    Re: The Build...

    *UPDATE* 5/2/2012

    Went to shop today. The car is basically almost fully disassembled, the only things still in and on the car are front fenders, hood and motor/tranny

    The suspension is fully apart for the Delrin Bushings, plus it was easier to drop the whole rear cradle since there was nothing left so that is out as well.
    Right now we are fighting with room to run an Oil Cooler with the headers and trying to fit Carbon Fiber brake ducts up front.

    Lots of wiring going on, switch panels being made and fire system getting routed.

    Suspension-wise I am talking with Anze Suspension for a set of custom Penske coilovers with canisters and Hyperco springs (not sure of 2 way or 3 way yet) and also in the process of sourcing all of the parts to swap out the clutch for an Exedy

    Here's a couple of pics showing the replacement of the dash as well as the Momo wheel and Kill Switch. I'm still undecided about putting the center console back in or leaving it out.
    Switch plate for the Coolers and Fire system will mount in place of the Radio/Nav and the Center Net will mount through the center A/C vent locations.

    No clue yet. Way too customizable and too many options I'm gonna let Angelo handle it...

    Chris,

    Did you look at the Katech LS9-X(orR) clutch? It uses OEM disks, with a Katech lightened flywheel. I've had *ZERO* issues with mine. It might be nice to put a part on your car that you know you won't have any issues with, since you are changing so much other stuff all at once.

    Yep, thats my other choice.
    Mike seems to have had nothing but good things to say about his Exedy (Katech's recommendation), plus they ran Exedy's in the grand-am cars back in the day...

    What Steering wheel hub did you go with? Does the common GM adapter have the same spline?

    Thanks,
    John
