Stock manual six

I just wanted to talk about how I dont have a problem with the stock shifter. I like it. I've had mine for about five weeks now. I think it shifts fine in all gears, especially when you shift at higher rpm's. When I shift correctly its smooth and quiet. So what if the throws are longer, you just get used to it, and you adjust and shift faster when needed. I hear some people talk about how they dont like it. Is there anyone else who is ok with it?

I think the 05/06's should have come with the 6l80e or w/e it's called option. The C6's auto trans with the paddle shifters. What fun!

I just got finished installing the GMM ripshifter about an hour ago. Let me tell you. If you make this upgrade you will think differently about the stock shifter. I didn't have a huge problem with the stock but I have freind that has the 02 ss with the t56 and a short shifter. After driving his I knew I had to have one. And now that I do I would never have that stock one in a million years. Just my opinion

What a coincidence. I start a thread like this at the same time you are finishing a new install . Anyway, congrats on your new toy. Sounds like you are more than pleased. Enjoy!

The stock shifter is functional. You can use it to change gears. That's about all the praise I can muster for it. But, I've driven better, much better.

It is slow and clunky with long throws. A 5-3 or even 4-3 downshift is frustratingly slow. If you find it acceptable that's great. Maybe yours behaves better than mine.

I thought the stock shifter was ok. Someone let me checkout their car with the GMM shifter and there's a night and day difference. Mine's on order. Again the stock shifter is ok but I really got to see her shortcomings when I hit the track. Sit in someones thats got the GMM shifter and you'll understand.

Does the GMM ripshifter have a spring bias to help avoid the 2nd to 5th mis-shift?
