I am doing a 4.2 swap to 4.0. got the trans and t-case in last night and today when putting in my exhaust manifold i realized that it is hitting my shifter bracket. doing some research i saw the bracket is different on some other models.
my question is i could just cut the bracket to resemble that of the other ones right? i would also reinforce it a little since it would only be held on by one bolt now instead of 3.
or do they sell a bracket somewhere because i like that idea better?
photos attached with the blue mani are mine and the older looking ones are from a 91 4.0 also with the tf999 credit to The_Goob
also i am going to be cutting out the old exhaust don't worry
