Got my new LPE / Revenge GTO on Sunday. Runs great. Can't do the 6 speed anymore- knees are shot.

So I need a good aftermarket shifter - with precision detents, etc.

Anybody got experience / suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Can you post pics of your car? Is your tranny the stock 4L60/5-E or some aftermarket tranny. If it's the stock tranny why would you want an aftermarket shifter? Just leave it in 3 and floor it. I would not suggest to manually shift a stock tranny. But I have not seen any GTO specific automatic aftermarket shifters, only on GTO's with aftermarket TH400's. I would think any aftermarket shifter would work as long as it is designed for a 4L60. I know its your car it just my opinion.:)
If you want more performance out of your auto tranny have your car tuned or get a hand held programmer to get firmer shifts, by geting rid of the Torque Management.

I posted pictures in the Gallery -

My auto trans has been remapped by Lingenfelter. It shifts like "right now!" This is my first high performance auto trans car since my 69 Hemi Cuda (sure wish I had that car now!) and the Hurst shifter for the torqueflite was amazingly good. My left knee is just about shot so I sold my Z06 - couldn't stand the cramps when getting caught in our miserable Bay Area traffic.

This car accelerates very quickly and it would be great to manually shift it now and then and not fear going past the detents. The stock shifter is awful. I've looked at the Hurst and B&M shifters with the gates (the shifter in my '07 Lexus is perfect - it has the up and down auto-shift gates) but was checking on this form to see if anyone had installed something that worked.

I'll keep checking.

Thanks
