from what I understand it will be easier to install than the other shifters available...you don't need to unbolt and lower the transmission. Shouldn't be to hard if that's the case.

Hurst Shifter

Put mine in Tuesday. You do have to loosen the Tranny cross-member to lower the tranny about an inch. It's pretty tight in there. The hardest thing was getting the dust boot back on. Put a few cuts in my hands doing it. Took about an hour and a half to do the job. The shifter works great! Much shorter throw.:thumbsup:

I assume that it does come with some kind of instructions.

Direct from Hurst. I pre-ordered it, so it shipped the day they released it. It is so much more solid than the stock shifter. I orginally thought the stock shifter was pretty good, but after driving with the Hurst shifter, you will actually consider the stock shifter sloopy.:thumbsup:

Any idea on the amount of time it takes to install as I will need to have mine done as I don't have the ability to do it myself. Time usually equals dollars.

OK, I instlalled my shifter today and I have to say that it has to be one of the easiest mods that a person can do on there car.Heck, I think it took longer to jack the car up and put the jackstands in place. I haven't had a chance to try it out yet because of wheather but it feels pretty good.
