Default Sequential Shifter

Oky doky, this is the kind of thing where some extra dough from the outside would make something at a higher level possible.

If we buy a new, basic Hurst shifter and install kit, it's about $300. However, there is a pretty slick sequential shifter setup for the Top Loader. Guess what? It's more. Like $700. But banging through gears sequentially with just a push or pull would be pretty awesome. Pretty much like this guy.

Default Update

It looks like we're going to have a sponsorship that will allow us to use this shifter. Details to come shortly once worked out.

In a very small way.

I got the trans cross member done tonight but I hope it will work. Joe, can you tell me if this is how the trans lines up with the shifter hole on your Mustang? I bolted the engine and trans together and set them in the car then tried to line them up using the SBC/T5 cross members as a guide. I set the engine as far back as I could so hopefully it will all work well.

This is a picture looking down through the shifter hole in the floor.

Another angle.

Looking at the way these shifter attach to that plate, the stick ain't coming up through the hole. But never fear, we have hole expanding technology!

I centered the trans in the transmission tunnel. If the trans were a T5 the shifter bolt to the top of the trans. Do we know if the shift is off to the side on the Top Loader or does it bolt to the side and end up above the trans center on top? I can offset the trans to the passenger side but I would also have to offset the engine as well.

I have a T5 in my 65 Mustang and an automatic in the 68. To tell you the truth, I can't remember how the toploader lined up. It was too long ago, but I'm pretty sure it is centered in the tunnel. And actually that hole doesn't appear to be that far off. I think you'd have to open it up a little, but not much. Here's a pic of a shifter for a toploader on a 66 Mustang.

HP numbers are good and all, but they are like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make if I can still kick your ass?

See post 21 in this thread for the way the shifter will mount.
