Looking forward to seeing what shane does with his kit.  He was actually there at the half mile event when me and David were testing the very first super 8.8 swap. 

 

Now jason, shane and David all have the diff setup.  All 3 of them have different generations of it but they're basically the same swap.

Going to point out that jason hit a personal best of 9.88 @ 137.8 with his turbo 4.8 using cheap neon coilovers and his super 8.8 swap kit which has NO issues holding down the power.

 

The second thing worth mentioning is now the latest version of the kit allows moving the wheel back up to 3/4 rearward.

 

This is dependent on what you are willing to do up top to match, i designed and now offer conversion tops that move the shock back if using cheap coilovers like jason did.

 

Using other brands of coilovers you can redrill the shock tower and rotate the camber plate if you like to squeeze a little more.  3/4 is about the limit because after that you run into the sheetmetal.

Can you post pics showing what has changed in the kit that allows the rear wheels to move backward?

The tube section that the has the 5/8 bolt going through it is shorter by 3/4 and i now include that 3/4 long section for people to place in front of, or behind the upright piece.  Or section it and space it exactly to your liking, depending on how your shock upper setup is.  Moving the wheel back requires moving the strut top back as well to prevent binding.
