Hurst is a name synonymous with Pontiac's most popular performance vehicles. Hurst supplied the chrome-shaft shifter found in so many manual- trans-equipped Pontiacs during the '60s and '70s, added Hurst Hatches to thousands of '70s Firebirds and Grand Prixs, and created the exclusive Hurst SSJ Grand Prix. You don't have to look far to find the Hurst name on a few of your favorite Pontiacs.

Considering the shared history, it should come as no surprise that Pontiac once again teamed with Hurst to provide Fourth-Gen Firebird buyers with an improved shifter introduced during the '99 model year. The code-BBS Hurst Shifter option added $325 to the price tag of any Formula or Trans Am equipped with a six-speed manual transmission.

It was quite an improvement over the standard unit, and many buyers—including us—originally opted for it. It improved overall tightness and reduced throw length. As with any production piece, it too, was compromised to meet pricing and average driver comfort requirements, and that limited its total effectiveness.
