Thanks. That boot looks taller than mine. Do you know which Hurst boot is that one? They have several.

Edit: if that is the large Hurst boot (#1147494), did you have to drill new holes?

I like how this one looks and it may be tall enough to work with my setup. I found an "open package" one in Amazon for 1/2 price so I got it. I wonder if due to the larger size it still is able to create a good watertight seal with the floor. I may be able to use a cheap leather one underneath to create a watertight seal and then the Hurst over for the looks.

BTW, which Hurst shifter are you using? I have the Hurst 5388022.

The shift rod in my TKO for some reason is 1.25" forward from the center of the tunnel opening. Was yours centered? Mine was an auto and I assume that the tunnel opening is located in the same place for auto or manual.

I replaced my 351 Cleveland with a 9 1/2" deck height Dart based 427 so new mounts were fabbed initially due to height (taller deck and an Air Gap RPM) and angle issues but also to move the motor/trans rearward so it was right for driving. [Image: c3c7bYs.jpg]

I ended up getting the Hurst super boot. I found a 1/2 price deal through the Amazon Warehouse. The listing said that it had a small damage, but it was in its original sealed package like new. Because the super boot has a much larger base, I used a Scott Drake "leather" boot underneath to cover and "seal" the opening in the tunnel. The Scott Drake is not that nice and not of too good of a quality. The Hurst super boot looks great and due to its size it fits the adapter I made to relocate the shift lever. An advantage of the super boot is that it completely covers the console's hole so no need for the stock plastic cover. A disadvantage is that since it is taller, it partially covers the clock, especially when you are in the "up" gears (1st, 3rd, 5th).
BTW, the super boot is just placed over the carpet and held in place by the console. No screws used.

This is the Scott Drake "leather" boot that I used to seal the opening:

And here are couple views of the Hurst:

I can't tell well from your picture, but could you please measure the length of your shifter. When it is in neutral what is the horizontal distance from the bottom of the ball to the console? 
Thank you.

Sure, I'll go snap a couple pics. I'm not sure what shifter arm I used, as I bought a couple different ones and picked one that felt the most comfy.
