Default Ratchet shifter or anything like that?

Hey guys a quick question for ya.

Seen anything like a ratchet shifter for our autos?

I've only seen things like new shifter grips. (I rode in an 89gta that had a ratchet shifter)

Any benefits to this? Thanks!

I just put a b&m ratchet shifter in my car. its a 2000 camaro. There is no direct fitment for our cars but it does work im now getting a tranny built with a manual valve body i dont think there is any benefit to it but i dont go to the track so it is just alot more fun around town for me

Yeah and I wouldn't ever go to the track, I'd just do drag & mainly street.

im leaning towards b&m pro stick set up for my 4l80e because the stock set up sucks easy to go from 1st to 3rd.

Thanks man! I appreciate it, any pics of how yours looks installed?
Would I have to cut up the stock center console piece?

More then likely, I'll have someone install it for me cuz I'm not super knowledgeable when it comes to transmissions

I haven't bought anything yet and from what I've seen you can retain the stock console except the plastic where shifter moves back and forth. hope that helps. i do plan on getting it once i get my car back from the speed shop, I'm doing it myself.
