    Good work, I'm wrapping up mine right now with an LS1 T56 behind my L82 SBC 350. I'll soon be swapping in a 406 to put in front of it. :)

    I really like some of your solutions. I have a RAM adjustable master cylinder and the pedal travel is very tiny it seems. I was trying to come up with a bump stop for it.

    Nice job. :)

    OK, so since my LY6 swap did not happen (YET) I put my brothers steve
    6 speed in the car.

    Time to finish it up. I have a good size hole in the tunnel as you can see.
    Yes the boot will cover it up fine. I think if I could make a removable plate, and make the shifter hole smaller, I can cancel out more road, motor noise.

    Here is what I got now.

    This will be removable with small 1/4 sheet metal screws and
    will still have the boot cover atop :cool:

    I finally installed my clutch with the ATS bracket. One thing I noticed and I didn't see posted in any forums, was the sheetmetal protrusion from the rubber nipple that holds the sound deadener inside the car. I ground that thing down and the bracket, cylinder, everything lined up perfectly. I still had to enlarge that hole, but everything fit excellent.

    So your saying you did not have to bend the bracket at all??
    Did you connect it to the pedal yet??

    That's right. Everything fit perfect. The clutch pedal fits perfect and the brake pedal fits perfect although because I plan on replacing the brake booster and master cylinder after I ship the car to my home, I haven't installed the adjustable rod from MP brakes yet.

    Did you grind that protrusion away? If you didn't, I'm positive that was your problem. The protrusion is almost directly in line with the bottom studs of that bracket which means you're instantly going to have alignment problems.
