    Regarding the other thread about needing to massage the body, I did the solid body bushings before I did my install and I have an early car too. I had to BFH for the reverse lockout like you did but none of the other spots you showed but I did have to BFH the front of the trans tunnel a little. I think the year car has a lot to do with whether the car needs cutting or just some minor clearencing. But I also used the ATS (Speedtech now) crossmember and I think it sits the trans "up" higher than stock, but I never measured before or after. I have to take the rear suspension apart soon so I will take some measurements then

    I heard of that being true. I wish I used the solid bushing before my swap.
    would have save me from swinging a hammer upwards while on my back:screwup: .. reverse lockout would have been the only thing to massage.:)

    Yeeeeaaaahhhhhhhhhh....:D

    I am still not sure if I will go with a TKO600 or T-56 actually, although it will be one of the two since I want a manual. I really don't think I *NEED* a 6th gear, esp considering the ratios of the final gears for those two trannys are about the same. I know we talked about it and you gave me your opinion, but I am still not sure. :confused: Anyway, I digress...

    If you drove my car, you would be dead set on a t56 and you would never look back!!

    I bet TKO owners would say the same thing ;)

    I am not saying I wouldn't enjoy driving a car with a T-56, but not sure I would *NEED* a T-56 versus a TKO600.
