    It's not all that bad after you have done it once or twice. Remove the coil packs, pop the pins up that secure the cowl seal and go at No. 8 from below. Luck is wished!

    oh, ok....i have never dealt with coil packs before so i wasnt sure if it was as straight forward as it seems to take them off and re install, next time i will do that for sure. # 8 i got from below it was # 6 that was a pain.

    Toughest thing about removing the coil packs is the back bolt on the passenger side bracket. Some have even left it off when they re-mount the coils in order to make the next time easier.

    Finally got my drivers window motor in from RockAuto. Took a week. Not sure if saving $15 is worth a week of not being able to roll my window down. Sucks donkey balls trying to get a coffee in a drive thru. I guess I know what I'm doing tonight or tomorrow morning.

    nope mine has completely died. Lucky that it was 90% up when it did. I had to pull it up while holding the switch to get it up all the way. Lucky the a/c has been working very well since I did a recharge 2 weeks ago. I like riding with the windows down while the tops are off. Looks retarded if one window up and the other down. It's been 105 daily here since beginning of July.

    well I got it in, everything works, did it in record time, even had the panel cooperate with me and got it on on the first try. That's a first!!! Tried several more times the window just to make sure. Go to close the door and hear a weird sound. SOB!!! what now?!?!?!?


    open the door, tried the window again, no problems. thought ok, that was weird, close door again, makes the same weird noise now!!!!


    Ok, think, think, think..........check tools, yep got everything, so what could it be? Nope window hasn't come off track......



















    Then I realized that I must have left the board that was holding up the window while I had the motor off. I moved the door a couple of times and could hear it move. Yep it is still in the door!! SOB!!!!!!


    Will have to go back in tomorrow, ran out of light.

    Spiffed her up a little for T/A Nats today. Not gonna bother shining her up too much since brake dust and construction dust will just pop up on her by the time I make it to the Marriott across town..

    The H/C/I stock bottom end LS1 was 445rwhp/395rwtq...shooting for 600rwhp with the new motor.

    I opened the garage about to take her out, but its just too hot outside, so I changed my mine. Plus I'm still working on the LED park lights I installed the other day. For some reason my blinkers blink slow. When I have the lights on the park lights shine hyper white. Perfect right? When the lights are on and I turn the blinkers on, they blink hyper white first, then amber. I dont' get it. Looks good though.

    Got the Magnaflow CB installed.

    The car is actually quieter now,which my neighbors might like

    It also pulls a lot stronger through out the RPM range.

    The car still had the CB exhaust I bought it with,it looked like the stock system with a Flowbastard welded in.
