    7" stretch need?

    Finallly the engine is out and the car is ready to stretch. I realise the E-break cable will be too short after the stretch, dose anyone know what can I do? e.g. another car's cable? also is there anything else I will need to replace?

    If I remember right, you can use camaro E-brake cables. You will have to either build new brackets for the shift cables or order to length, add to radiator hoses, lengthen brake hard lines, and may have to add to wire harness.

    If you reroute the e-brake cable to a straight line it should be really close. It it still is too short, move the brake handle mounts rearward until it fits.

    the 5 speed tranny has the longest shift cables. I have 7.5" stretch on my Lambo no problem. but I'm not sure if they'll fit to 4 speeders.
    you can check Daryls cable extension on his web Kit car online. The Bull used his E barake cable on his 25th,he just reroute the cable. his is also 7.5"longer.
