MT-82 transmission in a coyote swapped fox

I have a picture of the original shift location in my ‘89 with the MT-82 trans in place. Towards the left of picture (front of car) you can see the actuator for transmission is almost under the hole. Most short shift kits are going to put the actual shifter well away from the hole in the fox. I don’t want to cut up my console if I don’t have to and would rather spend money on a different transmission (as last resort) than have the final product look...less than amazing.

Hey Bill
Been a long build for me as I am not a mechanic by any means!! I haven’t logged in for a while but have been hard at work on my build.
The Mt-82 trans required a lot of work for me as I have the 03 interior so the shift bucket (center console) kinda drove where I had to come through the tunnel. I ended up cutting/welding the tunnel and buying the 6” short shifter from MGW. I cut out the original trans member brackets and welded in a Stifflers crossmember.
It’s been 8 years now and I have just finally road tested the car. Exhaust needs to be finished from the x-pipe but hoping to get that done soon before it goes to the paint shop. image.jpgB14E1621-853A-4571-9BCD-A9056F5D91C6.jpegimage.jpg

That is a sweet ride. When you get time, I would love to read more about your experience with putting in that tranny. Thanks for the pics.
