Power seats

Is there a way to make or change the Passenger side seat to a power seat?

Not right now but FBodFather confirmed they are working on that (maybe for the 2011) and there will be a retro-fit kit available when they do. Probably not going to be cheap though.

Hopefully once the retro kit is out a 3rd party will make a similar one for a lot less.

Can I use a base power seat from a driver side to convert?

I would think that you could use a driver's power seat to make a power passenger seat from.
It won't be easy, because everything will be backwards (left side versus right side) but I would think that it's possible.

I have no tech data to prove this, just assumptions on my part!

I see the GTO had power seats I wonder if the track would work for the pass side?

Doubt the GTO..maybe the G8 if it had a power passenger seat..since that's a closer comparison.
