    I think so, they had a vette upper shaft just in case. He said it went on with minimal modifications. I'll double check for you.

    Not too long. He just needs to figure out pricing. They won the Grand Am race last weekend and he was busy.

    Re: The Build...

    *UPDATE* 6/25/2012

    Nothing really to see. We were waiting on the coilovers before anything else proceeded. Some small projects have been taken care of. The Clutch, Slave and bleeder are all installed. The driveshaft and full exhaust are all back in and some minor wiring has been completed inside.

    The front upper control arms were successfully modified to allow for greater camber adjustment. Some may remember that GMPP had some that came drilled 4-5mm in from stock. Due to none of those being left the guys at Phoenix enlarged the mounting holes and then machined an oblong spacer to accomplish the same thing. (in talks to have this available to others as well)

    Key thing is Mark from Phoenix figured out the whole Kooks headers and Oil Cooler issue. He modified one of the Moroso type adapters by plugging one of the ports and drilling and retapping a new one 90 degrees away. By doing it this way he was able to run two -12 lines to the oil cooler which is now mounted in the old a/c condenser location. (we removed the a/c system from the car to save weight, so the way he ran the lines may or may not work on a stock vehicle)

    Now that the suspension is made up, once its installed we can fit the carbon brake ducts and scoops to the lower fascia.

    Getting antsy now...
