    Well I was my car all morning and didn't see anthting. My battery tested just over 11 volts so I through it on the trickle charger while I go to dinner.


    On a side not bungs are welded in and final assembly is begining. Should be an interesting evening and night and day tomorrow while I'm working on her.

    Look on the front passenger side of the block All LSX blocks I have seen have and unused threaded hole there. I used it for the catch can bracket and the ground both.

    looks like its coming together well,looks to me like you will be needing a few more clamps ones on the TB wont take long to blow it loose,anyone ever blowed a charge line while in boost weird feeling first time,not knowing what just happened..

    Again, your knowledge or lack of on the GTO, and Im sure any car,needs to keep to yourself,as I have pointed out before you are nothing but a trouble maker ,you and your minions get kicked off any legitimate GTO fourm you run your mouth on.
    Here is the ground I was referring too and it is on all of the GTO's from 04-06, bolted right too the bracket that the air conditioning pump,bolts to and then the block just as I said.

    Leave this ground off when you pull and replace the motor I garrantee the car will not start without this ground!!
    As I was telling the OP...
    Again plainly W R O N G...DAKY....LMFAO..I say bann him here as well, otherwise this will just be the same as ls1gto..this is an imformative site id like to see it stay that way..

    another angle of it one can plainly see the ground wire where it bolts to the bracket,this can only be seen from under the car,thats why I said make sure its bolted on..

    Amazing looks great!! How much boost are you going to be pushing, and did you do anything to the block?

    10-12PSI, nothing special, stock bottom motor, needs to last 1 year. Wife told me i had to wait until next year to buy my Stroker

    Will still be fun, Id be happy with anything over 550whp to be honest. But that may be difficult with the stalled auto and keeping the boost at a sane level, we shall see.

    na its easy get a boost controler or buy some meth that way you can make more power with same setup,I ran up too 18 psi on race gas back when I had the stock ls2 with boost,should have bought the meth back then,only way to run boost is on pump gas and meth!

    Got my rails on, and i must say, 180 bucks well spent with Summit, easily the most beautiful rails out there and bolt in perfectly with the supplied hardware. Two allen wrenches is all thats needed for these rails, very nice piece, some of the fitting i got were wrong, so i have to go exchange them before i can finish up, but the cross over is started and drilled my holes for the regulator, which will mount on the driver side wheel well.

    Quick Pic of the bare rails installed.
    Any thoughts on what to do with the throttle cable now?



    Got the cold side 100% complete and ready to roll, cut down to size on the driver side and tucked nicely against the frame rail.



    Thinking something like this for street driving, just have to find a way to hold it tight to the compressor, it sticks out a bit on the bottom. even looks decent. Dont care for the chrome basket, but function over form at this point, on this aspect.
