Re: 6500 upgrade kit?

There is a kit that has to be purchased - I'm not sure if this is still an option or not.

As far as the upgrade - everything has to be replaced. The only things that are the same for the most part are the power supplies and the chassis. Everything is stripped out and replaced.
