    I recently bought the Hooker T56 shifter hump to fit over my T56 Magnum. I had made 2 previous floor patches myself but was not really happy with the way they looked. It's a heavy gauge piece that fit the floor pretty well. I had to bend the flanges a bit to fit flat to the floor. The top has a flange around the edge which is designed to allow you to get to all of the shifter bolts, if needed. i covered the opening with a piece of sheetmetal and then mounted a shifter boot over it. Works good, is functional and looks a lot better than anything I could have made.

    Huh...I didn't know that existed. Does it fit under the carpet?

    Looks like it sits pretty high. I like it, but don't want to blow $60 if it doesn't fit under an OEM cut carpet. I may just have to try it.

    Bill70, what shifter position are you using? 1 (forward position), 2 (front of the back position), or 3 (rear of the back position)? Are you further offsetting shifter position fore or aft? How far back from the trans tunnel panel seam is the leading edge of the hump? How much clearance do you have between shifter and rear of hump opening?

    I can only get 1 out of 3 pics to come through (using Photobucket embedded image fix). I can see only the first one. Do you still have the other 2? Or any others showing outer flange locations?

    Trying to install the hump in my 1974 Camaro while it's still a bare shell. There is no documentation from Holley. I'm using the FBody LS1 T56, and the shifter is 2.9" further back from Magnum position 3. Kind of looks like any further back and the hump will hit the seats.

    Thanks much for any input you can provide!

    Same here! I thought I could make it work with Fbody T-56 but it's really Magnum-only. Holley says it fits under the stock console - no idea about carpet, but it's pretty large. I would assume not.

    My reason to not use it has nothing to do with fitment or carpet, I just decided to make my own...
