Re: T56 Information - First Generation Camaro Swap
I don't think anyone has given a measurement yet so:
The stock shifter location on my '99 Camaro T-56 is 5" behind that on my Muncie with a high mounted Hurst Super Shifter. My car was originally equipped with an automatic, so I had to cut the hole and modify the tunnel for the huge Hurst/Muncie combo. I think that this shifter was designed to fit near the loacation of the stock '68's shifter???
Honestly, I like the location of the T-56 shifter. I'm fairly short (5'7") and always felt like I had to reach for the straight handle on the Muncie. With the T-56, my arm can pretty much rest on the trans tunnel to shift!!
