Bigger Than A Bread Box
View of transmission in car, looking into back seat floor area. Rear of car is to the left. Note that a hole was cut in the body to allow the transmission to fit. The T5 is 6.5" longer than a Saginaw. Shift linkage and support strut rod for shifter are visible on the right.
The linkage is on the top side of the floor in this photo. An under-the-floor linkage is also possible.
