I believe that under the dash my car is the same as yours considering that any mustang dash will fit my car, but IDR what I had to do to the assembly to support the EPS unit. I’m thinking you don’t want mine back in exchange. In reality, I’m considering making my own pedal out of bar stock, and building my own custom hydraulic system instead of relying on that pain in the ass quadrant. Just gotta get the dash out and start “cyphering”.I do.... but its in my car, I would need a auto assembly to replace it with.
Could a kit like this be used/Replicated?I believe that under the dash my car is the same as yours considering that any mustang dash will fit my car, but IDR what I had to do to the assembly to support the EPS unit.

So...you’re saying you want me to come down there and help you pull an engine in exchange for a set of pedals?Well guys, I may be the 'between' mike and steve.
I happen to still have that parts car that steve already has a good bit of the parts from. And it just so happens that I could use some company pulling my engine out far enough to swap an oil pan gasket.
Just thinking out loud here.
LOJ has some very nice shifter pieces for using your trans behind an LS in the 3X0s. Might be worth a look or call.Doing my homework,...it appears that I have two shifter options with this transmission:
1. I can buy a couple of different “ kits” that include the shifter, relocation bracket and hardware...
2. I can buy the shifter i want ( that costs the same as the entire kit above) and MAKE the relocation bracket.
Both kits look wimpy to me, and the mount location is fixed. Wherever the shifter ends up i’ll have to live with it.
If I buy any of the standalone shifters out there, I’ll have to make the mount, and adapter to get it to work, but the shifter will be exactly where i want it. And While that doesn’t look too difficult, it is still has potential to create some bind/ or hard shift as a result.
Ive already committed to a Collins adapter and shifter. The instructions that i’ve read state that their shifter doesn’t have a reverse lockout like every other one seems to have. Their justification for which is stated as “ it’s impossible to put the thing into reverse at speed anyway”. This kinda Makes sense to me.
So that will be one less adjustment I’ll have to make.
They also have a disclaimer stating that you will have a learning curve if you are used to the old shifter pattern, because the newly shortened travel distances are much closer together. Again, it kinda makes sense to me as I have no reference standard for what the regular pattern felt like anyway.
I guess we’ll see won’t we?
Since i haven’t tried to hide my research from Kate, she asks me why I’m changing the transmission out again..I say because Im considering converting to a 6 speed...
“Considering, or Doing”? she asks..
“Well...I have to consider something it before doing it”. I reply.
I get a pair of rolled eyes from her.
One one hand, after 35 years, it kinda sucks that a person gets to know you so well that there are no secrets.
on the other hand, if the only penalty you take for being read like a book is a set of rolled eyes, where’s the problem?
