MAYBE. Guess its all in how forgiving your motor mounts are. Could possibly loosen them up as well.Thanks. I think if I take out the cross member I might be able to lower the tranny enough to get the shifter out the top. I really don't want to take the tranny out again. I would maybe remove it from the bell housing and slide it back a little but not a full removal. Maybe I would open up the tunnel hole a little. I already did so maybe it would work.
