I'm still waiting... I'm not worried about it, like has been pointed out to me many times, you can't hurry this process along... These things take time and I would rather have them hash it out and get it right than to hurry it and have more problems...

Russ,

I can't possibly thank you enough... The friends I've made on this site never cease to amaze me... i'm still having fond memories of the meal at Pappas Bros... Wow...

I've fought going to an auto, and it's funny the number of PM's I've recieved of people following along hoping I can make it work... whether they are just fans of the manual trans or hoping I can figure it out to save them the hassle of trial and error, It matters not the reason, but the support has been fun...

Wow,

I just got off the phone with Corey, and here is the latest...

RSG, Rockland Standard Gear, is trying to get this set up for me...

It's a TR6060 with...

Features
  • All gears and shafts are made of 9310 Alloy Steel
  • The gear train has a 22 degree helix angle for increased strength, less thrust load, and lower operating temperatures
  • All Tranzilla units feature C5 Corvette Triple Cone Synchronizers for ultra smooth shifts
  • Steel 3-4 Shift Fork
  • Solid, billet synchronizer keys
  • All components match fitted, and clearance corrected (blue printed)
  • New OEM bearings
  • Competition, race ready shim package

and.........

A tail housing with an internal shifter... Part of the supposition is that the flexing and torque twisting of the motor/trans is causing the shifter to not fully engage since it is connected at the rear to the body of the car...

With an internal shifter, there will be no external forces acting on the shifter other than me... so... Corey is waiting to talk to George at RSG in the morning to find out the price and it's on... I'll have an MGW for sale soon... With this one, you simple bolt on a shift rod and a ball and go to town...

This is a true racing transmission... so it ought to handle up on lil ole Brandi's power...

I'm stoked...

Ignore the part that says Ford Race Box... It's basically the same trans...

To install this, we will have to cut my brand new driveshaft from the Drive Shaft Shop, cut it to length, and put the carrier for a new u-joint on it... We'll also have to rebuild/modify the cross member... But, according to George, this thing shifts like butter...

I had DSS put a custom yoke on for my tranny. I bet Frank would do that work for you.

There is a shop in San Antonio that builds driveshafts and performs high speed balancing... I would love for Frank to take care of it, but we'll have to install the new trans and then measure from yoke center to yoke center and have the shaft cut... So, If I go with Frank and Crew to take care of it then we are looking at the install, measure, ship, cut, fit, balance and transport it back... This shop in San Antonio can have us in and out overnight...

We'll see but with Corey's connection, I'll probably have the shop in San Antonio take care of it....

There beeze some crazy folks in here... or are they yolks...

Just got a note from Corey...

He is taking a measurement from the tailhousing to main body mating point to the pivot point of the shifter...

We may have to do a little bit of internal modification to the console but that's pretty minor... I'm super excited and Corey gave the information to RSG for pmt and hopefully they either have one ready to go or can get started on really quickly... I'll completely remove the center console and have one custom built if thats what it takes to get Brandi to shift...

Either way.. I'm pumped about this....

Funny you mention that... I was just thinking, Old School stick without the console.

You don't need no stinking console

Might get lucky and it'll fit perfect.

Are you running solid motor mounts? Trans mount?
