last i saw he was having issues keeping the rear down when unloading the suspension at 180.... i would assume that was the reason for it.

I think a front splitter/belly pan will be necessary as well, but only time will tell.

The RKSport wing looks to be as large as this one, but is a lot lower.

^-- This.

The unload is overly violent and terrible, I really can't explain it with words. Just have to experience it to understand I guess.

Panther, I sent you a pm about the swap you did. A bunch of us is300 guys want to do the opposite: take solstice 5spds and mate them to our 2j. There's a ton of us watching this thread to get more details. My tranny is coming out of the car this weekend.

Hah! The grass is always greener!

Hat's off to all you guy for doing these. I'm fascinated by the work you put in and the cool results. Well done and PLEASE keep posting details.

Nickage, maybe you could start your own thread on your conversion? Pretty please?
