    It shouldn't go away, it is a good alternative (and all the hard work is done)

    This post pretty much sums it up..........this diff swap option is not going away. One guy even said he refused to let this project die, it won't die...it's not even sick.
    I will try to spend more time here on the forum with updates, in the mean time, if anyone is more serious about this swap just than reading about it please give me a call.
    We are about to ship two complete kits, so soon we will have feedback from two more people on how the 8.8 performs.
    Our phone number is 503-316-1811 We're here M-F, 8-5 Pacific Time.

    Your website doesn't appear to show all your V products. What's not on the site that you've got available for the first gen V? I'm interested in a couple things.

    I have a ton of stuff about half ready to make available to you guys. Our rear toe rod kits have been in a box half done for way too long, need to get on to the control arm bushings, I need to get the subframe bushings in to production, sway bar bushings have been asked for, and I need to make new molds for the lower rear shock mounts.
    I've been pretty focused on the 8.8 rear diff swap lately, while it's a lot less than it was I still have a bit of wheel hop and some clunking going on. I know the clunking is not from the 8.8, I think some of the noise is coming from the drive line and the dual mass flywheel. I've ordered a new drive line from DSS which was shipped last week and should arrive this week. I'm hoping it will cure some of the clunking and vibrations I get at highway speeds. I think most of my issues are from the dual mass but the drive line needed to be done and tested anyway since it is now part of the 8.8 rear diff swap kit.
    There have been a few "behind the scenes" projects as well, built a hot tank to clean the 8.8 housings before they go to sand blast and powder coat, the lathe fried a relay...had to diagnose that and find a relay that would do the job (without a wiring diagram), and the list goes on.
    Let me know about parts you'd like to see that I didn't mention above.

    More parts are on the way, I'll keep paddling, Max

    My wife's voice "you need to focus"..."you have to many half finished projects around here", then another "crisis" takes place and I have to drop and run.

    I'm interested in the coupler, cradle bushings (2007), toe rod bushings, shock bushings, rear trailing arm bushings.
