    Still gathering parts for my cobra t56 swap. I'm on the bellhousing search. Is our tranny fork at the 9 O'clock position or the 7 O'clock position. Looks like the 7 but trying to make sure. Will my stock sn fork work or do I need a fox fork? Thanks.

    it's at the 7 oclock, I'm running a quicktime bell with mine. Stock clutch fork should work fine.

    Ok. Quicktime RM-8031 bellhousing(clutch fork at 7 o'clock)
    03-04 cobra driveshaft with a hybrid u joint to adapt to 8.8 axle
    aje trans mount
    I read about a speedcal. Whats that for? speedo reading? and the reverse lockout. Where's it located and I think I'm supposed to change the spring?

    I also suggest a driveshaft spacer with the cobra driveshaft as it's a bit short.

    the speedcal is so you can get the proper speedo reading, the newer trans use a different style reader in the trans (not a gear) and it reads WAYYY too high with our stock setup.

    the reverse lockout is on the side of the trans, you can either wire it to a 12v source when you want to move it to reverse or just use a little muscle and push it past the solenoid. They also make kits to release it automatically when you're below ~3mph.

    I used a mcloud and had to cut and reweld where the clutch fork goes since they are only set at 9oclock. Quicktime is the only bell housing that has it properly positioned for our cars.
