Yes ...............Is 40mm shorter the measured number,
I measured between Bell Housing Face and Trans Flange Face, with straight edges across both .........
The 722.6 is 40mm less than the 7G Tronic, so that means front half of the Prop needs to be shortened 40mm.
Trans Mounting Saddle also sits farther back, I will modify a spare one once the 7G Trans is in as it may need some height adjustment too to preserve the Propshaft Alignment
Shifter Rod length is slightly different too I haven't bought another yet because I'm certain I have a couple somewhere 🤣
Finally, the Cooler Pipes are different at Bellhousing end, brass hydraulic compression couplers will make a nice job, and can also be easily reversed should it not play nice
