Who'd you hear that from? The Fx4 shifter is just a chrome handle, its the same thing as other ranger shifters. The Hurst actually changes how it shifts.

yeah but look at the shape of the two shifters. I am not saying its a 100% the same. I just remember someone saying they went from hurst to fx4 and didnt notice a huge difference.

Yeah the shape is a little different but it doesn't change the shift patterns.

Anything is possible. You could get a piece of metal and machine it like the Hurst shifter and get it chromed...
