Yup. I think this will be the simplest way to go. The only other option would be to utilize an EVO drivetrain and the purist in me doesn't want to go quite that far. The 523 transmissions are strong enough, the transfer cases seem massive enough. I'll have to figure out what to modify on the K-frame / power steering rack, relocate the gas tank, build a rear end, etc. My 1991 V-6 Daytona which is rusty and basically in shambles will be what I use to practice on.
