There is a detent plate mod that you can do that will allow you to pull your shifter down into 1st... I don't know all the details but if you surf over to www.ls1.com or www.slpeng.com I think you will find the details you need. Post back if you don't find your answer as I may have some other bookmarks...

This web sight is incredible!
My son, Gunnar drove his 67 to school for the first time today. We bought it for him when he was 2. Another Camaro nut has been unleashed.
