79 Trans am 301 (work in progress) LS swap n progress
79 Formula 301 (Work in progress)
67 RS Camaro (Work in progress)
See the recurring theme???

I don't know if I am interpreting this correctly.  On p 21 of the options it says that the V02 Super Cooling Radiator is not available with either the 403, WS6 or NA6.  I don't see how this can be.  I ordered it and it came through with no issues.  It is a 403 WS6 car.  I know of other cars with this combination as well.

Yeah, that was incorrect. I think there was a revised page that came out later that the dealers received. There were many with the those options and V02 Cooling.

The order forms are good too.  I don't really have any, but occasionally you'll see one.
