You displayed a new automatic transmission that I assume you will be using, correct? If not already planned for you will need a different cross-member as the one in your picture is for a manual transmission.
Thank you for notifying me about it. So get one.

Here some pictures of front disc brake conversion kit.



Unfortunately the caliper is installed in opposite way as per the following article from SUPER CHEVY mag.

The position of the caliper will be corrected soon.

Looks like you are coming along on your project :) I'm removing my sub frame and detailing this fall.

Did you end up going with the 496 rotating assembly for your big block ?

Seems i seen you do a build on a chevy truck a while back.  If your the same person then you did a great job on that truck and i have no doubt that your camaro will come out great. Keep up the great work!
