it came to a stand still Being away at college gives me like no time to get home and get work done. Also college has emptied my pockets so hopefully once college is over on May 19th ill get back to work on it.

As to where I am, I am currently in the middle of fabricating the clutch slave cylinder mount since the new bellhousing is made for a mechanical setup. Once i have that fabricated ill be able to determine the correct sized throw out bearing, and then finally toss the motor in the vette and see if i can catch up to my brother on his swap

Thanks for the info

Well, that's conditional. Any original stock transmission should get a strong rebuild for sure.

Yes the swap can be done with the 700r4, raidmagic's LS1 is currently running a rebuilt 700r4... well for now, that could change any day I'm sure.

Very cool, good creative thinking.
