This part doesn't look all that complicated to make, is there any trick to it? Can the stock transmission bracket be easily modified?
Has anyone built one before? I'm trying to decide if I should build it myself or just by one from west coast fiero? $120 seem a bit much for such a part.
What do you suggest I do?
Cheers and thanks.

No trick to it, just takes a little time in figuring out how you want to do it. If you do a search you will find some really simple examples and some examples of nicer ones, all seem to function well. I think it took a total of 1 hour for me to make mine after looking at some pics here on the forum...

to make one, use the lever from the trans, turn it around so it points at the engine. grind off the tit on the end. See how much the cable moves. pick a point on the lever that will give you all the gears with the movement that the cable has. put a bolt in the lever for the shift cable to hook to. Next use the bracket from the trans you are using. cut off the part the fwd cable hooked in to. remove the part of the fiero cable bracket that holds the cable. put it on your cable. it should end up some place on the new bracket. Hold it so it all is in line, mark it. Take the parts off, have them welded. remember, park, R, N and D are the most important. Took us a little over 1 hr to do it at home, but I have a welder.

I am still running mine with the shift pattern backwards. I just haven't gotten around to making something. People do seem to notice too when they look into the car. 1st question they ask is, Why is your car in 1st.
