Edit: I was just reviewing this with my design guy and he said that he is pretty certain the trans will have to be removed from the car to complete the install. This is due to the length of the bolts that join the transmission together and they will most likely not clear the trans tunnel. The prototypes were installed with the transmission out of the car. We will verify these details.
Pending how the stock gear tranny does and the conclusion of how involved the installation is (might just have to wait for a new clutch for me to install these) I'm in. Excited to hear more information as it comes along.
