    Motor R&R Video...

    Would there be any interest of a fully documented how to VIDEO of how to drop the motor out of an lt1 4th gen car without a lift? I plan on making the video and just wanted "a show of hands" on how many of you could appreciate the video since most of the text/pic writeups out there seem vague and undetailed. Post up if you like the idea...

    I also plan on making a VIDEO of how to do a basic rebuild involving gaskets, bearings and piston rings as well as the cam swap and valvetrain assembly. Would anyone have a need for that? If nobody likes the ideas then I will just do the job without the video but if there is interest I'll take some extra time for the video.

    Here is a sample clip to show quality...

    how to video

    i would probably check that out, i wonder how much of that info would carry over to the LS1 cars. i guess the only difference is the motor but ive never gotten a good look at an LT1 car.

    A few things would but not nearly everything. I wouldn't use it as a guide for anything more than driveshaft, tranny, crossmember and kmember since the harnesses and accessories are completely different.

    On the R&R, are you pulling the motor from the top or bottom?
