Cadillac Northstar Help!!!

I have been told that there is a roadster/hot rod shop in Southern California that sells parts for the Northstar engine to convert it to rear wheel drive for my new roadster. Does anybody know how to find them? Thanks

Hey Bob-
I've seen this conversion once before, but I'm curious on how you are planning on handling this coversion. The one I saw actually had the Northstar mounted in the rear. I did a search on google and found this in case you just wanted to turn the motor under the hood and run a drive line to the rear.
Here's the site: http://members.tripod.com/~grannys/enginescadillac.html
And a quote from it:
Quote:
Can be converted to RWD by using a 700R4 transmission from a 60 degree V-6 powered S-10 or Camaro and welding in a special pocket for the starter.
Sorry, I couldn't find anything about making it a rear motor/drive conversion, but I hope this helps a little.
