The Transmission I chose is a Tremec TKO-600. It is a 5 speed manual shift transmission with a .064 overdrive and can handle 600 ft. lb. of torque.
The shifter can be moved forward 3 inches simply by rotating the plate.
Below are the transmission mounting brackets that I cut out of mostly 1/4 inch steel.
The square tubing is 1 1/2 inch and 14 gauge steel. I will weld them together as shown below.
And as also below.
After welding and powder coating.
Finally after mounting the transmission, I checked the engine intake manifold for level from front to rear.
