    Nothing has to be done to the actual "floor", just to the opening where the gear shift lever goes through, right??

    Just want to clarify this BEFORE I get halfway thru...

    A prompt response would really, be appreciated as I'll probably start on it tomorrow.

    Thanks,

    BTW Ur PM box is full so I couldn't PM U directly....
    e-mails e-mails e-mails... I leave my PMs full on purpose.
    Anyway - yes, the floor you need to cut out is just the hole in the trans hump. Your original auto shifter opening is not centered correctly for the MKII W-58. Its really no big deal - I just cut it w/ tin snips and folded it back.

    I should have posted this long ago:
    You can see the original location of the forward mounting nuts that are cutted through
    I cut it to clear the rubber boot, and then
    I have pop-riveted a copper bar with threaded holes in place
    to replace the 2 missings one. This way you don't need someone under to hold the nuts.

    yes you can., but you still have to get the hard line from the MC to the sleeve cylinder.

    There is quite a bit more work than that involved since the '84 is an auto and he wants to swap in a 5 speed.

    i thought since he posted in this thread, he MUST read the whole thread which explain you the whole process, agreed is a lot of work if you dont know what are you dealing with.

    The shifter housing and inner rod selector are set further back on top from the MK3's.

    I figured he did no research into the subject at all since it has been stated that there is very little difference between the MK2 and MK3 Supra W58 on this forum many times.
