I've just completed an engine swap from a 6 to an 8 and for some reason just assumed that both had C4 gearboxes. Well the six had a borg worner and the floor shifters linkages are on the opposite side from the C4.
I can't use the shifter from the car that had the 8, it had a column shifter.

Can I some how swap the linkages on the bottom of the shifter?

I want to keep the original appearence (XB falcon), so what are my options?

Are the shift linkages the same between the C4 and FMX?

Thanks

Simon

Only one easy way around it - get a shifter for a C4. Anything up to and including XE can be made to fit (assuming you are using a standard XA-XC console you need to grind off the shift indicator support if using XD/XE shifter). These should be pretty common (and cheap).

Cool, should be easy to get. Is the diameter of the t-bars upright the same as the XB or is it thicker?
