The ECM is under the dash on Mary's Camaro along with the fuse box. I had to pull the fuse box out & fix a pulled out fuel pump wire when it wouldn't start the first time. Banging around under the dash isn't fun as I get older!

Sometimes I'll waste hours just looking at something trying to figure out the best location as far as accessibility, aesthetics, and function. Can be quite the pain in the ass.

So, here is THE most important questions of any build, what size and model of tires? Why not bigger and/or stickier?

The "stickier" portion is regulated by the 200 treadwear limit for Optima.

If you wanted to push against the status quo you could run the Dunlop Direzza Star Spec in 275/35/18 on all 4 corners, have a more balanced setup because of the square sizes, and you'd have more grip than a set of tires with with 130-160mm more total section width.

With the possibility of ABS on this car - what about using some of your GM access and add some accelerometers in there and gen up a stabili-trak system like the vette/caddy product.

99% sure it's lighter Jeff, but may not be significant savings; you can pick that thing up w your pinky. The opening is wider to support their wider radiator...

No matter what Mark decides, it will be awesome! I think the best part of this build is that its a 67' NOT a 69'. Hopefully will see some of his engineering marvels for us 67' camaro lovers.

We're saying the same thing Jeff. 12 lbs vs 17. 100lbs = - .10. Not significant, but light enough to pick up w your pinky.

Would not worry to much about the weight savings guys. I know for certain there is not one of the fancy aluminum rad. support going in this car from what I've seen. Hopefully we can get some progress pic's of bodywork posted tonight. We have made great progress so far. Joe
