The cable shift would be perfect for you because it allows very versitile shifter placement and they shift like a damn dream. The one thing I noted about my father's old 996TT is that while it was not as fast as my 930; I just loved beating the shifter into place with zero protest from the trans. Thats is one that can be converted to RWD because it uses a viscous coupler set-up that only acts on rear axle overspin. I really want on for my car.
There's one on evil bay for near ten grand outright buy from CMS

That's way beyond my reach price wise unfortunately. Adapting a cable shift would be easy for me if I could just land a transmission. I'd take one hands down for the right price, I don't mind the hassle in getting the shifter to work

I have a feeling this is going to be the "piece of this puzzle" that holds me up the most
