Default Shifter turret moved after car fell while jacking up

Curious if anyone has any advice or knowledge on this. I was jacking up my car and my jack slid and hit the crank pully (look letís not get into it- I bought quick jacks now lol). The main damage seems to be the shifter turret looked like it ďfell downĒ and shifted to the left. I replaced the motor mounts since they needed it anyway, stock to innovate mounts. Didnít move the turret. Undid the ppf but then trans didnít want to move left/right but did correct the up/down. I did also do the clutch recently. Looking at where they meet, there is no visible gap indicating that maybe a bolt gave out and caused the tilt. I might try again later with a air ratchet to confirm theyíre all snug, but I donít think thatís the cause/issue. Looking online it looks like it could possibly be the PPF bent when the engine got hit by the jack? Is there any easy way to tell other than finding a new PPF?

You probably need to do a PPF alignment after replacing your motor mounts. Look it up, it's pretty easy.

I'd be more concerned about the weight of the car suddenly landing on the crank pulley! Make sure it's still straight and true with the motor running.

Thinking out loud a bit: but also, since I did unbolt the trans from the PPF and it didnít want to go into the center, that should rule out the PPF right?
