    Yeah, the y-pipe is already off and I'm going true duals, I just have to get my body mount torque arm on so I can see what I'm working with room-wise.

    can't you do a h/c/i swap with the engine still in the car...just remove the radiator and all that shit and it should be enough room to do it

    Yes, but I didn't want to bend over the fenders and whatnot...I have a bad back and this just made life so much easier.

    W/ solid motor mounts, there is "slightly" less parasitic loss to the rear wheels b/c the engine/tranny stays put. The only "drawback" is at idle, it may shake you a slight bit.

    BTW...I've been in that very same Hobby Shop MANY times over the years. Nice work!!

    Shop was closed Monday and Tuesday.

    Day Six:

    Got the little things hooked up...bled the brakes, fabricated the fuel lines, Catch Can installed, and got the Hot Wire for my Racetronix Fuel Pump rewired to the alternator.

    I thought I was ready to start her up, and when the fuel pump came on and primed the system, it leaked out of two small places where the sealant wasn't in the threads on the rails, so I had to take them appart, put more sealant on and wait till tomorrow for it to dry :roll:

    I also have to bleed the clutch and drill a new hole in the throttle body so it will close.

    IT'S ALIVE!!!

    I started her up today and let her warm up so I could fill her up with coolant. She sounds freaking amazing, even untuned. I can't wait to get the computer tuned and running right.

    I still have to figure out how to get the torque arm on. The bolts are wedged on the rear and I can't get the piece on or off (misalligned). I also can't drive her because they're touching (DS Loop). I've got 8 hours tomorrow to figure it out

    I'll post the video up tonight when I get home from work.

    I'm so happy

    Cool. You say the TQ arm and the DS saftey loop are touching? Is the suspension loaded? If not, try put the car down on all 4 wheels and check it again. Mine does the same thing, only when the car is up on 4 jack stands. Im ready to sell the damn DS SL.

    Nice job LS1C. Aren't you glad you lifted the body off the cradle to do all the work? In my issues of GMHTP almost all the tech articles have been done with the body off the cradle.
