The 200C was recommended by D&D as the easiest to fit without a bunch of body clearancing. Trans with OD will be nice but will require significantly more changes. Longer means more difficulty in getting the drive shaft to line up without shimming it down more, bigger trans body means more tunnel mods, maybe cutting. Don’t know about the linkage but it will surely be tighter. Will the console fit, don’t know. Get a scrap trans cheap at a junk yard, gut it, keep the linkage detents inside, bolt it up to a engine block, drop it in and out and start checking.

I think someone here has done it and can advise better than me, or check the 6163Skylark site too.
