As Nick said, the shifter is cable operated, so you can put it where you like.
We will be using a '97 NAS style console with an automatic shifter that will look at home. It won't be the NAS shifter as we need the TUTD feature and such for the trans.

Waiting for the new engine and trans to arrive from GM. I'm hoping that won't take too long, then we will begin.

I guess that kills that idea then....

Oh... and I'm running a 1.667:1 as it's a good ratio for 35's when your running std ratio diffs.

Not with this engine. Heck I run a 1.2 with 35s and a TDI.

Interested to see what you guys come up with for a factory look. Can that translate to a 110?

The set up we are doing is going into a NAS 110.

So the console of the 90 can fit in the 110? Looking forward to seeing this! My hesitation with this engine swap was not being able to achieve a factory look.

Not sure if ECR uses the Ashcroft console, but you can read about the 90 versus 110 on their site. http://www.ashcroft-transmissions.co...e-console.html

Auto console is longer than the seat box and hangs over about 3 inches into the second row floor. A sub box underneath makes it match quite nicely. With the autoconsole on the LS motors we install in our Himalayas it looks nice.

Yes, that is what we use.
Works great in a 110. The flip/fold seats still work and all.

Other than the shifter itself being a different model on the LS3, the interior will look just like the ones in the link above.

When using that shifter, how will you know the gear you have chosen?

Photos showing installed console in NAS 110s. We installed a footer to support the back of the console to the seat box. IT is a bit intrusive into the second row, but acceptable evil.

Actually I was thinking my wife would drive a Defender if it had this setup with the auto gearbox. Maybe I will build her a 110 - it could be better and cheaper than the G-Wagon she really wants.

BTW - I am across the street from the red rig. What is Tommy doing to it?

So with the motor / trans and this little controller you posted it can do cruise control?

Where can I find more info on that device you posted please?
