Kenji from B&M/ Hurst talks to Matt Sweeting from Power Brake TV about their paddle shifter kits for the modern pony cars. He explains how they are easy to install, as the steering wheels already have a button to shift in the back on each side of the wheel. So their paddle shifters need only two bolts and then you can pull on any part of the paddle to shift the car up and down. A simple install gives your Camaro, Mustang, or Challenger a European style paddle shift.
The unit is good for automatic cars, the Chrysler unit is different in that it integrates with the autostick.

About Power Brake Service:
We build and Rebuild endless varieties of new and classic brakes for every type of vehicle and trailer. The company was started by George Sweeting in 1950 who worked for the railroads and Lockhead, it is now run by his son Bob Sweeting who learned about modifying cars while drag racing in the 60's, and Bob's son Matt Sweeting (who grew up in all of this) is taking over more and more responsibilities. We were a Warehouse Distributor for Bendix for 20 years until they sold they sold their Power Brake Division to Bosch, which is when we became a special modification contractor with Bosch for their power brakes - which come on most new American vehicles. Our ability to design brake systems, rather than just replace rotors and pads, has taken us to amazing places and we have worked on amazing projects. We have:
Vacuum Brake - Conversions, Upgrades, and Modifications
Wilwood and Brembo Disc Brake Kits
Stainless Braided Hoses
Classic Car / Muscle Car Stock Brake Restoration and Rebuilding (Corvette, Camaro, Chevelle, Mustang, Ford & GM Truck, Mopar, Rolls Royce)
Light Truck / Medium Truck Hydro-Boost Replacement Parts and Conversions
Medium Truck / Heavy Truck Hydro-Max, Air brake, and Air-hydraulic systems - and Hydro-Max Conversions for the obsolete Delco Hypower
Conversions for the obsolete Buick Grand National, T-bird SC, Land Rover, Jeep and all other electric brake Booster / electric powermasters
Modified brakes for Altered Bed Fleet Vehicles
Modified sensitivity for the Handicaped
Disc/Drum and Disc/Disc Proportioning Valves
We have worked on everything from propane powered trams to roller coasters, cranes, parade floats, multi engine street rods, classic european cars, double decker buses, and a Freightliner racing truck. Our favorite is working on big engine muscle cars that make too little vacuum and need more stopping power.

TCM Paddle Shift Demo
Demonstration of my homemade transmission control module (TCM) with paddle shifting. Vehicle is a 1987 Pontiac Fiero GT with a 4.6L Cadillac Northstar engine. Video shows how the TCM is programmed via laptop, installation, and in-vehicle testing. (Note that the wiring harness, paddle shifter mechanism, and gear indicator had already been installed at this point.) Vehicle is 100% manual control. Just like a stick shift, you can put it in 1st on the highway. But it can be programmed to lock out gears according to vehicle speed. Torque converter lockup is treated as a 5th gear.
