i have a 68 camaro. originally had a straight six and 3 speed, now has a tko and v8. the back of the engine looks like it sits low and the top of the tranny is snug against the floor of the car, i had to cut about 1.5inches to get the shifter through the floor, so seems like its pretty far back eventhough theres about 4 inches between the firewall and belhousing. does all this sound wrong???
