Shifter base for TR6060 LSx LTx swap from Camaro / G8 / SS / ATS-V / VE-VF

Shifter base for custom conversions using TR6060 transmissions sourced from:

  • 2009 Pontiac G8 GXP
  • 2010+ Camaro (V8 only)
    • aka GM # 92246731 ; 92236241 ; 24264045 ; 24258816; 92249325
  • 2015-2017 Chevrolet SS
  • 2016-2019 Cadillac ATS-V (V only, no others)
  • 2007-2017 Holden Commodore VE & VF (V8 only)
  • 2007-2017 HSV E-series & Gen-F aka Vauxhall VXR8
  • NOT FOR USE IN ANY OF THESE CARS! Stick is NOT offset rearward like OE & will NOT FIT in console - it would be ~15" ahead, under the dashboard...
  • ONLY works with TR6060 models that have a LINKAGE COVER at forward port
    • NO modifications! Simply remove linkage cover and install base (see pics)
  • Shifter stub will come through floor directly above linkage cover ~19" from engine block! In most cars this is WAY too far forward (see pic). For more info click here
  • For driveshaft help - contact The Driveshaft Shop

This base does NOT FIT TR6060 models that have a BLANK COVER at forward port UNLESS trans is reconfigured into one of the models listed above - a VERY difficult, complicated, expensive job that we do not recommend (disassemble trans, cut rail and change lug, interlock paddle, tail housing, main shaft, maybe more?). If you have a 2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V TR6060 aka GM # 24264047 ; 24258817 "MG9" - reconfigure it to become a 2010+ Camaro TR6060 to use this base or a Challenger TR6060 to use a tail base... For Viper, Falcon, & Challenger, see the tail bases that directly replace the OE shifter (forward location not really an option).

This base does NOT FIT ANY T56 - different detent architecture requires different parts!
  • NOTE: Conversion parts from McLeod & Keisler / SST etc are NOT equivalent to OE TR6060 linkage receptacle - different depth, different base

This base mounts on a 4-bolt rectangular pattern that is ~ 2.88" wide x 3.65" long; stub pivot ball center is ~1.5" below the flange. It only fits in forward location as discussed above. For tail location bases, see separate listings - these vary by model

A Hurst stick is required (NOT included, sold separately). Other brands and homemade sticks are discouraged. Stick mount has 3/8"-24 threaded holes spaced 7/8" apart on center + mating serrations for a Hurst stick on one face. Due to larger mounting threads (3/8"-24), sticks that use 8mm mounting bolts (most OE, "non-TKO" Lokar, others) will not work. Lokar TKO sticks can be mounted but only to the smooth side of the stub. To select the proper parts:

  • Wait until new transmission is installed to buy shifter parts
    • Remove existing shifter base if present
    • Sit in vehicle, in driving position, with all interior trim (dash, console, etc) in place
  • Define desired knob location in space (neutral position):
    • Measure height from base flange to desired knob location = overall height
    • Measure side & rear offsets from receptacle bore to desired knob location
    • See this diagram for clarification
  • Study the Hurst stick page for shapes that meet your needs
    • Allow 3-6" for stick mount height
    • Choose a stick and see what fulcrum heights are compatible with it (see chart)
    • Check overall height (see chart: stick height + mount height = overall height)
  • Confirm chosen combination achieves desired knob location and that fulcrum height works with stick length selected
    • Consider various stick & stub combinations to optimize
    • Note long sticks on angled mounts will strongly offset knob to left (can be 5-6"+)
    • Note OE dust boot is short and exposes stick mount which helps in tight situations
    • Options E & F require a Hurst stick directly mounted on side w/ serrations

Stub fulcrum height options (critical to optimizing leverage for short throw):

Option For stick length stick mount height stick mount angle boot type upcharge
A 8" 2.8 vertical Billet Plus default
B 10" 3.3 vertical Billet Plus +$10
C 10"+ 4.3 vertical OE (short) +$20
D 12"+ 5.1 angled 14 deg left OE (short) +$30
E 13"+ 4.0 angled 14 deg left Billet Plus +$40
F 14"+ 4.2 angled 14 deg left Billet Plus +$40
I 6" 3.3 vertical OE (short) +$80
  • Stick length = point-to-point distance from mount hole to knob thread
  • Stick mount height = distance from base flange to stick bolt hole (affects knob height)
  • Fulcrum height = distance from lower ball to fulcrum pin; varies by option, not published
    • Warning: Follow stick length guide to avoid excess effort & component failure
