Sweet build, subscribed. I have most all the parts to do this same swap, but am planning to just have the corvette torque tube shortened so no adapters.

Seems like the logical approach, not sure why they shorten the TT and then add the metal adapter. There must be a reason though.

Hmmm... we have a Tremec T56 6-speed kit for those 928's equipped with a Renegade LS or SBC swap; and we lengthen the TTube and driveshaft to get rid of those adapters when we do it. We are making one of these for Blagave right now.

Hi Carl,

I am confused then. Travis sent me the metal adapter that bolts on the Bell housing....is this wrong?

SpearLazyT....just spoke with Carl and my setup is as you indicated.....torque tube to bell housing. Travis at renegade missed something along the way. I will be removing the adapter plate.

The bracket setup you are referring to is used on the F-body cars. 1998-2003? Camaro/Trans-am etc.

If you needed it. Best of luck with your build!

Thank you for the information. I was told the same thing from a friend and ordered the bracket for both the Alt. and pwr steering from Ici billet

Pulled motor out to remove bell housing and adapter. Going to send back to Renegade, since Carl is making the toque tube bolt on to stock bell housing, which came with the trans I purchase.
I installed new hi torque starter and finished up the dust shield..

Very nice! Am considering the rear wiper delete, but am trying to avoid removing the glass and my sheet metal guy is concerned about welding heat impacting the adhesive. Thoughts? I see you have removed your back glass.
Am also considering the door lock delete, but thin aluminum..

I am by no means a body guy, in fact this is the second time I have ever welded up holes on a body and yes, to much heat will cause distortion in the metal or maybe in this case melting the rubber adhesive. A positive note with mig spot welding, is you can make a quick tack, wait a minute and do another which wont add to much heat, it will take longer, but you should be able to do it. When I fill those holes, I will pay attention to the amount of heat in the area by the window and let you know.

I have been talking with Tony (Peachy) and will be doing similar deletes. The aluminum
will be tricky, but at least with tig welding you can direct the heat and adjust the ramp up.
