This swap was pretty easy. No tunnel mods required other than covering the old hole and cutting a new hole where the new stick sits. I'm using a GPS speedo so the speedo gear issue does not apply. Put a very beefy new Cosmo Racing (Camaro Racing Spec Short shifter Firebird/Camaro Z28 T5 Transmission 83-03 Strong Shaft) short throw shifter on it and brass shifter fork guides (siliconed in place). Drilled mount holes in the motor mount, a bit inboard from the Mustang setup and cut off a mount knob off the bottom. I was amazed at how strongly built the '93 S10 tailstock is compared to the 1987 Mustang WC T5 unit. I rotated the stick in the shifter base plate 180 degrees so it leans toward the steering wheel and a little forward. Nice to have it closer and at a more natural upright position.
