Short throw shifter?

Anyone know of a company(ies) that make any good one(s)? (besides hurst and B&M) Also, are they hard to install? When I had my tC I installed one in under an hour.

Thanks

B&M is discontinued, Hurst is a good choice.

I have a TWM Performance one in my 2009 SS/TC. Best short shifter I've installed in any of my cars! I also got their base bushings and a Big Type R heavy weight shift knob, the shifter feeling is so much better than the stock one!

I've had a chance to compare a Hurst to a TWM at a local meet on 2 Cobalt, my choice was dead easy to make. Here's where I bought it:

Hurst and TWM are the two best ones out there...TWM costs more and probably slightly higher quality but I'm very happy with the Hurst...it lowers the knob with lower pivot as well...although not as aggressively as TWM...here it is with a custom knob...


2009 SS/TC full bolt-ons, Trifecta 23psi tune...

Ark is just a copy of the hurst shifter... Far from high quality stuff.

TWM is having a nice group buy offer right now for their Cobalt shifters, I just saw that. For the price they offer, nothing even come close to it!
