chassis needed some cutting to fit the body, so i can say 100% that the naerc  and ASCC chassis will not work on the reventon without some rather serious modifications. i will be doing some welding this weekend and ill snap some pics of the chassis.

Let's see some pics of that chassis! :D
If I don't have time to do it right, when will I have time to do it over?

Most of my high end OEM parts (batwings, fuel cells, body parts etc.)have come from the UK and they shipped them to me within 3 days and cheaper than USA any day of the week.

Looking forward to following another rev build. I am in Canada also, and have never thought of looking at the UK ebay. I always thought shipping would be so much more.

Good luck and post often  ::thumbup

Nice tip farmer. I wouldn't have guessed that.

I know Renegade Hybrids have done the LS to Boxster also and reportedly the Boxster transmission holds up well. http://www.renegadehybrids.com/
If I don't have time to do it right, when will I have time to do it over?

ive spoken to eric (aeauto) and he will be doing a adaptor plate/ clutch setup. that is one thing that i think i would mess up if i did it by myself.

one thing that i have noticed about searching for parts, is that i search ebay.uk, for some reason i found that transmission and had it shipped from the uk to my door for half of what it would cost to buy from the us and ship it up hear. so as a rule of thumb for me i look at ebay.com and ebay.uk before i buy something

Wow, that is going to be a nice build.  Do you have any information on how to do the LS1 to the Boxster transmission?

i have decided my next build will be a reventon on a tube chassis. I drove down to see Rodney and grabbed up an ASCC chassis from him and on my way back i stopped off in Michigan and had a look at a reventon body and make an order for it, As some of you guys know i prefer to meet in person and see the product first hand.

this being said  these are some of the key things i plans to have in the car
LS1 motor mated to porsche boxter 6 spd manual transmission, functional batwings, custom dished wheels.  the colour of the car will be matte white, with mate black accents, interior will be two tone grey and white, with suede
 
i will post up some pics of the chassis when i am able to get it pulled inside an cleaned up.
