Im prepping a 1994 Camaro sourced L32 3.4L V6 and T5 for installation in my 1980 B roadster. Anyone know what is the clearance is between the top of the shifter extension housing and the transmission tunnel ?. I will be using a BMC low profile rear gearbox mount.
I have a supposedly MGB specific modified gear lever that came with the T5 and I want to see if it is usable. I seems to me eyeballing it, the gear lever will not clear the edge of the transmission tunnel cut out the way it has been bent. It would need around 3" between the top of the extension housing and the transmission tunnel to work.
Thanks
