Hey Danny, here's some of what you were asking about:

First is the drive by cable throttle body and intake manifold mated to a drive by wire STI engine.  If you want to get a lot more in depth, I have lots of info I can send your way.

Second is the spool locker and backing plate to convert the 5 speed into FWD.

And for the 6 speed.  I'm pretty sure this is where Marty got his from.

Oh, and those two billet pieces on Marty's engine with Torque Solutions written on them...I think it's the air pump delete kit.  I'm not 100% without seeing it, but that would be my guess.

Hope this helps.

Found this comparison of a few different uprights.  The Solstice/Sky is on the far left, C5/C6 Vette one over, and then two different C4 Vette knuckles, and I'm not sure what the tall piece was from.

Also, supposedly the lower ball joint is exactly the same on the Solstice/Sky as on the C5/C6 Vette.

I did find a replacement upper ball joint. The Moog K5208 will fit. It's easy to find and only runs about $25.

Corvette C5/C6 hubs mounted to Solstice/Sky knuckles. 

The Solstice hub to bore clearance is 1/100". Apparently so little material needs to be removed from the bore that there's no worry about weakening the knuckle. Looks like a perfect fit.

Wild, So I wonder if the spline pattern is the same? Sure opens up the wheel choices!

Unfortunately not...

The Vette spline count does not match the Solstice/Sky.  But custom axles need to be made anyway, right?  The wheel choices would be A LOT better than the crappy 5 X 100 pattern.

I know this is an old thread, but here goes...

Could you drill the Solstice/Sky hub for 5x114.3 (aka Ford's 5x4.5)?  There's tons of wheel choices for this bolt pattern.

Yes, we did it. The machine shop charged us 50.00 a hub.
