T5 transmission shifter relocation

Is it my imagination or do I recall seeing a swap somewhere that involved moving the shifter on a T5 transmission forward? I am doing a spitfire swap using a T5 and need the shifter moved forward. I know the S10s had a more forward shifter but I have a Camaro T5 I would like to use. Thanks.

Look up Mark Sawatsky'sv12 MGB GT in Project Journals and scroll down 40 pictures to see a neat way to move the shifter ahead any length you want .It's a really neat idea. Hope that helps you.

This is how TVR did it on some cars, I think they also used the S10 tailcasing on some cars.

For the Ford T5 - The S10 tail shaft conversion puts the shifter in the correct position. There a re two S10 tail shaft options, electric and gear drive speedo though, and which one you use affects options for speedo. We used the gear drive unit because it was far easier to find, and as we are planning to use a GPA speed sensor it really was not an issue.

I am getting ready to put a T5 in my TR4A.
Today, I am planning to use a T5 tailshaft from ''.

It's pricey though. But it gives you two places to put the shifter. It appears to be like the S10, but easier to find.
