    Is it possible to install a pistol grip shifter from the early model SRT8 Challengers into a 2016 Challenger SRT8 thereby replacing the ball shifter?

    I wanted to do this and was told no by the service manager because the linkage is different. I can't say how true that is though, but I know I miss the pistol grip, though I'm sure we can do aftermarket.

    If you want the Pistol Grip just for the ole school looks it's great, now if you really want to upgrade the shifting performance, Barton shifter hands down ! I had the Hurst with pistol grip in mine for 5 yrs, marginal better shifting at best. Had issues with the handle getting sloppy loose and vibration buzzing noise with rpm's.

    Went the same route as El Diablo on my 09. Installed the hurst comp shifter then a OEM E body console shifter handle (I think, it's been a few years). Replaced the wood grain grips with some carbon fiber ones and replaced the shift pattern sticker with a correct 6 speed one. While the look is really cool, slamming gears isn't as precise as the hurst shifter, a little sloppy if you ask me. But now the 09 is just the cruiser.

    I have it installed on my Hellcat. I love it! Just make sure to install it using the dynamat that's included with it.

    Pistol grip looks kewl for sure, I'm not knocking it. But...Try a Barton and you will never own another Hurst for the new Challengers.

    I have driven a stock m6. I have felt what a Barton and hurst is like. What is the feeling like to the pistol grip shifter handle?

    I was going to go with the Barton after doing research everyone seemed to favor it over other brands, but I really really wanted the old school retro look so the hurst was the way to go for me.

    I'm happy with it and it gets lots of compliments.

    I wish I got a M6 just because of that shifter. It is exactly like the 1970 shifter.

    Unfortunately, no. The 5-speed automatic, prior to the A8, had some shifter options.
