So what are you gonna do with the column shift? Swap the column with one from a floor shift model? Or hack the shifter off and fill the column with something? It'd be quite odd if you just kept that shifter there.

This will clear a lot of hurdles when it comes to modifying americasfuture's car since he won't be losing so much through the transmission, and besides, if he breaks his engine, it is much cheaper to fix too

i wish i had the bank to do that. but for now im rolling witha 9.25in clutch/flywheel. i am going to look into getting a 9.5in or 9.75in set up for my boosted power later. maybe a stage 2 if i can find it. if not, i am going o have a custome one made sumwhere. thatll cost me sum bones. cant wait to get it done, im going to run it out at the track and see if i can pull off beter than a 17.2(best run witha bad axod and stripped interior, 3205lbs)

Will you need to modify the ECU after everything is hooked up?

Only if he wants to make the CEL go away. The ECU won't see the transmission and most definitely throw a code or two or a few, and you'll have to leave the netral safety switch in the drive position to overcome the P/N rev limiter, and have the neutral safety circuit connected to the clutch pedal to allow the car to start when the clutch is depressed.

Or you could just get a chip.

I can't remember anymore.
I had bought it because i was going to install the engine from my 92 Taurus into my 1990, they have different hardware so I needed a computer that would run the engine but not hte transmission (axod is not electronic). I payed $75 canadian. make me an offer, I had my 1992 running with it no problem.
