    or just buy the rod bracket that omni potent makes and sells and keep your rod shifter!

    I'm unaware of anyone rod shifting a 523/568 yet. The kit you mention is for the 520/555s.

    I would use the 523 over the 525. I would rather have a 520 or 555 in there so that I could keep it rod shifted and not cut holes in the floor though.

    Go with a 523, they are a blast to drive. Just knock out the hole where the automatic transaxle shift cable would have gone through and use the rubber seal from an automatic car shifter cable to cover the hole in the firewall. The cable shifter in my Laser is precise and has very low friction. A bit of work will need to be done to secure the new style shifter to the floor without sitting up too high. If it is all done correctly it will be difficult to tell that it has been swapped without looking under the car or popping the hood.

    yup. 523. It's a little work, but well worth it. The only way you can tell in my Charger is the knob.

    you can leave the 525 in there... if you know how to rebuild a trans on the side of the road or get chep/free towing.

    youll be much happier with the 523 for sure
