well you have to cut the webbing out of the top of the bell housing to clear the starter, and build a special bolt adapter for one bell housing bolt.

As for the tranny in the tube chassis, it is the G50 Porsche tranny.

Well the Tube chassis was sold and the work is being focused on my '88GT. It is getting an "iron block LS6" so to say, and the F40 trans. So I guess the '88 Coupe with the 3" stretch is still going to be built just not as soon as I'd planned, since I no longer have a shop to work in, so work is kinda hard to do.

As for the LS engine it started out as an LM7, bored .118" over, added hypereutectic pistons w/ coated skirts, balanced to within 1/2 gram, 243 casting heads from an '06 LS2 GTO, '06 GTO LS2 intake, heads had full roller shaft mount rockers, and going with a LS4 type pulley setup with custom water pump, not LS4.

I'll start a new build thread once I get started but first I have I have to swap the slushbox out for a stick.
