What is the cheapest route to get a decent shifter base. The stock one is a real POS. I think the hurst base for the GTO is around $260 on the net. B&M has the 45043 for $199 but I am not sure it would work in a stock application.

Don't buy a Hurst GTO shifter, they're not any better than stock and more than a few of them have broken. The only shifters worth it are a GMM ripshifter or a converted Proxes MGW-P. They pop up every so ofter on ebay, LS1tech and LS1gto you can get used ones for $200-$350.

And Billet shifters too, for more $$. But I'm partial to MGW.

Current: MGW-p, H-pipe, SS OTRCAI, Lovell rear springs, Eliminator shocks and Pioneer AVH-P3300BT, JBA LTs+catless mids, Drilled/Slotted rotors, Kooks Afterburners, catch can & Tune Next: ??? Wish list: Intake & TB, modest cam, UDP, gears

re

if you change the offset lever to one for a camaro then a camaro shifter will fit. Then you will need to make a handle to come out in the stock location not that big of a deal if you can fabricate---danfigg
