    Default Finally changing the shifter in my truck...

    Removed the original Hurst, drained the original lube and refilled. Haven't got the new shifter installed but I did get some comparo pics of the old and new.
    The new shifter is a billet aluminum part from JTSVP and supposed to be the best shifter for the ram srt 10 there is. I got the very last one being produced so I sure hope I like it.

    As you can see, the jtsvp shifter has a much taller mounting block. There are adjustable springs inside, I forget how many. I really don't like the shifter height being lower than stock so that will take some getting used to.

    I'd like to go back to kvd before summer is over. It'll for sure be at the Mopar nationals this year. May try to run it in the quarter while I'm there.

    Get yourself a 12.5 mpg srt 10...then you'll put on 7k miles in 4 years like me.

    Yeh, that's about what my 5.4 has been getting too but that butch runs just fine on 87. I guess the viper engine isn't too bad. I got around 12.5 average last time I took it to the track counting racing and the trip.

    Glad to see some progress. I think the shifter is important not because it gives you better times.. but because it will save the life of a rather expensive transmission.
