Hurst Shifter + 2012 392 = WOWOWOW

What a GREAT purchase! This shifter is absolutely AMAZING - definitely a MUST BUY for anyone still on the fence!

I opted to re-use the stock pistol grip since I prefer the OEM look (that, and the two times I touched the white cue ball shifter it got filthy so I figured it would be a pain in the ass to keep clean being so gleaming white and all)

I think the best way to describe this shifter is FIRM and HEAVY (but a GOOD heavy)... the throw is WAY less than stock and this shifter makes the stock one feel sloppy and ridiculous.

Install was pretty straight forward; two areas that were a pain was getting the one bolt off that had the lock-tight (but a little elbow grease solved that problem) and getting the two pins lined up and installed on the shifter linkage (it wasn't that it was super difficult, it was just that you have minimal room to fit your hands and BOY are things sharp down there!)

All in all, definitely worth the money! Anyone contemplating this purchase needs to bust out their wallet.

I can't speak for the noise issue with the Hurst shift stick but I will say that with the stock shifter it is ALMOST exactly the same as stock... you can hear the EVER SO SLIGHTEST "whirring" sound every now and again but I could only hear it with my windows up and if I leaned my ear down near the shifter so definitely don't panic about this issue if you're keeping the OEM shift knob.

Here are some pictures from the install... no final pic because, well, it looks the same as stock.

What if any special tools are needed. I eventually want to do this. And about how long, if you work straight through, taking your time do you figure it takes. Good job by the way. Congrats.

It isn't too bad of an install. Here is a writeup with pics we did a while back

How did you reuse the stock shift handle since it attaches to the linkage differently?

The hurst has a stock style mount for stock shifters. I'm using a gunslinger pistol grip with my hurst, works perfectly.

The Hurst shifter has an extra slot that allows the stock shifter to slide in and bolt up. Mikey from Speedlogix originally told me this was not possible due to Chrysler changing the design of their stock shifter slightly but I found no problems hooking it right up without any modification; just plug and play.

I let a few buddies try out the shifter tonight and they were blown away!

[NOISE UPDATE] After driving around tonight i can see the noise people are referring to; if you are sitting idle in traffic with the windows up and radio off you can hear a slightly annoying, intermittent rattle (only hear it occasionally) from the transmission. The same sound can be heard from outside but was very muted in the cabin before; now, not so much.

It's not absolutely terrible by any means but noticeable enough that my wife was like "is your car supposed to make that sound?" so it definitely sounds out of place.

I think the car sounds more raw, reminds me more of a brute force race car... When you're actually moving, I kinda like the noise the car makes, actually sounds good.

That being said, I can see how some might dislike it. A Chrysler 300 luxury car this is not!

A little noise still doesn't take away from the fact that this is the greatest mod I've done next to Zoomers!

Did you use the dynamat kit that came with it?
When you press the clutch all the way down, do you hear the little rattling noise go away?
