here are a couple of pictures of the swap...

the first is the interior, that is the m coupe steering wheel, column, pedal cluster, and dash. the turbo wiring harness is everwhere, thats a t-5 tranny with b&m shifter, and a vette seat.

i am going to try to take it for a trip around the block by next weekend...jon

Wow that has to be one of the coolest swaps that I have seen yet, how much did that dash and seats cost you?

jon, I take it you figured out the axle? I was gonna reply "why use a t-tube". I thought w/ that nice setup, just go for a std. axle arrangement.
