Far as I know..

The GM tech said yes to the air struts and ELC, and no F'n way to the dash and climate control swap. At least at this time.

Don, are those spring specs correct? I have FE2 rear springs still not in the car, but I wasn't sure if they would be stiffer or softer then the FE1, due to the ELC.

Dude, that thing'* not even an SLE anymore. You currently lose rights, and must promptly put car back together and deliver to my home.

Good luck man, and that car is very quickly turning to my favorite. (venom, you better get on the ball.)

Since Pat is too busy driving the boosted car...I'll update

GM Tech said ok to 8 more wires.. for the HUD. The new dash went in with HUD but no ECC.

Pretty good undertaking in my book. Pat and hisDad deserve a good pat on the back for making it happen..

Now....let'* get some pics with that car'* back end not laying on the ground as usual.
