Replacing Doug Nash with Richmond

Having decided to update my 88 Corvette's transmission to a Richmond six-speed overdrive, I have three basic questions. Anyone in the community have personal experience with this enterprise, how large a hole must be cut into the floor cavity to gain access to the new shifter, and for this old man's "street rod" which first gear selection would you prefer for a country boy who seldom drives in the city, 4:06 or a 3:27 (all other gears the same except second). I have to much money, time, and love for the car to sell it and no more strength in my back to keep pulling the Doug Nash! Thanks! Garrett

I would go for the 3.27 low. I have used a richmond 5 ( the 6 is the same gears with an overdrive added) in my 77 vette with a 3.70 and 3.08. Works well with both. I have used it in my camaro with 2.75, 3.23 and 4.11 gears. With the 4.11 it smokes the tires with any throttle. They were only in together while I was switching the car over to a powerglide as it has become a full time strip car. The 4.06 gear would be too low in my opinion.
