After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

The time spent is well worth it when you can say you own/drive one of the baddest 9's on the planet.
Kevin, did that 18.5" dimension account for the CV adapter location?
I will be cutting a set of axles soon for another 928 Z06 trans swap and I can trim a set of those if I have to as they are about 19"

As far as hours go to many. But the r and d takes a lot of time.when I am done I figure with all parts and supplies needed and working on it 8 hours a day you could do this swap in a couple of weeks or less.best guess on hours would be 300 plus.

Yes, the R&D process takes a lot of time. Bolt on and go projects are much easier. I don't know how much time I spent on my straight six project, didn't keep track of time. But nothing was bolt on and go on that project. Well, the engine could be bolted directly to the bell housing, but apart from that, every bit had to be special fabricated.
I'm working on a 25 foot boat, which I'm restoring from A-Z and making changes here and there. That project started 10 years ago. Until now I have spent more than 3300 hours on that (write down every day how much work has been done). When I started that project, I never expected it to be that comprehensive. But well, projects takes time......

Well here is my rendition of what is needed. Everything fits like a glove.
Next is couple the motor to it and fab the trans mount. You can see in the pic that the trans will hang off that tube, it will be just a few inches towards the TT. I am very happy with the fitment.

Thank you. Well had a good day on the car. Motor and Trans together for the first time in the car. The drive line fits so nice. I have it sitting with in a hair in all directions. Dropped the gas tank in and no clearance issue there. The only issues I see are one cross member under the hood and I need to adjust where the shifter sits. I took a ton of pics and will post next week.
