Roadster KA24E Swap Trans questions

Recommended Posts

I'm in the process of swapping a 95 truck KA24E engine and 5spd trans with it into my 67 roadster. I see that I'll need to make engine mounts also the tranny doesn't clear the trans tunnel and trans cross member, do people usually cut the top of the trans tunnel to fit the shifter etc.?

Lastly I have a drive shaft from the truck and one for the roadster, it doesn't look like either will work without mod. What do people usually go with there?

I have searched all over for build threads and such but haven't had much luck with this specific swap.

Talk to a drive line shop that specializes is shortening one. See what they recommend for measurements. Probably best to get the engine and trans in first in their final position and then measure between trans and differential.
