Can the solenoid be removed altogether? Is it common to miss the 6th gear gate and engage reverse by mistake? Or can something else be put in its place with a spring that is stiffer than the 5-6 gate, but not overwhelming?

Have you decided whether to replace the tailshaft housing with a modified one? or to use the device that converts VSS pulses to a motor that spins the speedo cable?

Killerdave8813 uses the converter in his car.

I'm going to convert the trans to a mechanical speedo, don't want to run extra wires, and converting isn't much more than the cost of the box.

Anyone relocate the shifter on a stock t-56?

This has taken a back seat until I finish putting the 2 door back together
