    Thanks for Aceshigh for making the suggestion to add this topic.

    This is the place for people who want to retrofit all sorts of high tech goodies into our beloved Second Generation Camaros.

    Having done the LS1 / T56 swap myself (into the 71Z shown in my avatar) I can tell you that it really is the best of all worlds: good power right out the box (without almost unlimited potential depending on mods), good fuel economy, smooth operation, and all wrapped in the prettiest sheet metal ever to roll off an assembly line.

    Would this also fall under the category of custom fabrication?

    Well, if the custom fab is needed to accomplish a high tech retro fit (e.g. crossmember mods for a T56 tranny) then it would seem to be appropriate to post that in here.....but nobody will haul you off to shoot you at dawn (except for Eric, maybe) if you posted something like that in the transmissions area either.

    Kickass!!!!! I've been wanting this for awhile now, but I kept forgetting to suggest it. Thanks Mike.

    Ya didn't care for the "Modern" name ??? Sooookay, I'm just happy this is here now so we can get some "how to" stickies and a list of members who have done these things with their networked resources compiled.

    Very nice!

    Edit: Is this strictly drivetrain?

    I don't think it needs to be strictly drivetrain stuff.....a broader mandate may include things like Global Positioning Satellite speedometers, fancy stereo stuff, satellite radio, etc. Let's see what happens.
