Hey mate, which state are you in? Your best bet is to ring up your RTA or equivalent to find out for sure. I'm interested in your motivations. Wouldn't the removal of the centre console make the interior of the car look ugly?
it would look odd because you have the selector gate 2" higher than the floor.So you will need to manufacter a cover for that keeping in mind that you MUST by law keep the gear selector light operational. You will also have to grind off the bracket that is spot welded to the floor for the rear screw mounts..You will not be able to run the rear vents so you will have to block them off in the dash. Big job and the factory carpets are notched out so you will have to 'patch' it in some similar carpet..
Just go to an auto carpet place, and get some new carpet... This should only cost you about $100. When you buy it, it won't have any holes cut in it, so it'll cover up the rear mounting bracket. You'll need to cut a hole for the gear selecter and make a cover for it (or buy another shifter (i.e. B&M)). And just use some duct tape to cover the vents.
As for the road noise, get some good quality sound deadening and it will eleiminate most of it. The hardest part will be the noise coming from around the gear selecter...
