yes it does,i actually took it apart again because it was an inch too far forward. The new setup will be even simpler, simply cut the stock shifter holder and put it down on posts, no S bracket needed like i welded up. Still have the weld the pivot to turn around though. i'll post more info once i get it working nicely

one side effect i did notice is that the shifter gates are slightly paralleogram instead of H pattern, gate 1 is closer to 3 than gate 2 is to 4. but that is barely noticeable.

well when you get it all cleaned up, have you considered selling these adapters?

EsTomax that looks pretty good! We have the same shifter placement issues in the e36 chassis with this engine and trans combo.

so this is what i ended up with and happy with. i forgot to take exact measurements before installing it again so i'll try to get some numbers. basically though i had to extend the u joint two inches from the sleeve that the spring pin attaches to the shifter input shaft.

I appreciate your efforts dude great idea, just needs a little finesse in the visual department. Other than that you've solved the ubiquitous "too long tranny" issue

sorry been putting off playing with the car for a bit, I took some measurements and they all ended up being right on inch marks. it is not super important to be down to the 1/16th accurate while making this, as the u joints allow lots of play. the materials can all be had at home depot too lol. 1/2 inch hollow steel rod and I think 1/2 inch square aluminum tubing.

remember if you have a 95-97 5 speed with the tripod shifter you already have the "6 speed tunnel" in your SC.
