Yeah, it should, but I'd give Mazdatrix a call and ask them (mazdatrix.com). This shouldn't be in this section though, try the 1st gen section next time.

EDIT: No wait, it shouldn't. The 79-80 trannys were way different now that I'm actually thinking. In fact, I know that it will not fit unless you want to stick your arm about a foot forward into the center console to shift. Sorry about that.
