hey guys just wondering what shifter you guys were using with your 460 c6 swap ! i was wanting to use the stock 4cyl aod shifter but its rod linkage and the arm on the c6 hits the header because it is on the bottom instread of the top like the c4 and aod ?

I'm using a C-4 in my car with a B&M Hammer shifter made for the 87-93 Mustang Console.I also had to buy the C-4 conversion kit,i wander if it would work with a C-6?I could e-mail some pictures i think i have a couple with it in my car.

Later Mark.

that would be great, does yours have a bracket that clamps to the shift linkage that comes out of the trans, also does your point up or down !

the hammer shifter just fits the console. the hammer with a c-4 or c 6 needs the conversion kit and it put a new lever on the trans and points it downward.. and it will clear just fine

i was using a mega shifter




and now going to be running a reverse pattern stick they dont make anymore

If you plan to race your car,just pick a shifter and make it work.Forget the consul and mount it where you can reach it without stretching or changing your driving position.Some classes you have to leave the line with both hands on the steering wheel,so put it where you can lay your hand on it without taking your eyes off the track.

When we first put my car together,I insisted on the "SLEEPER"look,so after MUCH work, we got the stock AOD shifter to work with the reverse pattern,full manual C-6.The first time I raced it I pulled the handle off and the next time I tore the shifter out of the floor.Bought a good shifter and put it where it neened to go.Whats funny is that NO ONE believed my 5.0 badges anyway.
