Its only $100 to have your shaft shortened, (I know that is not a manly thought process) Its not a big deal and IMHO, its better to get the shifter where you want it, at least in my case because I didn't want to cut up my interior. Most people who don't move the motor have to notch the trans hump for the shifter on a T5. From there it can take an ape to reach the shifter. I wanted the shifter in the sweet spot - then I cut off the old Toploader Hurst shift handle and drilled it to bolt onto my new trans so for all intents and purposes it looks like my old toploader - even with the vintage knob with the wrong shift pattern. I can even use a stock shift boot so you would never know its a Tremec.
