    More pics...got the Camshaft, Double Timing Chain, Ported Oil Pump, Underdrive Pulley, LS7 Lifters, Heads, Hardened Pushrods, Roller Rocker Arms and LS6 Valley Cover on today (the Intake is just sitting on there, not bolted on).









    Got a few questions...

    1. I thought I got all of the coolant out of the threads in the block where the head bolts go in, but apparently I didn't. When I was torqueing them down, some coolant misted out. After that the bolts went in fine (lock tite and all). Is this going to cause major problems down the road?

    2. I was rushing when I was putting the heads on and when I first torqued the bolts to 22 ft/lbs, I did not go in the specified order on the driver's side head (I just went from right to left). I caught myself immediately and when I did the 90 degrees then an additional 90 degrees on the bolts, I did them in the right order. The passenger side head was done correctly from the start. Is the driver's side head going to have problems?

    Headers/exhaust clearance issue fix, no rocking of the engine, less stress on the drivetrain when it loads/unloads

    Day Four.

    Everything is back together on the engine. I got the intake on, fuel rails assembled with thread sealant, valve covers on, coil packs on (I don't have time to paint them now, but I'll get them soon), and all of the accessories and drivebelt on.

    Goes in the car tomorrow and hopefully will start up

    I'm thinking of going with a similar set up. Waiting to see your numbers. Nice work too.

    Day Five.

    Got it in the car, with much adjusting of two jacks and the lift...it did not want to go back in. I still have some small things to do before I start her up. I have to hook up the grounds on the back on the driver's side head (forgot about them when I was reattaching the wires. I also have to fabricate some lines to hook up to my aftermarket rails. Lastly, I have to bleed the brakes and hook up my linelock (electrically).

    I also ran into a problem. As you can see in the third picture, my throttle body is stuck open, maybe 25% or so. How would I go about fixing this? Will the TCS reset after it gets power back?

    I don't want to put stickers on the outside of my car. That's my LS1.com Picnic sticker...I was planning on just putting the new ones below the old ones and just having a scrolling text type deal.

    What kind of numbers did you get? It's going to be at least a month before I get down to see Frost, and I'm eager to start bragging

    And an even just as important question is what are the draw-backs of solid motor mounts installed on a daily driver ?
