[Zmagnette] 4 synchro MGB trans in ZB

Even without overdrive, the remote shifter on the MGB 4-sync sits high and your going to have to substantially reshape the transmission tunnel to make it fit.  That's a ferocious price to pay for a synchronized first gear.  If you're going to that much trouble, you might as well go five-speed.
