Question about SE stick

Since I was completely ignored in one of the stickied threads, here’s hopes to someone answering my question…
Hmm, I took another look at the guts of the SE on the first page of a stickied thread and was wondering, if I were to put an LS-32-01 in replacement of the stock joystick, would the 5 Pin Connector be able to reach all the way to the other side where the prongs of the LS should be, seeing that I would have turn the PCB 90 degrees.

And if it can’t reach, is there a 5 Pin Connector extension that I could purchase and if ya where?
Thanks in advance.
