    Tuned out well. THe only thing some people dont seem to understand is that all you need is a block of wood and a transjack/floorjack to temporaly support the block while the old stuff comes out. But consider that how-to done. Wheni get back from buisness fo these next 2 weeks ill be doing the Stall, cooler, trans mount, and gauge install aswell. Damn Army has me running all over Germany for crap lately.

    I jack the GTO up and put it on stands (large metal pad right behind th cross member, where the control arms pivot) then put a 4x6 wood block under the oil pan.
    Unbolt the motor mounts.
    Jack the motor up about an inch.

    Now I have a 1" square tube steel that I lay along the strut tower brace.
    I then take a racket strap wrap twice around the brace and square tube and bolt its ends to the motor.
    Tighten the strap.
    Now you can remove the jack and the motor hangs from the brace.

    thats excessive but effective lol A trans jack with a large chock block sized piece of wood is all i used under the oil pan. No issues whats so ever. used that to hold and manuver the engine for removal and install process.

    I had the thought of using the factory struts, spring perches, and the front lower control arm mounts with a simple ladder bar setup

    might want to post this question in the Corvette section. I wish I could give you a better answer... you shouldn't have to drop your exhaust or take the bellhousing out... I know in most all ls motors you do have two bolts that go through the bottom of the bellhousing forward into the bottom/ back of the pan

    Hey sarge, just giving you a heads up just completed a torque converter swap, trans cooler install, and a trans mount intall.
    In the middle of completing the trans cooler gauge. The sensors in place, just gotta wire it in and mount the guage in the vent.

    Where does your sensor mount, in the pan? I've been thinking about getting one

    Theres a little diagnostics port right above the shift linkage that can be thread into. I forget the thread size but gloshifts sensor threads right in. u can do it with the tranny still under the car but u still need to remove the linkage 4 clearance.. I did it with the tranny out since i was there anyway. Now i just have to run the wires from the cabin to the connctors on the sensor.
