    Get the BIGGEST hurst boot you can find. If you have the seperate reverser lever, you might hafta cut a hole for it but the Vgate guts will cram into the big hurst boot. I dunno of anybody even making the Vgate specific version anymore.

    I've had both styles, my current V has the reverser integrated into the main shifter. I don't care for it as much but it WILL fit under that giant hurst boot.

    good thing to know, I've got the Mr. Gasket V-gate with the seperate reverse arm hangin on the shop wall and the Hurst Superboot that I'll have to cut a hole in so it looks like maybe it'll be ok

    I have the shifter, missing the boot, and missing the linkage! Probably using the large boot like others said is the way to go.
