Ran in to a snag...

CTSV 6L90 tail shaft is longer than 6L80 SS, I knew that.

But what I didnít know was the cross member / trans support bolt holes are farther rearward than a ZL1 6L90.

So now we got to fab up a mount and my driveshaft safety loop probably wonít work with this setup.

My shop guy resolved the snag...

So I donít do anything half ass lol
Iím over at a buddyís and we are gonna cut your transmission/mounting plate on his plasma table so itís 100% and if anyone needs one later down the road they will be available.

Probably spent way more time than I should have on this but it fits beautifully and it is serviceable so it uses the stock mounts no modifications.

If something breaks it can be replaced and this piece swaps right over.

So I had problems swapping the cat / catless pipes on / off for emiss test because they slip in and theyíre such a tight fit.

So I decided Iím going to weld in some V Bands to make it easier.

Got the idea from my friend Mike that has the CTSV.

He kept having exhaust leaks at the connections, so he got rid of the clamps for V Bands.

Will have pictures when itís all done.

I have to pass emissions testing every year before I can renew my license plate and registration.

Damn that's worse than California! Most places here is every other year. Luckily I live in a county where you only smog it when you put it in your name.
