Ehh, I don't think you can do that. The optical drive is hooked up with what appears to be a surface-mount Hirose board-to-board connector. You're not going to be hooking an SSD up with that.
Basically, I'm looking to replace my 2011 MBP's optical drive with an SSD
Remember that Apple goes out of their way to make it exceptionally difficult to modify their laptops.
Edit: Strike that. Looks like the ribbon connector goes to a standard SATA power/data combo port. See here. If you can find some way to mount an SSD drive in there without having it rattle around, you might pull it off. But I wouldn't do it, personally. And I don't know how the EFI firmware or the OS will react to having an SSD where the optical drive should be.
