[Drosophila] UAS vector without 5'UTR

We would like to compare two different promoters' ability to drive 
expression of a specific, defined transcript.  We have cloned our test 
gene promoter and 5'UTR, up to the ATG into pCaSpeR-AUG-betaGal, and can 
assay lacZ expression.  Now we want to express exactly the same 
transcript, but using Gal4/UAS instead.  pUAST and pUASP both have 
5'UTRs included upstream of the MCS.  Does anyone know of a UAS vector 
that could be used to clone directly at the transcription start site?

Here's hoping...
