Newbie with Newbie questions.

Just got a 06 GTO. Black with red seats 6 speed. I already have a 99 C5 that I installed a Hurst in and am thinking about the B&M for the GTO. My question is how hard is it to install and are there any good manuals for me to reference to. One more thing when did they start putting the MN12 in the GTO. My under the hood tag says MN12 not 6. Thanks guys.

Ugh its a real pain in the but unless you have access to a lift. I dont have the link atm with the directions but for instants you have to lower your tranny down a couple inches to do so. Plus the location of the bolts blow. If you want to change it out to a better shifter i would sugest the GMM ripshifter. Its the best out there i think. But its a bit pricy

Here ya go. Stay away from the B&M. You may spend more on the GMM but it's worth it. Oh, and get ready for an a$$ kicking putting it in.

Put mine (GMM) in yesterday took about 3 hrs. I followed the instructions from the LS1GTO site (same as above) and it was easy enough. Just used a jack, stands and did it in my garage. Alot of bad reviews on the B&M. Good luck.

Good move-- the B&M is a nightmare.
