Moved to the Technical Chat area


The bezel and shifter surround would be the obvious differences, now as far as the electronics matching up I'm not even sure about that.

There are so many other things they could change it's not funny. Does later shifter sit higher in car as relative to trans? How about further forward or back? How does it mount to sheetmetal? The cable attachment parts could change. Length of shifter coming out bottom could change. On and on..............they could bolt right in or not, you're gonna be our guinea pig maybe............no one knows all the things that can swap from earlier to later years, and ATX shifters hardly ever get swapped, since they rarely break.
