Paddle Shifters?

Is it possible to install those on a 14 v6? or is it some crazy wiring process?

The answer to both questions is yes.

You could likely tap into the relays in the shifter used for + / - and rig something up that way if you really wanted.

You probably could but since no one else has done it yet it would be a custom job, which could cost quite a bit.

Anything is possible with enough money, patience and know-how.

I just feel like that would take a lot of all three though.

Thanks for the replies guys, I got curious because I did a track day driving a new stingray and loved how the paddle shifters worked. Probably a mod to consider later on when I have more time on my hands

I'd like to see that for myself. Sounds like a bargain at 260.

There are paddle shifters, and then there are "paddle shifters"

Real paddle shifters are going to be integrated in, "paddle shifters" are going to be like granny shifters at your fingers, they are mainly there for looks and wanting to shift yourself. They aren't true performance paddles.

+1, Not worth it without a dual clutch transmission paddle shifters were designed for imo.

Otherwise they're just for decoration.

I got them for $250. Install took about 30 minutes. Pretty simple. Just 4 wires to tap into.

That's not terrible, in that case I'd consider it for ****s and giggles.

Where did you get it from?

They're "paddle shifters"
although for the type of racing he is doing, he can plan in advance when he wants it to shift.
So you'd tap a little early to get it to shift.
