C4 with a Turbo... What Dipstick?

I was looking last night, as I get ready for my turbo install, and it looks like my trans dipstick is going to run right into the DP.

What are you guys with C4's running for dipsticks?

I have a cheap one and it was just too short and couldnt mount it anywhere. Ended up having to pay for the lokar firewall mount but it is really nice and worked perfect. The one I have might work for you, just with the auto and 03 cobra motor in my notch, everything is tight. Is your case or pan fill? I have a pan fill I can throw in with your kit to see if it would work. Then if you didnt use it, just pick the shipping up back to me? Just let me know if that would help you out

3.27s if I stay with the 28" tire... I've been toying with going back to 17s for the sleeper look, in which case I'd run 3.08s.

I have 3:27's in my car now but really havent gotten to drive it much outside of 1st gear. Just wanted to be sure though that your trans was pan fill correct? If so Ill throw this one I have here in with your turbo kit. I paid $110 almost! You got a steal on yours, I about fell over when they gave me the total at jegs. I was thinking they would be $60-70
