Here is another option. They can convert a S10 tailshaft housing to accept a cable drive setup

I have a TVR Cerbera with a WC T5 in it. In my opinion, the T5 is really crap. Shifting is bad (especially reverse and 5th) it is noisy and prone to fail (OK, the gearbox is at its limits in a Cerbera).

My old Aston from the 70ies had a 5-speed ZF, this was precise, smooth an quick to shift. But hey, what shall I moan, there are not many options left to convert our Elan's for modern traffic. Go for it :wink:
