Can you convert early mk1 shifter to later style

I just broke the end off my shifter cable. It is a 2000 mtx-75 shifter for a zx3. I was wondering if I could convert to the 2002.5+ style shifter.

Not that I am aware of. It was re-designed.

I know that I'd love to find an affordable metal shift tower for mine. I have read somewhere that the tower from the Contour will work in the the 2000-2002.5's, I am not sure about the shifter cables though.....

I did a little research, and it looks like you can grab the shifter, cables, and turret from a later car you can convert it.

I believe you can use an SVT tower for the early cars.
