Re: Installing a shifter in my 2007 CTS-V?
There's a very good thread in the Performance Mods forum about "How to install a shifter from the top," or words to that effect. If you go to the end of the thread, I bumped it recently and re-linked all the pictures.
You do still have to get under the car to get to the pivot bolt at the bottom of the shifter. It's definitely a HUGE pain in the ass compared to the Mustang shifter! (A Hurst shifter in my '89 GT was literally the first mod I ever did on a car. )
