Core short throw shifter for 1989-1996 C4 Corvette w/ ZF 6 speed
Short throw shifter kit for OE replacement in:
- 1989-1996 Chevrolet Corvette (C4) - all models w/ manual trans
Only fits ZF S6-40 6 speed manual trans specific to C4 Corvette
- Does not fit other model years or any other model
Kit includes billet steel shift lever assembly with pre-installed bearings, all necessary small hardware, and detailed installation instructions; bulk parts; no retail pkg. Comparable to discontinued Hurst # 3915084 - produced by the original vendor to Core Shifters specifications (Hurst no longer involved). This was our first product back in 1999! Core Shifters collaborated with Hurst (Mr Gasket) in the development - buy from the people who know this shifter better than anyone - we wrote the instructions!
Throw is reduced by ~ 40% to reduce mis-shifts and increase confidence in operation; most aftermarket Corvette shifters are too aggressive - this one has the ideal balance of effort vs distance. The reduced leverage also enhances neutral centering function for a better 2-3 shift. The OE rubber coupling is eliminated to increase rigidity and offer precise tactile control. Designed for use w/ stock console boot; no modifications required.
- Knob height is ~1.25" lower than stock to increase comfort and accessibility
- Knob NOT included (available separately if desired)
- Stick accepts stock knob or any knob with 9/16"-18 thread
** This shifter reuses most stock components except for the lever itself; other brands replace some of these parts in a way that is not compatible. If you presently have another aftermarket shifter installed, you cannot use this shifter without obtaining the missing stock parts. This shifter is designed to use most of the stock components for a superior, smooth, factory-type fit and function. **
The reverse lockout lift-ring found on 1989-1994 models is eliminated as it is unnecessary with the enhanced centering function of the reduced leverage, thereby updating to functionality of 1995-96. This shifter requires moderate mechanical skill to install; the ZF external linkage design is far more complex than the typical modular bases of T5/T56 trans. However, precise installation instructions are included which if followed carefully will ensure success. Regardless of brand, all shifters for this application require the same installation effort. This design was carefully refined to fit properly with all factory components, yielding an OE fit with superior performance, longevity and ease of use; before Hurst was acquired by B&M, the Hurst shifter was the most popular C4 shifter on the market.
