Finally completed today, only took almost 4 months! I didn't need to grind anything from the shifter nor the rear plate bottoms. After wallowing 2 holes a smidge I rocked the assy. forward, tightened all 4 bolts, and was done. Although I can't drive the car until an exhaust leak is fixed this weekend, I can tell there is a big reach difference with this mod. Well worth the time, effort, and money.
