Default Shifter plate modification after short shifter installation (pics inside)

Ok all these threads about wether or not you need to modify the plate around the shifter assembly got me and dale (dbrier) to take some pics of out mod job so i thought i'd post them here

First we took a buzzsaw and cut off the upper right portion of the plate ring, then used a dremel tool to smooth out the rough edges so it wouldn't cut into the rubber boot seal

Here's just to illustrate the cut (we actually cut it out further to make more room for the shifter linkage):

Here's a pic of the rubber boot seal without the ring plate. I noticed driving around without the metal plate, a lot of underbody wind noise generates

Now putting the modified plate back on (notice we cut a little bit more from the plate):

Here's a pic of it installed on, and note where the rubber part is not covered by metal in the upper left corner, there is still a little seal leak here:

Just a closer shot of how the shifter linkage pushes up against the rubber seal with the short shifter:

Hope this helps!

I did the same thing except I only cut out a traingular peice. So there was o hole left over. But if you have the Cobb it;s a must. My linkage has a groove from the plate hitting it.

On mine, I didn't need to cut the corner out, the plate is completely symetrical so I just rotated it 180 degrees and cut off one of the metal tie downs.

Hope this helps.
