as a stock, the adjuster just keeps you from throwing too far.

    That is an aftermarket Billet Plus and here is a Factory Hurst



    The Billet has the same shorter throw as the Factory Hurst unit but also adds the positive stops and adjustable centering spring tension. Not to mention a true bolt on stick with no rubber isolator.
