There is no product to make your carpet conform to any radical changes you make. If you only change the tunnel a tiny bit, you can steam the carpet to make it conform, but that will only help if it is an extremely minor change. If you change the transmission tunnel more dramatically, you will need to cover the tunnel first and then have to cut out around it near the bottom of the tunnel and edge the carpet where it meets the tunnel. To do that you will need to get some of the carpet in cut yardage form. One yard will more than cover the tunnel, and any place that sells you a carpet kit can also sell you cut yardage of the same carpet.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.

I made a molded carpet for my trunk area. I bought a carpet iron from home depot for 80 bucks and roll of seaming tape. Took me many hours, but looks just like a molded carpet. Tape was cheap. Like 8 bucks for 50 ft roll. Bought bentley carpet. Backing is soft for carpet. Unlike most carpet that I've used before. Have some pics if you would like to see how it looks.
