4.2 Header with Auto Trans
I've done some looking around a found a post or two with a couple of pics, and it looks like the shifter bracket can be modified to use a header. I cant find any good pics of what was done to modify it though. Anybody done this a got a good pic of the linkage bracket? Thanks.

best pic I have. You can see the bracket is cut just to the rear of the header and I flipped the cut off part and welded it so I could bolt it in a different place. Also had to get rid of the stock plastic bushing that holds the end of the shift rod because it was melting.

You can't see it here but I have a pretty strong spring pushing the rod against the brass fitting.

I think I may have had to reposition the bell crank as well

Actually, found a pic with the spring.

Here's the rest of it. Cut off the collector and welded it on facing front and wrapped the exhust. Borla header

Thanks for the images, looks pretty straight forward. I'd bet I can make something like that work.
