I don't think there are any other options at this point for a top mount shifter.
How much time do you have to open a dispute case with Paypal? A month?


And yes there aren't much options for top mount shifters. The Serial Nine CD999 is what comes closer to the top mount position.

I don't think that would work without chopping out the back end of the trans tunnel/shifter hole.

And that's with me moving the engine about 1 1/4 inches forward vs. where the STS Machining mounts put it.

As it is I'll be trimming the shifter shaft stub (assuming it's still used) that pokes out of the back of the trans so it won't bump in the 'forward' gears that push it backward.

Maybe I should tackle the rear axle swap while I'm waiting for that damned shifter. After that's in I could at least install the trans (sans shifter) and get some measurements and get the driveshaft made.

I've just sort of been stuck waiting for that shifter because I wanted the next trans install to be 'final' (hah, best wishes o' mice and men), so I could really start hooking things up in the engine compartment instead of just mocking them up.

yeah it's never final. I had the t5 in and out of the blue 242 what feels like 100 times for various reasons.

That suck about the shifter. I was able to see the Serial Nice "Techinical relocation system" and it's greatly made, just not a viable option for your particular build.

You have up to 120 days on paypal do claim or open a dispute, though I hope you won't have to do it.

It's vaguely possible that one of those could work, with the shifter extension in the forward position. But I'd probably have to bash the hell out of the end of the tunnel, around the shifter area.

I didn't get any measurement on how much room I had around the back end of the trans as-is, since I was planning on using the top mount shifter. But I do recall thinking I might actually need to trim the shifter shaft off so it wouldn't touch when in 1/3/5 gears (lever forward, shaft fully extended).

This is with the LS moved forward 1.25 inches as well, the bellhousing face/back end of the motor is a bit further forward than the redblock engine's was. A top mount shifter might be a necessity on any redblock-cD009 trans swaps.

I sent CBF another email asking for a rough date, let's see if the respond this time.

I got some 4.25 -> 4.5 wheel adapters, so those on the front, plus the 8.8 in back (possibly with some spacers for proper fit?) and I should be good for a set of FWD offset 5X4.5 tires (i.e. 2005+ Mustang).

Which shouldn't be super hard to find, loads more choices.

But they're all ugly. Not that my current wheels look sharp sharp sharp, but most wheels I see these days just look plain tacky.

What's the closest thing anyone knows of that looks about like a Polaris in 4.5? I like 5 simple spokes.

Those seem pricey.

The fifteen52's are available in custom offsets: https://fifteen52.com/collections/ca...ant=4652694017

* Custom Offset. Please note desired offset(s) between ET0-45 in the "notes to seller" upon checkout. Please allow additional 1 week to fulfill order for custom work.
At least in the 4X100 and 5X114.3 patterns. One of which is what I need.

Homer just sold a set of those fifteen52 Tarmacs for a pretty good price. Biggest downside with those is they're pretty heavy. Maybe consider Homer's current wheel choice... Enkei RPF1s. Great bang for the buck with those.

But his set was (custom made) 5X108. I was kind of wanting to buy them, but I decided to go with a 114.3 bolt pattern.

Ah yes, derp. You just said you were switching bolt patterns.

I picked this up today... $500 CAD so like $385 USD. This is dirt cheap for a modern 6 speed tranny imo.

Awesome. It's a little 'safer' to buy the G37/370 'JK' version, than the 'CD00?' G35/350 version. Once the sticker is worn off, it's almost implossible to tell what kind those are, but all the 'JK' versions are good.

I'm still waiting on that shifter for mine. Which is all right, but they won't answer emails. 1 email a solid month after sending them money, another one 2 weeks after that.

I just posted a question on his FB page asking for the delivery time for the forward mount shifter kit. We'll see if he answers!

He did *promptly* answer a couple of questions I had before ordering and paying.

Again, while I would like it now now now, I'm not going to be pissy about stuff like this taking a while. I'd just like some sort of heads up on very roughly how long it will be.
