So, at the cost of many a brain cell, BLS and I made things shine




And, in my last rockauto purchase, got a speed sensor to replace my current VSS..


Maybe now my speedo will actually read 140mph at top end. :lol:

So, warm weather, and what started as just organizing the garage...



****er is loctite'd in and torqued down tight.


Engine is not all the way in, just supported by the strut towers and the dollies under the motor. Next step is to finish the harness mods and lay that over the motor (hence the not 100% in)

Progress.

Small progress today, back is killing me and I got pissed off at the stupid ****ing fuel reg so called it quits early.

Back to a engine looking thing




Action item list getting small


Basically today was getting the engine harness organized and pulled through firewall. Aside from a few grounds, the engine could run as is now. Pulled the MAF plug for good from the harness. Got to order up stuff for the gauges, then put the dash back together, and then the BLS HID mayhem of a harness...

Another successful day with the ole LT1.

Preliminary coolant bleed, aux power for now cause god knows what loose hot leads are laying around in the car. Swallowed a few gallons, didn't leak, cylinders are all full prob


Poor picture of the hood, down, its been a long winter, excited to see it on the ground


Another couple pics of driver side, pleased with how it all came out.

So, I am an idiot.


See how low that is? Yeaaaaaa....


Corrected height


Dumb rookie mistake. Of the many lessons this never ending saga has taught me, never assume any one else knows what their doing.
